M.O.S.T. Card C6 Series Overview
The M.O.S.T. Card® C6 is a contactless, microprocessor-based smart card designed for high-speed, multi-function and high-security contactless applications, such as physical access control cards, key cards, single sign on, e-payment, loyalty and rewards, electronic healthcare management (EHR), and eID cards for military ID, civil ID and enterprise identification. The M.O.S.T. Card C6 features a contactless (RFID) interface controlled by a sophisticated microprocessor with up to 68k bytes of EEPROM and high security features at a price comparable to MIFARE and other low-security/ low-memory contactless cards. The M.O.S.T. Card C6 also benefits from rapid, easy and affordable smart card development thanks to powerful middleware, SDKs, and innovative personalization software by CardLogix. The M.O.S.T. card platform allows easy design of a smart card program that grows with your needs, supporting multiple functions, multiple on-card applications, and a variety of readers and terminals-all while maintaining the highest of security standards. The M.O.S.T. C6 family can be configured for high security identifiers, including easy-to-configure biometrics, with full support for other applications such as e-purse functionality with cyclical and purse files.
The Smart Alternative to MIFARE, ProxCard and iClass Cards
The M.O.S.T. Card C6 gives you a robust contactless (RFID) interface backed by an intelligent operating system and microprocessor with more available user memory, more advanced encryption algorithms, and more security features than a MIFARE, ProxCard (Proximity cards), or iClass card—all at a lower cost to the end user. The M.O.S.T. Card C6 leverages the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) for data encryption, the strongest encryption algorithm to date, so that your data will remain 100% confidential no matter where it is transmitted. AES has typically been found on card operating systems that support public key infrastructure, but now users can get PKI security at the price of a contactless symmetric key card.
High Security Architecture — Powered by the M.O.S.T. Card® Operating System
The M.O.S.T. Card C6 is powered by CardLogix' proprietary M.O.S.T Card Operating System which supports a variety of security measures, including SHA-1 bi-directional / mutual authentication, AES, DES, and 3DES, PIN/passwords, and internal random number generation for unique e-signatures and transaction sessions. The OS is built with an error detection code and security self-tests. The EAL certified silicon provides continuous encryption of all data and the virtualization of the data across the non-volatile memory.
Large EEPROM Storage Capacity — Up to 68k Bytes
The M.O.S.T. Card C6 family offers up to 68k bytes of user memory. The large storage capacity increases the card and password functionality, enabling multiple applications on one card, and substantially increasing security. The C6 family allows a user to safely store and transmit a large amount of personal and sensitive data contactlessly, including biometric information —data too vulnerable to manage over a loosely protected network. The M.O.S.T. Card C6 is capable of managing card holders' and card issuers' data on the card so that physical access controls systems, loyalty, e-payment and in-the-field civil ID, national ID and military identification programs can benefit from a secure closed system that does not rely on being connected to a network at all times.
Multiple Applications On One Card for Better Cost-Efficiency
With the M.O.S.T. Card C6, your organization can benefit from the economies of scale achieved by using one card for multiple purposes. Why settle for a single-purpose memory card like the iClass or ProxCard when a company can combine a physical access control system (PACS), customer loyalty program, multi-factor identification, e-payment system, single sing on, and player/ customer tracking onto one company-branded M.O.S.T. Card for the same price or less as a memory card? Improve your organization's security by arming your employees with the M.O.S.T. Card to handle multi-factor authentication and non-refutable identification. Use the same card to control facility access rights, to institute an employee incentive program, and to protect classified or sensitive data. The application possibilities are endless, and the M.O.S.T. Card C6 can handle it all to meet any of your organization's needs.
Admin Password & Injectable AES Keys — Ideal for PACS System Management
During the design phase of the M.O.S.T. Card C6, using M.O.S.T. Toolz™ Card Configuration Utility, the card issuer creates an Administration Password File, protected by a password that cannot be accessed or changed after construction. With the Admin Password File, an authorized security systems control manager can add injectable AES Keys should door locks be changed or should any password modifications be needed. This allows the manager the flexibility to safely update his or her physical access control system without having to re-issue cards.
Rapid Smart Card System Development for Flexible and Easy-to-Build Card Applications
CardLogix has provided a complete line of user-friendly development tools to create both custom and pre-configured smart card applications. Project development for the M.O.S.T. Card C6 is supported by the PCSC API and the M.O.S.T. Toolz™ Card File Creation Utility SDK, including the powerful Winplex® API. The M.O.S.T. Toolz File Creation Utility features an intuitive user-interface that allows a card issuer the flexibility to design a M.O.S.T. Card file structure and set passwords that fit the needs of any custom smart card program. M.O.S.T. Toolz also provides intelligently constructed, pre-configured idblox™ applications cards, leveraging the M.O.S.T. Card Operating System. With this option, a card issuer's only job is to setup passwords. Smart card development could not get any easier.
Eliminate the need to hire a graphic designer by starting with one of CardLogix' professionally designed, pre-printed ReadyStart™ Secure Cards or Holofoil Cards, with embedded 2D holograms. Both use high security graphic printing technology that provides additional levels of physical security to your M.O.S.T. Card®
