Identity Solutions provider HID Global has introduced the OMNIKEY Secure Element, an embedded reader which supports applications in connected workplaces, healthcare environments, education campuses and office buildings.

HID Global says the OMNIKEY Secure Element follows the iCLASS SE Processor and is part of the company’s efforts to diversify its portfolio for embedded readers and desktop technology.

OMNIKEY Secure Element provides wider integration capabilities than the iCLASS SE Processor while retaining compatibility with it at an API level for a straightforward migration.

It adds support for credential technologies including mobile IDs and employee badges in Apple Wallet, while enabling current and emerging secure access identification and authentication applications ranging from locker management to electric vehicle charging.

It also supports other technologies from HID Global, such as iCLASS, and can be used for other card protocols such as MIFARE DESFire®.
