Comprehensive access control solutions feature at Secutech 2015

Comprehensive access control solutions feature at Secutech 2015

Editor / Provider: Secutech | Updated: 11/18/2014 | Article type: Tech Corner

Access control has long been a vital portion of physical security and can be divided into three categories, namely password-based access control, card-based access control, and biometrics-based access control, according to the system's input, transmission, and control methods. The functions and characteristics of each type of access control are explained here in this article.

Password-based access control: This is a system that requires a password to open doors. The electronic lock will open once the password is deemed correct. The advantage is that the system requires no keys or cards; only the password needs to be entered. But there are some disadvantages, too. One of them is that the key-in and reading of passwords may take some time. This may result in a long queue as workers enter a building to get to work. Another disadvantage is a low level of security: passwords can be guessed by people's gestures or stains that they leave on the keypad. Passwords are also easily forgotten or revealed. That's why access control systems based on passwords have become less and less popular.

Card-based access control systems can be further divided into two subcategories: those using contact cards and those using contactless cards. Contact cards, which can be broken or worn out, have become less common and are seen only at banks or unmanned ATM vestibules. Contactless cards, meanwhile, are durable, cost-effective, fast, and more secure. These features have made contactless cards the mainstream access control technology at present time. Contactless cards, indeed, are seen as the embodiment of access control.

The last category is biometrics, which identifies people based on their particular physical attributes. Common biometrics technologies include fingerprints, finger veins, iris scans, and facial recognition. A key advantage is that cards are not required for opening doors. In addition, overlapping or duplication of physical attributes is extremely unlikely, making the system secure. A disadvantage is that biometrics solutions are expensive. Meanwhile, physical attributes may change according to variations in the environment. For example, disparities in humidity may cause minor changes to fingerprints, while finger veins and the face may change along with age. The iris may change slightly due to eye diseases. These changes may increase the system's false acceptance rate and false recognition rate. Yet, the accuracy of biometrics systems has improved continuously, and cost has gone down by the year. This has led to increased deployment.

In addition, in recent years we are seeing more diverse applications in different vertical markets. These include NFC- and RFID-based access control and solutions that combine access control and mobile equipment. All these products and solutions will feature at the Access Control Pavilion – Asia's most comprehensive access control exhibition – at secutech 2015, held from April 28 to 30. To find out which access control companies will take part in the show, please go to www.secutech.com.

IdenTrust IGC PKI certificates cross-certified with the U.S. Federal Bridge Authority

IdenTrust IGC PKI certificates cross-certified with the U.S. Federal Bridge Authority

Editor / Provider: HID Global | Updated: 10/29/2014 | Article type: Security 50

IdenTrust, part of HID Global, has achieved U.S. Federal Bridge Authority (US FBCA) cross-certification at Basic, Medium Software, Medium Hardware, and PIV-I Assurance levels with its IGC PKI certificate. HID Global will be exhibiting at the Smart Card Alliance Government Conference on October 29-30 in Washington D.C.

Each individual IGC PKI certificate includes both a certificate for identity authentication and digital signing and a certificate for encryption. The certificate pair enables a wide range of uses, particularly for the healthcare and government industries, where a high degree of trust and interoperability is required. Customers can deploy IGC PKI credentials via a “Software as a Service” delivery model or via delivery through an on premise CMS such as HID Global's ActivID® CMS.

“Cross-certification with the U.S. Federal Bridge transforms the IGC PKI certificate,” said Karen J. Wendel, CEO of IdenTrust. “Our customers in the healthcare and government industries have a significant, and often times mandated, need for both physical and logical security. The complexities of managing a different system for physical and logical access lead to processes that are faulty and cumbersome. IGC PKI certificates streamline the entire approach by providing a single credential that secures doors, devices, and software. It's intelligent, efficient, and seamless.”

The Drug Enforcement Agency's Electronic Prescriptions for Controlled Substances (EPCS) program accepts IGC PKI credentials, making the certificates especially of value in the healthcare industry. This is particularly important for practitioners in states such as New York, where deadlines loom for mandated EPCS. IGC PKI certificates also enable Directed Exchange in compliance with the National Health Architecture guidelines.

“HID Global provides a majority of the physical access cards in use at hospitals today. By incorporating IGC PKI certificates onto our ActivID CMS systems, our customers deploy the highest level of security with the most simplified method of delivery,” said Sheila Stromberg, Director of Vertical Markets and Healthcare Solutions with HID Global. “It is the most streamlined, secure, and convenient restricted access solution available today.”

IGC PKI certificates are a critical component of converged physical and logical access credentials that are compliant with Personal Identity Verification Interoperable (PIV-I) and Personal Identity Verification Compatible (PIV-C) standards. With IGC PKI certificates, IdenTrust customers who are government contractors can issue a branded, single credential to their employees for the purpose of physical access to restricted areas and buildings while also using the same credentials to authenticate, securely exchange email and other information, and establish non-repudiation with digital signatures on documents and transactions. Moreover, the IGC certificates on these credentials provide interoperability with the U.S. Government.

“IdenTrust and HID Global set out to provide a comprehensive identity and access management solution for our healthcare and government customers. IGC PKI combined with a compatible CMS is that solution,” said Vishvas Patel, Chief Architect and Vice President of Products at IdenTrust. “Better still, many of our customers are already realizing the cost benefits from the convergence of logical and physical access by using this solution.”

HD-over-coaxial: Ultimate battle for survival by analog manufacturers

HD-over-coaxial: Ultimate battle for survival by analog manufacturers

Editor / Provider: Alf Chang, a&s International | Updated: 10/23/2014 | Article type: Tech Corner

The overarching view in the security industry right now is that IP, which employs a network infrastructure and offers HD video, will one day replace analog solutions, which have defined video surveillance for half a century. For analog players, who are seeing declines in sales and revenue, they must find ways to regain their former dominance in the industry. HD-overcoaxial solutions, which deliver HD video over users' existing coaxial cabling, represent their ultimate battle for survival amidst the IP invasion.

Ever since 960H and HD-SDI emerged in 2011, video surveillance players have been trying to find solutions that enhance the quality of CCTV, which remains the mainstream surveillance technology. Analog cameras are inexpensive and easy to install, and they still dominate the market with 70 to 80 percent of market share. However, IP cameras are threatening the very existence of analog players, who are seeing a steady revenue decline. Against this backdrop, analog players seeking to survive have put intensive efforts into the R&D of high-resolution HD-over-coaxial solutions. HDCVI, HDTVI, ccHDtv, and AHD are the products of those efforts.

Any HD-over-coaxial solution, be it 960H, HD-SDI, HDCVI, HDTVI, AHD, and ccHDtv, must be easy to use over the end user's legacy coaxial cable. HD transmission should be achieved using 5C-2V (RG-59U) or 3C-2V (RG-6) coaxial cable without quality loss, and the traditional distance barrier of 100 to 200 meters must be overcome. The solution must incur no extra cost for installation or upgrade, resist quality loss over a long distance, and enable easy upgrade to megapixel-level HD surveillance. Further, it must be high in quality and competitive in price to gain a stronger foothold in vertical markets. In summary, for a solution to be called HD-over-coaxial, six basic requirements must be met:

1. It must have high video clarity and color separation, as well as high signal filtering, noise reduction, and image restoration capabilities;

2 .As HD-over-coax is claimed as a breakthrough technology, it must be able to transmit signals for a longer distance over existing coaxial cable;

3 .The solution must not be subject to latency, compression-related quality loss, or any compromise to video quality;

4 The backend equipment must be compatible with the 960H format, and future compatibility with analog splitters and matrix systems must be considered;

5. HD-over-coax must be easy to use and operate and allow settings on both frontend and backend equipment;

6. Any solution must have low cost and high quality.

There are HD-over-coaxial DVRs that can support both 960H and 720/1080p. These are called hybrid HD DVRs. There are even HD DVRs that are bolstered by Intersil's decoder chip and the TCP/IP interface to support 960H, 720p/1080p, and IP signals. These are called Tri-brid HD DVRs.

Compare and contrast between solutions
HDCVI, HDTVI, and AHD share one thing in common: as opposed to 960H that uses the CCD sensor, HDCVI, HDTVI, and AHD use the megapixel-level CMOS or Exmor CMOS sensor. The purpose is to capture HD images at the source level. Among manufacturers of CMOS sensors are Sony, Omnivision, Pixelplus, and BYD. The formation of images differs slightly according to brand.

Another similarity as far as components are concerned is the use of an image signal processor (ISP) in conjunction with the sensor. This device ultimately determines the final image displayed by HDCVI, HDTVI, and AHD solutions. The chipset could be integrated into the sensor module or into the transceiver at the backend of the HDCVI, HDTVI, or AHD camera. Image signal processors, whose manufacturers include Sony, Fullhan, Nextchip, and Eyenix, process and enhance images formed by the sensor. As ISPs of different companies are designed differently, they have different ways of handling backlight compensation, WDR noise reduction, and the 3As, namely auto white balance, auto exposure, and auto focus.

One final thing that the solutions have in common is the presence of a signal transceiver, which produces different signal formats based on the technology in question, namely HDCVI, HDTVI, and AHD. Regardless of the technology, these transceivers are similar in that they combine signal augmentation, voltage augmentation, and MCU all in one device and emit signals over different transmission distances. There is also a circuit switch that allows cameras to switch between HD-over-coaxial and CVBS output.

All HD-over-coaxial signals travel through coaxial cables, which can be 5C-2V (RG-59U) or 3C-2V (RG-6) for transmission of between 300 and 500 meters. Among the things that set them apart are the codec engine, which is made by TI, Hisilicon, or Grain Media, and the performance of ISP processing.

Application in verticals
Based on how things look right now, to popularize HDCVI, HDTVI, and AHD and widen their reach in different verticals, it seems manufacturers still have lots of publicity and marketing to do. In fact, I still have doubts over their market acceptance beyond the banking, financial, and retail verticals, as 960H and HD-SDI themselves are still mostly deployed in retail, banking, and education. It is my hope that fiber optic providers can develop and commercialize HD-over-coaxial interfaces, so that HDCVI, HDTVI, and AHD can go beyond small and medium implementations and find their way into city and highway surveillance, which requires HD and real-time video transmission.

Currently, there aren't any credible or authoritative figures on the market acceptance toward HDCVI, HDTVI and AHD. Yet, marketing strategies differ according to manufacturers and their OEM partners. Based on our observation, a lack of understanding of the different solutions is the biggest obstacle that manufacturers need to deal with right now.

Opportunities and future development
HD and intelligence are future development trends that analog players seeking to upgrade their HD products future, advances in CMOS, ISP, and transceivers will cause HD-over-coaxial surveillance to become a norm. Applications in different verticals will also become more noticeable. In security, there is a notion that IP will replace analog. But this will not happen anytime soon, and HD-over-coaxial marks the effort by analog players to at least slow the IP invasion and analog's decline. In the end, maybe there is a purpose for the existence of these solutions.
