CryptoRF is the world's first 13.56 MHz RFID technology with a 64-bit embedded cryptographic engine, dual authentication capability, and up to 64 Kbits of memory — with up to 16 individually configurable sectors. CryptoRF product labels, tags, and cards are virtually impossible to copy and provide hardware security superior to any software solution. These low-cost security devices are ideal for applications that: are prone to counterfeiting (e.g., high-value consumer items and software); require a permanent record of the chain of ownership (e.g., tracking pharmaceuticals); or use contactless smart cards for cash transactions (e.g., bus passes and loyalty cards).
