Upgrade Your Security with HID Global's iCLASS Seos Smart Cards

To increase the security of your ID badges, step up the quality of the credentials themselves. HID Global’s iCLASS® Seos™ smart cards elevate the IQ of secure credentials.


The Seos card features AES-128 encryption and best-in-class mutual authentication—an enterprise-grade system that is more secure than most credential technology. As part of the iCLASS SE platform, the high-frequency Seos smart cards provide the right combination of strong protection, flexibility, and ease of management:

  • The first enterprise-ready card that secures access to both your facility and technology.
  • Deter card cloning that occurs with proximity cards.
  • Provide one-time password (OTP) authentication for logging into the network.
  • Secure messaging protocol protects data during transmission from the card to the reader.
  • Store data for one or more Secure Identity Objects (SIO) for each application, with independent firewall protection.
  • Issue mobile credentials to a user’s smartphone.
  • Customizable with the choice of form factors—allow mobile devices to open parking gates, use wearables to access restricted areas, and enable smartcards to unlock PCs.
  • Add additional functions, like cashless vending.

Proximity cards don’t provide security at an enterprise level. Protect your people, facility, assets, and network with smarter credentials. J.
