Create your own upgradable configuration

The Architect® series is intuitive and dynamic, and consists of 6 interchangeable modules that can easily be connected to a smart
RFID core (optional Bluetooth®). The concept can be tailored to your needs, offering the optimum solution for any situation and ensuring
that all functionalities and security levels can be upgraded across all your readers.

This easy and cost saving modular approach lets you manage the security of your access points autonomously. The concept offers a greater
degree of availability and services, while optimizing your inventory by reducing the number of parts needed by 40%.

Easy access to high security

Anssi and GDPR logos for Architect

STid is the first RFID manufacturer to have received First Level Security Certification (CSPN)* and to offer access solutions compliant with new European regulations on personal data protection (GDPR). It’s a recognition of our unique know-how, the technological and security expertise that are implemented in your access architectures, whether new or existing.

Keep control and remain fully independent in your access control management. All public encryption algorithms can be used (3DES, AES, RSA, SHA…), which are recommended by official data security agencies (such as the French national agency ANSSI).

The Architect® readers use the latest MIFARE® DESFire® EV2 contactless chips with new data security mechanisms:

  • Secure Messaging EV2: secure transaction method based on AES-128.
  • Proximity Check: enhanced protection against relay attacks.

The Architect® Blue range uses an EAL5+ certified crypto processor to encrypt your data.

Best market self-protection

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