Hi, I’ve struggled with “Facility Codes” in the past and am still not getting it…
I found out some of our badge readers at work can use both NFC and RFID, but the system has ever only been setup to do RFID. I found the section in the badge control software to add more badge formats, but am not exactly sure what to enter.
I’m using an NeXT, I pulled the serial with the TagInfo tool and displays in a hex format. From there I convert it to decimal and am given a 13 digit number, am I on the right track?
From here I’m trying to setup the badge format to accept the code and am stuck:
This may not help at all, but is there a section in the software which will issue reports on who has been granted access and instances where access has been denied? If so, you could swipe your HF side on a reader, which will deny access, but it should be logged. Then find the report and copy the data of the denied scan and enter it as a new user.
Quick Tip – There are essentially two kinds of badge data types; ABA and NonABA. Both data types have the same data fields available to them – ‘Badge ID’,
‘Facility’ and ‘Issue’. If using mag stripe or a barcode, you must include Badge ID
(its a required field) in your badge format. Facility and Issue are optional.
i think the easiest way to go about this is to contact the software people to see how you can start logging invalid card swipes… then see what the system sees your card as… and blamo. easy peasy.
honest to goodness, I have seen a lot of these types of shitty card systems actually NOT record any failures and have no capacity to actually log invalid swipes… so you could sit there bruteforcing card IDs all day long and the system would happily ignore you… and they call their garbage a “security product”… pshhhh
