ICODE DNA combines long-range contactless performance with AES
cryptographic authentication to further protect privacy
May 03, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --
(RFID Journal Live) –
NXP Semiconductors N.V.
(NASDAQ:NXPI) today introduced ICODE DNA to its family of ICODE products. As
part of its continuing commitment to deliver secure identification solutions,
NXP’s new ICODE DNA enhances security for vicinity applications by enabling
tag authentication and privacy protection based on cryptographic security. NXP
will showcase its ICODE DNA device, with new products and customer
programmable originality signatures at RFID Journal Live,
May 3-5, in
Orlando, Florida, booth, #804.
NXP’s family of ICODE products is an industry leader for high frequency (HF)
smart label solutions with billions of ICS in the field and thousands of
successful installations. The new ICODE DNA device combines traditional ICODE
best-in-class features such as exceptional RF performance, but now includes
AES cryptographic authentication, Near Field Communication (NFC)
readability and cloud connectivity.
“With ICODE DNA, our customers can be confident they are providing their
clients industry leading standards of protection,” said Ralf Kodritsch,
segment manager RFID solutions for the secure identification business line at
NXP Semiconductors. “Our
customers rely on us to deliver technology and security solutions that are
easy to integrate. The customer programmable originality signature is an
additional feature that, in connection with the NFC phone readability, will
open a range of possibilities for our customers’ clients.”
According to R&D team leaders at Techsun Group ICODE DNA represents a
fundamental approach to ensure authenticity of its clients’ products such as
liquors which are targeted at counterfeiters and illicit trade. NXP’s ICODE
chips provide traceability from source to sale along the supply chain, are
easy to integrate and allow protection of luxury brands.
Cryptographic Authentication with ICODE DNA
NXP ICODE DNA provides cryptographic authentication to enable privacy
protection and uses through ISO/IEC 29167-10 standardized tag authentication.
Its cryptographic security uses three 128-bit keys based on
AES (advanced encryption standard) algorithms. The high data
integrity of 16-bit CRC framing and 53 kbit/s fast data transfer leads to fast
anti-collision read. The persistent quiet mode feature allows for faster
inventory speed than before.
ICODE DNA provides medical equipment, high-value brand manufacturers and
suppliers convenient document tracking and authentication from source to sale
along the supply chain. Additionally, system integration can be made easy with
a broad range of supporting tools.
