HID 921NHRTEK000Q7 Access Control Card Reader

HID - PivCLASS RK40-H Smart Card Reader - Contact/Contactless - Cable - Black
  • The RK40 and RPK40 utilize the pivCLASS Authentication Module (PAM) to perform cryptographic operations required to pass FICAM's E-PACS testing.
  • Security critical operations are performed within the secure perimeter, rather than on the attack side of the door, increasing security and reader affordability.
  • Maximum flexibility is achieved through in-field sidecar expansion to add a contact interface, an LCD to display messages to the cardholder and a biometric sensor.
  • Supports a phased approach to FICAM compliance. Can be used as a standalone reader to read legacy and FIPS 201 type smart cards. PAMs can be added later to achieve FICAM compliance by providing strong multifactor authentication.
  • Ideal for "Uncontrolled" areas where access control is desired but strong authentication FICAM compliance is not required.

Auto-tuning feature automatically adjusts the reader for optimal read range performance on any mounting surface.
Using 13.56 MHz contactless smart card technology, the iCLASS RK40 6130 provides a powerful solution. Combine a contactless card presentation with a personal identification number (PIN) to support dual authentication of identity or configure the panel for single-factor authentication, using only a card or a PIN. The PIN can be verified either at the access control panel or locally by the keypad reader. When verified locally, the PIN must be programmed into the iCLASS card. Featuring crisp architectural styling, the keypad reader has an elegantly curved faceplate. The 12-position weatherproof keypad uses discrete switches to provide positive tactile response, optionally reinforced by an audible tone. The keypad also features a waterproof silicone rubber boot, vandal-resistant metal keycaps, and backlit numbering.
HID 921NHRTEK000Q7 Overview
  • Part of an integrated solution from a single, trusted provider - Enables FIPS 201 compliance per NIST SP 800-116 guidelines and the TWIC Reader Specification
  • Reconfigurable in field - can be upgraded in the field to achieve higher assurance levels with the addition of a contact or contact plus biometric "sidecar"
  • Transitional reader - supports reading PIV, PIV-I, CAC, CIV, TWIC, FRAC, iCLASS® and HID Prox® cards for easy, phased transitions from legacy technology to new PKIenabled smart cards
  • Contactless reader with keypad for "Uncontrolled" security areas - enables "PIN to PACS" approach using both legacy and FIPS-201 cards

HID Global's pivCLASS Government Solutions enable facilities to upgrade their existing physical access control systems (PACS) to achieve FIPS 201/FICAM compliance without the need to rip-and-replace their existing system. The RK40 and RPK40 are designed to support multiple use cases leading to full FICAM compliance.

Transitional reader - in this approach the reader can be used standalone to read legacy iCLASS and HID prox cards as well as FIPS 201 type cards and pass the card identifier directly to the panel. The key pad can be used to send a user entered PIN directly to the PACS panel. When used with the pivCLASS Registration Engine and Certification Manager software this approach provides a solution for a smooth transition to full FICAM compliance as well as a cost effective solution for "Uncontrolled" doors where access control is desired but FICAM compliance is not required.

FICAM compliant reader - to be FICAM compliant requires the addition of the pivCLASS Authentication Module (PAM) to provide single factor strong authentication.

This configuration supports the CHUID + VIS and card authentication key (CAK) authentication modes as described in NIST Special Publication 800-116.

Two-factor strong authentication can be achieved by adding the HID pivCLASS contact reader sidecar. This sidecar provides a contact card reading slot and an LCD that displays messages and instructions to the card holder. This configuration supports the CHUID + VIS, CAK authentication modes over both the contactless and contact reader interfaces. It also supports the PKI + PIN authentication mode on the contact interface with match-oncard of the PIN.

Three-factor strong authentication can be achieved by adding the HID pivCLASS contact plus biometric reader sidecar. In addition to a contact card reading slot this sidecar also provides a biometric sensor. This configuration supports CHUID + VIS and CAK over both the contactless and contact reader interfaces. The PKI + PIN with match-on-card of the PIN and the PKI + PIN + BIO authentication modes use the contact interface.
