Worms / Hannover, 14th March 2013. KOBIL Systems, the manufacturer and market-leading trendsetter of innovative technologies in data and digital identity, launches the contactless card reader KOBIL iDtoken on the market.

The KOBIL iDtoken can be connected to any computer and many mobile devices via the standard USB port. The new product from KOBIL is compatible with the new identity card and is certified by the Federal Office for Information Security (BSI). With the KOBIL iDtoken, the user can deal with the authorities online, confirm his place of residence and use De-Mail with all options as well as many other things. He has access to age-restricted services and can fill in forms automatically. These are just some of the many possible applications. The card reader does not save any user specific information at all. With the new identity card the user can access his account to web services conveniently and securely.

The KOBIL iDtoken is an approved RFID reader and is therefore suitable for many other contactless applications, too.

“As a German manufacturer, we are proud of the fact that the iDtoken is one of the few certified card readers currently available. Our card reader is the least expensive and smallest device for the new identity card on the market. Thanks to its compact design, it can be carried along at any time – even in your trouser pocket – and thus offers the greatest possible flexibility. Since no cable – or power connection is necessary, the iDtoken can therefore be used without any problem, for example, when travelling, in the train or in any hotel in the whole world”, Ismet Koyun, the CEO of KOBIL Systems.

The KOBIL iDToken can be purchased immediately via the KOBIL online-shop (https://shop.kobil.com) at a price of €29.90.
