Honeywell is working with Integrated Engineering to offer OmniAssure contactless smart card readers compliant with FIPS 201. The readers combine compliance with convenience using a flash-on-card design that allow the readerâ€™s flash firmware to be updated without removing the readers from the wall. The updates support current changing government standards such as FIPS 201, Transportation Worker Identification Credential, and First Responder Authentication Credentials. Simple configuration cards can also be used to manage security keys and change the operating characteristics of the reader. Additionally, the contactless smart card readers feature built-in hardware to support future RS485 protocols, and both the reading and writing of smart card credentials.
