DIAC, the solution for access control based on use of smart cards
Challenge 3. Identification and access control
Open Call #1 laureate
Currently, Access control systems are mainly based on user identification using Smart cards (with chip) or Contactless cards (RFID). In other cases are also used biometric systems such as fingerprints or PIN codes. But these identification systems have privacy and security issues: user authentication in an access control system, such as loss of the card, data breeches, cloning of cards, disclosure of access PIN to another person, etc. In this context, our solution aims to solve most of the problems that current access control systems have, using innovative solutions and avoiding direct user interaction with access control through de Disposable Identity Framework. A Disposable Identity is a contextual and temporary identity, limited in terms of scope, time, location allowing endusers to show specific and limited information/credentials in order to validate for a service, in our case, access control of the building.
