At the recent Frontline Solutions Expo in Chicago, Infineon Technologies, a Siemens company, announced the availability of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) products with heightened security features that enable Infineon and its partners to produce identification systems that are resistant to counterfeiting or unauthorised tampering.
The new crypto version of Infineon's 'my-d' chips can be used to store and protect confidential data on a 'smart label', or to securely embed information into manufactured goods during production. In personal identification applications, the security features can be used to authenticate the access status of a cardholder. The features also support secure storage of cash value amounts, allowing use of the chips in cards for prepaid payment applications.
The secure version of my-d incorporates advanced features such as a mutual authentication algorithm based on 64 bit keys and secret key pairs to help limit unauthorised access to data in the secure memory sectors.
