Encoding is embedding additional information on an id card that can not be read with the naked eye. The process involves writing information to a chip within the card called a smart card chip or writing the information on to the black or brown magnetic strip on the surface of the pvc card.
Encoding is easily accomplished with an encoding module found in upgraded id card printers. Through the software directing the id card printer, the information is transferred through the encoding module onto the card.
The information can then be read by appropriate readers.
Example information that may be encoded would be approval to access secure buildings or areas, medical information, personal information about employment or state record information.
