What cards does it support?

The Broadcom BCM performs critical functions on the chip and is isolated from the main microprocessor and operating system so it can fully store and process sensitive information such as passwords and unique hardware identifiers. All this is cool, but, where is the documentation? When using the Dell reader with iClass cards, what formats does it support? I have the same question 1.

security device BCM 5880

When it comes to the Dell laptops, my guess is that this Standard Master Key is stored securely in the reader itself or the Credentials Vault. Besides, it has been equipped with 1. I have had my fingerprint reader not the broadcom enabled, however I didn’t like it much. Create a free website or blog at WordPress.

Using the card on your Dell laptop: Did this solve your problem? But the hardware sure is supported without xevice and without the need for a separate driver. I have a Dell Latitude E running Ubuntu It seems for now, the reader can only be used by supported Dell software.


The Standard Master Key is stored in secure memory in all authorized iClass readers. Unfortunately Dell seems to have very little information available on their web pages, so I had to start digging myself. But be aware, the CSN can be read by anyone, and the communication between the card and reader is unencrypted, unlike the iClass cards, where the reader and card first goes through a mutual authentication process, before the identification number is read from secure memory, and then finally transmitted in encrypted form to the reader.

Do you get any error message?

You can follow the question or vote as helpful, but you cannot reply to this thread. I recently bought a Dell Precision M Covet. They all seem to work fine with the embedded contactless reader. Here are scans of some of the cards I have tested: For example given the number: The security application of Broadcom BCM combines securityy recognition, personal recognution, data protection, and other functions on a single chip processor.

Vijay B Replied on April 27, Describe the issue the best you can. I would guess the reader is format agnostic.


In reply to GilbertoMagpantay’s post on May 2, It also puts a lot of today’s application functions such as one-time password OTPfingerprint reader, smart card, and non-contact reader, etc. Tech support scams are an industry-wide issue where scammers attempt to trick you into paying for unnecessary technical support services. On a side note: What you may need to have applications be able to use it is the “pkcs11” packages for your distro to have the security protocol coupling in place for this kind of authentication.

The high level bc5880 integration of the BCM enables a single-chip design to deliver a significantly more powerful and cost-effective solution for these types of applications and integrates Broadcom’s on-chip secure “vault” with audio and video, along with a memory controller, a smart card interface, and many communication ports. What cards did you test? Should just work because it’s certified by Canonical Enterprise Services: As such this thread is now locked.
