Our Card & Reader Technology
nXient also provides a complete range of card based solutions, readers and peripheral devices to complement our Hirsch Identive offering. With in-house capabilities for credential issuance, personalisation and fulfilment services for the consumer, government and corporate customer, nXient offers clients ID systems management, hardware and engineering services as well as full implementation and program management.

Our S-R and S-RX series of access control readers provide advanced 125 KHz technology proximity and in the case of the S-RX series, 125 KHz and 13.56 MHz Dual frequency access reader is specifically designed to support upgrading widely used Proximity credentials legacy infrastructure to contactless 13.56MHz credential infrastructure. With this product it is possible to have an access control installation with both HF and LF contactless credentials at the same time.
We are also very excited about our new range of IDENTIV uTrust TS Readers. uTrust TS is a family of readers designed to offer system integrators and users robust performance and maximum card technology flexibility. uTrust TS has the ability to work with system changes as alterations such as expansion, corporate mergers or simply the desire to expand and increase your facility’s security are made. Whether an installation be on a corporate campus, a university or in a complex government environment, uTrust TS fully supports your population of access control users.
This in addition to supporting all your proximity and smart card requirements, uTrust offers compatibility with the open standard credential PLAID, which is a standards-based mutual authentication process to access secure card data. Authentication ensures that information is transferred only after the system has determined that both parties in the system are trustworthy and has validated that the data can be transferred securely.
uTrust TS can be configured for the needs of your system which enables the user to make changes as their system needs in order to accommodate changes in the facility or the security market.
With the convergence of physical access and the corporate network, uTrust TS is ready with remote connectivity. Most importantly, you get “peace of mind” with uTrust, since all your keys and certificates reside in an EAL+ certified Secure Access Module (SAM) and cannot be compromised.
ID Management Solutions
NXIENT’s ID Concierge provides organisations with greater flexibility when deploying ID Cards for various uses within their facilities. ID Concierge can be customised to suit the Enterprise needs of the organisation, including a wide range of capabilities.
• ID Management
• Database integration
• Badge Printing
• Technology card Encoding
• Self-serve Kiosk operation
• Visitor Management
• Access Control privledge provisioning
ID Concierge allows companies who have smartcard-based ID cards for access control or companies wishing to deploy smartcard-based systems for access control and other uses, to use their existing ID cards and extend their capability by adding additional functionality and power to their existing card.
For example: A large organisation can use different Sectors on a Mifare or Mifare DESFire based Smartcard for access control in different buildings.
Sector 1 could be used for the Brisbane building, Sector 2 for the Melbourne building and so on. They can also extend the capability of the existing cards, by adding "Follow-me-print" using the Staff ID that is encoded to sector 9, or the secure Technology Lockers by encoding the same data to Sector 10.
Using this approach, each sector on the Smartcard uses its own secure keyset, which means that it can be given to different system suppliers with-out compermising the security of the card.
Smartcard readers for the various systems are programmed with the necessary Read Keyset and sector information to access the encoded data and pass it through to the application for authentication.
As new systems are deployed, a card holder presents his or her ID Card to the reader on the kiosk to be updated.
Common uses are:
• Building Access Control
• Follow-Me-Print systems
• Staff Lockers
• Staff ID Number
• Card Holder ID Verification (including an Image)
• Event Ticketing
• Loyalty & Rewards
• Login Credential
The Kiosk will operate as an unattended system waiting for a User to present their ID Badge/Access Control card to the Smartcard reader.
Once the user presents their card, the kiosk authenticates the card by checking the Sector authentication key and the encoded access number. It uses this information to check the database for a valid user.
Once the user is validated, it either processes the card updates or in the case of an Administrator, can log them into the application.
