HID? is a provider of secure identity solutions. Used primarily for large secure deployments and not intended for hobbyist or consumer use.

In 2011, NYU migrated the entire university ID system to use this. Because of the migration, the data on each NYU ID card is encrypted and is unique to every organization.

The RFID readers at the NYU Bobst Library is the RP40 Multiclass reader.

The RP40 is a multi-technology card reader designed for customers upgrading their current card system from HID Prox to iCLASS® credentials. With the RP40 reader, the customer has the ability to transition to smart cards over time while incorporating the use of multiple card technologies within a single building or across multiple facilities.

Unlike contactless smart card serial number readers, with the RP40 multiCLASS™ reader, you get enhanced security through mutual authentication and data encryption.
