Fargo card printers and encoders will now feature DESFire

Beginning with the HDP600 Card Printer/Encoder, all Fargo card printers/encoders will employ DESFire encoding. This technology, based on the MIFARE platform, will offer the speed, functionality, and convenience of contactless cards while offering a higher level of security. DESFire encrypts the information stored on the smart chip as well as well as the communications between the chip and the DESFire reader. The new technology is suited to government initiatives like HSPD-12 and HIPAA.
