Central Services for Identification offers a high security proximity card – smart cards – containing biometric data with complete protection against counterfeit through the use of either a hologram laminate or through the use of a unique, low cost, hologram coating technology.

For the highest level of security biometric or body measurement – such as a fingerprint or retinal scan – can be used to reliably identify authorized personnel. The most practical way to implement a system like this is to store the encoded biometric on a smart card containing a micro chip which has a built-in memory and encryption processor.

When the card is used, the smart card reader ensures that the code on the card is valid and then waits for a live fingerprint scan which matches the fingerprint stored on the card before granting access.

The cards used in a biometric access control system can either be contact or perimeter type. A Contact type system requires direct insertion of the card into a card reader. A perimeter type operates in a similar way to a prox card but using a higher frequency (13.5 MHz). CSI has the ability to print smart cards and encode them in one operation. Our clients are assured the highest level of security protection.
