D0wn y D1rty con Wiegand

A few months ago, we published a history of where Weigand came from and a XCHARXlight-on-technical-detailsXCHARX overview of how it works. For those of us that are more engineer-y, it left a bit to be desired. For me in particular, I recently was doing some low level work with one of my engineers. We were monitoring the lines from a badge reader and I couldnXCHARXt recall what the spec for the pulse width should be. For most people, this level of detail is overkill, but since for those of you who get down and dirty with D0/D1 of Wiegand, this post is for you.

Como recordará de nuestra publicación anterior, Wiegand se usa indistintamente para describir varias cosas: un efecto electrónico, una tarjeta de acceso, un flujo de bits.

Wiegand - La interfaz de control de acceso venerable se explica en detalle en esta publicación.

associated with a card, or a specific reader-to-card interface. We are going to be referring to Wiegand as the signal that comes from an access control reader, out of the Data 0 (D0) and Data 1 (D1) lines. This data is interpreted as an access card number by parsing the bit stream.

El estándar Wiegand es solo un estándar de facto, pero hay un Asociación de la Industria de Seguridad (SIA) documento “Protocolo estándar de control de acceso para la interfaz del lector Wiegand (tm) de 26 bit” which describes an agreed standard that should work with all manufacturers’ panels. Some of the basic information found in this document is found below.

When a reader with a Wiegand interface is hooked up to an access panel, it generally includes 6 lines with the below color scheme, which interfaces with the back end access panel.

Las salidas D0 (verde) y D1 (blanca) son lectores Wiegand de color casi universal.

Back when Telaeris was developing our XPressProx mobile proximity reader to read HID Prox cards, we needed to demodulate the data directly from the RF signal (*). Once we decoded this signal, the data was pushed both over a USB connection as well driving the signal as over standard D0/D1 Wiegand lines. When we hooked up our Agilent 54622D Oscilloscope to the data lines and presented different cards to the reader, these are examples of what we saw:

Salida de bit 26
Bits de salida 26 10000000100000010111001011 
   paridad incluso 1            paridad impar 1 
                Instalación 00000001 = 1    
          ID de placa = 741 0000001011100101 
Salida de bit 36
 Bits de salida 36 011011001011001000100101101011100101 
Salida de bit 37
Bits de salida 37 0001001000000011111101000001011001000

The 26 bit card is parsed out for you to see as the bit format is almost universally standard. The 36 and 37 bit cards are part of HIDXCHARXs corporate 1000 line, which often mix up the location of the bits in weird and wonderful ways. The security in these cards is often simply that it is difficult to know how a bit stream might be parsed. These bitstreams can come in a variety of lengths, all the way up to 200 for some US Government PIV cards.
