Personally im more of a beg for forgiveness rather than ask for permission kind of guy, but if its the government I might befriend one of the IT or security guys and ask them. Also before you go putting an implant in your body you should probably check what credential system they use because it might not be compatible with any of the chips sold.
Due to your work. It’s probably better not to share your card information on an open forum.
But if you download TagInfo, and scan your work card, It is good for identifying Chipsets and from there we can suggest compatiable implants.
Since Aoxhwjfoavdlhsvfpzha found some great info for you; there were some standout options, in order of ease that I would personally choose
I work for government as well, my nearby coworkers know about my NExT implant, but they only know about the NFC portion because they scanned it on their phones. A lot of staff at my job keep their ID badges in a wrist strap thingy because every door has a scanner next to the knob, so it’s easy for me to hide the fact that I use my implant because everyone thinks I have my ID by my wrist.
Considering how government works, I’d ask for forgiveness than ask for permission. That’s the principle I’m working off right now. It’ll take ages before you get an answer from the powers at be if you can use your implant or not, and the most likely answer will be “no”.
Underscore this. For your job, shoot for sharing the least amount possible. If you send a tag info for your cat door, or your mug warming vault, nbd. But stuff you don’t intrinsically own, is begging for issues. Off topic, maybe an open source “identify this device” app that explicitly doesn’t share IDs or secrets contained, and spits out two distinct sections of easily readable text:
Public - Key construction info or this device supports information.
Private - A don’t share publicly format that can be consumed by trusted apps and configuration utilities
is LIKELY LF but, we still aren’t 100% if it’s LF or HF.
Now you probably need a diagnostic tool of some description, like a xFD or RFID Diagnostic card BUT all this will do is confirm for you what frequency your card is; If you want to do anything with that information, you will need a ProxMark3 to read and write to it.
If you were to buy a PM3 and a NExT implant you would get free shipping (check the DT shipping to confirm)
Free shipping for qualified orders. Check our shipping policy for more info.
The NExT may not be the MOST suitable for your specific use case, but it is generally a great all-round option…if your card is LF, then the NExT implant will be almost certainly be compatiable, however, the only problem you MAY have is, not all readers are made equally, and sometimes xSeries can struggle to be read, but you won’t really know until you try.
I guess you have a few decisions to make, but if you still have questions, fire away.
