DeepCover® secure NFC/RFID transponders (tags) and transceivers (readers) employ a bidirectional security model to enable the most secure contactless communication possible. Our RFID transceiver IC includes a SHA-256 secure authenticator coprocessor based on the FIPS 180-4 standard. When paired with our NFC transponder ICs, the bidirectional security model enforces two-way authentication. Each NFC tag includes a unique 64-bit ROM ID that serves as an electronic serial number within the application. Our secure NFC tags and RFID readers empower new industrial and medical applications, such as slave-device secure authentication, automated device configuration, usage limit setting and sensor-tag implementation.
