USB Card Reader Configuration Guide i

Overview This document describes how to configure off box authentication to a Solution Partner Authentication server with a USB card reader using the new open USB standard. The USB card reader is connected directly to the USB port on the Xerox machine. When the USB card reader is connected to the machine, an external card reading controller is no longer required.

This feature is used to control access to the MFP via employee badge to a partner authentication server. Once the server is setup to communicate with the device and selected Services are locked at the LUI, access to those locked services will only be granted to walk up users with valid cards and/or System Administrators.

Supported Reader Technology Employee badges can contain one or multiple technologies for storing user identity information. The 4 prominent methods in use today are Wireless which is also known as Proximity, Magnetic Stripe, Visual Barcode and Smart Cards. This document addresses support for Proximity, Magnetic Stripe and Visual Barcode readers. There are two classes of proximity readers, those which can read the Card Serial Number (CSN) and those which can read from secure memory segments contained on specific card types. This solution will only support proximity readers which send the CSN.

Smart Card Authentication (CAC / PIV / .NET etc) are addressed in the Smart Card feature documentation.

Operation This feature is designed to read data from an employee badge and to package that data into a message which is sent to the server running software from a solution provider. This requires that the solution provider has developed their software to be compatible with this feature using the Convenience Authentication API.

This feature enables solution providers to provide authentication, pull printing and accounting which is tied the user associated with the employees badge. This feature is configured using most of the Xerox Secure Access set up screens but is not compatible with the Xerox Secure Access feature itself. It is not compatible with the white card readers supplied as part of Xerox Secure Access.

Each of the currently approved badge readers has internal intelligence to read a card and to acknowledge success by blinking the LED or creating sound with the beeper on the reader itself. Note that this behavior is different than with the Xerox Secure Access (XSA) solution. With XSA, the authentication server is in control of the LED on the reader. This means users will observe faster acknowledgement that their card has been recognized because that recognition does not require communication with a server. A side effect is that the LED indications will not be consistent with those of the XSA solution.

The card readers will have power applied when the MFP is awake and while it is in Sleep mode. A card swipe will take the MFP out of Sleep mode and will initiate an authentication sequence. To meet EPA

USB Card Reader Configuration Guide 2

Energy Star requirements, power is removed from the reader when the MFP enters Deep Sleep. In Deep Sleep the card reader will appear to be dead. Since the reader has no power, the LED will not be illuminated. A card swipe in Deep Sleep mode will be ignored. Users must first awaken the MFP using the Energy Saver button. Once the MFP is awake, the card reader will again be functional.

Diagnostics USB card readers have been chosen which communicate using the Human Interface Device (HID) keyboard emulation mode. The rationale for this decision is primarily to aid in the ability to troubleshoot problems in the field. An HID reader can be plugged directly into any personal computer and tested independent from the MFP. All one need do is open a document application such as Microsoft Notepad which expects Text as input. If an employee badge is swiped across the reader, the CSN will be displayed in the Notepad application. This makes it easy to diagnose reader related problems in the field.

Since this is a relatively new feature we have chosen to start cautiously. As a result the only readers which will be recognized are those which have been tested and found acceptable by engineering. If any reader is connected which is not listed in Appendix A, the MFP will totally ignore it. The Configuration section of this document will address how the MFP will indicate that a non-supported reader is connected.

Card Reader Software

Magnetic Stripe Reader Constraints

There is a wide variety in the factory default behavior of magnetic stripe readers. While all of the tested readers are capable of supporting the applicable ISO standards they do not initially send the card data in exactly the same way. Each of the supported readers can be programmed in the way they send card data and each of the manufacturers provides PC based tools to program the reader. As a result a standard configuration can be defined across all readers.

In our defined standard configuration the reader will emit every line of data which the magnetic stripe card contains. The reader will emit all line sentinels, field separators and line termination characters and will not mask out any data. This will enable solution partners full access to card data which can be processed as they desire.

Appendix B contains directions to properly configure each magnetic stripe reader.

Must be using supported cards and card readers. See Appendix A.

The Secure Socket Layer (SSL) must be enabled

Note

Extensible service setup has to be enabled if the Xerox Extensible Interface Platform (EIP) application is used.

The open USB card reader standard cannot be used with Xerox Secure Access branded card readers.

Installation Connecting the USB card reader Connect the card reader to one of the available USB ports on the MFP. The reader can be mounted in a number of locations on the MFP. For example, it can be placed on the top panel next to the UI, on the left hand shelf or on the top of the finisher. Most of the tested readers will indicate that they have power and are operational by illuminating an LED and possibly emitting a sound once the card reader has booted up. Please insure the card reader software is at the latest level by checking with the particular manufacture web site as outlined in Appendix A. Some readers require a particular configuration to be compatible with the MFP. This is defined in Appendix B. Please be sure the software and configuration are correct before the reader is installed on the MFP.

Appendix B Card Reader Configuration Setting Elatec TWN3 Software Elatec TWN3 readers must have at least software version V3 03d/4.39 to operate properly on the WorkCentre 53xx, WorkCentre 7120, and WorkCentre 74xx. If connecting an Elatec reader with earlier software to one of these products, the reader software will need to be upgraded first. Please contact Elatec Customer Support for this software update. (support@elatec-rfid.com)

Magnetic Stripe Reader Configuration The ISO specification for magnetic stripe cards defines the data format for the 3 possible tracks on a mag stripe card. Each line starts with a unique character called a sentinel which denotes which line of data is being read. The ISO spec specifies characters used to define the data blocks within a line as well as the line termination character. Shown below are three lines of data contained on a hypothetical 3 track mag stripe card: %B6006493801^XEROX ^1012110 LQI? ;6006493801=101211050282809? ; 6006493801? Xerox MFPs require this data to be concatenated into a single string with only one carriage return as the terminating character. %B6006493801^XEROX ^1012110 LQI?;6006493801=101211050282809?; 6006493801? In order to determine if the reader conforms to the Xerox standard, the reader can be easily tested using a personal computer.

1) Open a text document tool like Microsoft Notepad 2) Connect the magnetic stripe reader to a USB port on the computer 3) Wait for the card reader driver to be installed. 4) Swipe one of the customers mag stripe cards. 5) Observe the data displayed in Notepad.

a. If the data is presented in a single line with one carriage return the reader is compatible and no programming is required.

b. If the reader sends multiple lines or strips off the line start and end characters, the reader will need to be reprogrammed.

Each of the card readers listed in Appendix Acan be reprogrammed to this format using tools supplied by each manufacturer. Below are URLsto the manufacturers websites where the card reader configuration tool can be retrieved. Note that the YSoft and ID TECH Magnetic stripe readers listed in Appendix A already conformed to the Xerox standard and did not need to be upgraded.
