HID Global announced its Omnikey 5427CK Chip Card Interface Device and keyboard wedge reader, which eliminates complex software lifecycle management issues in the field by allowing integrators to design contactless solutions without having to install or maintain drivers. These contactless readers can be used for secure print authentication applications in printers and copiers, for single-sign-on (SSO) solutions, and for access control systems and networks. Using the keyboard wedge functionality, users of the Omnikey 5427CK can retrieve data from a credential that is presented to the reader and directly input the card data into an application using keystrokes emulation. This eliminates the need for customers to manually enter credential data into an application. For embedded applications, HID Global also offers an Omnikey 5127CK reader board that enables the same functionality.
