Welcome to high security

Anssi flat

STid is the first RFID manufacturer to have received First Level Security Certification (CSPN). 
It’s a recognition of our unique know-how, the technological and security expertise that are implemented
in your access architecture, whether new or existing.

The Architect® One Blue reader uses the latest MIFARE® contactless chip technologies with new data security mechanisms. 

All public encryption algorithms can be used (3DES, AES, RSA, SHA, etc.), which are recommended 
by official data security agencies (such as the French national agency ANSSI).


The Architect® One Blue series uses an EAL5+ cryptoprocessor to improve protection and privacy.

End-to-end security control

With top-level security certification (CSPN) from the French National Agency for the Security of Information Systems (ANSSI), STid secures and protects your data.

In addition to an integrated cross-level quality process within the company, we have implemented a constant auditing procedure with a number of external security audits (PHONESEC).

Best market self-protection

The innovative tamper protection system protects sensitive data and gives the possibility to delete the authentication keys (patented solution). Unlike the current solutions on the market, the reliability of the accelerometer based technology avoids it being outsmarted.
