How the ID06 system works

ID06 is a system for electronic personnel registries in the construction industry. It was developed by The Swedish Construction Federation (Sveriges Byggindustrier) to create safer workplaces. Today, the ID06 system is managed by the company ID06 AB.

Higher security in ID06 card 2.0

The purpose of the new card is to increase security and minimize the risk of cards being manipulated or copied. It is also important to strengthen the connection between employer and employee, as well as show that there is an employment and that the employer is serious. The system makes it difficult to employ black labour, a problem that the construction industry focuses on getting rid of.

What is new?

ID06 card 2.0 has confidence level 2 (Level of Assurance 2, also abbreviated LoA2), which means a high level of trust and the card follows the eIDAS regulation, which, for example, regulates BankID in Sweden.

Name, photo and card number are laser engraved, which means that the data cannot be scratched away. Some customers find that the new cards are greyer than before and the laser engraving makes the results look different to the previous ones, but it will be a safer and more sustainable result.

The new cards also contain several techniques, partly an emulation (software copy) of MIFARE Classic and PIV standard (Personal Identification Verification), which means that the same information that is engraved and visible on the card is also on a secure certificate in the card.

The EM technology that previously existed in the card is removed when the EM does not meet the safety requirements set by ID06 AB. Those who use the EM, for example to enter buildings, need to supplement the new ID06 cards. It can be done in several different ways and we recommend one of the following:

  • Card holder with EM transponder
  • Card with EM technology
  • Key fob with EM

All options are available in the Nexus order portal
