The ID CPR74 was primarily designed for eTicketing applications (like eTicket Germany) and is prepared for certification according to EMVCo Level 1, BSI TR-03105 Part 4 or in the future CEN/TS 16794.
It has four sockets for Security Access Modules (SAM) and provides operation with the internal and an external antenna for two read points in a single device due to an integrated antenna multiplexer.
For ticketing solutions in public transport markets, reader with 4 integrated SAM sockets are increasingly in demand. A SAM is a "Secure Access Module" that performs encryption and authentication processes, and serves as a secure memory for cryptographic keys. If a ticket machine, for example, is used by cardholders of various transport associations, the SAMs are needed for authentication of the cards and for decryption and encryption of the data that has to be read from this card resp. write to this card.
