Today RFID is widely accepted as 'standard' technology in Access Control
markets, but both within the industry and outside of it do we really understand
the technology fully and do we know how it is manufactured, how passwords are
stored on the media, is the information encrypted, how is it accessed, what are
the various technologies on the market and do they differ?
presentation looks deeper into access control as a concept, as a product and
even as a service (ACaaS). Technology and its application develops quickly and
the security & access markets must ensure they are using the right
technology in the right application to ensure effective use, commercial
viability and importantly that security levels are maintained at all times.
