iCLASS cards on HID OMNIKEY 5427 CK

PACSprobe now also supports HID OMNIKEY readers with iCLASS SIO processor. The reader has an on-board crypto controller for secure key storage and processing cryptographic protocols in a secure environment.

This means that now CardWerk’s SmartCardAPI(professional) can be used to access iCLASS cards on OMNIKEY 5127 CK and 5427 CK readers.

Mutual authentication between host and reader, session key generation and data exchange over a secure channel, are all hidden. PACSprobe handles all this under the hood and not a single change has changed  on the user interface. All you’ll notice is support for more card readers.

We tested this with OMNIKEY 5427 CK SP 3.1.
