Employee smart cards as an integrated part of identity- and access management

In many enterprises the internal and external staffs already uses smart cards for years as an electronic key for the access to important company areas, buildings and rooms. The approach of the Peak Solution is to integrate this kind of physical access control with the logical IT administration to a holistic authorization management. The basis for this integration is a high performance identity- and access management system. With this system it is possible to extend existing processes and functions for the personal assignment of physical access authorizations by processes and functions for the automated, role based provisioning of user accounts into IT systems and applications. At the same time the staffs only need one multifunctional medium for the identification and authorization against the access control system and the enterprise network. In this way many processes for the administration and use of IT systems and applications are automated and simplified for all involved people. That leads to more security for immaterial enterprise values, cost savings in the administration and higher acceptance for necessary security measures. In the presentation Mr. Kremer shows the main components, functions and processes of such an integrated solution.

Totally Integrated SmartCard Architecture – Combining Industry Specific Requirements with Security Solutions

In der zunehmend vernetzten Welt definieren 5 “C” die grundlegenden Anforderungen für sichere Identitäten: Collaboration, Coopetition, Communication, Confidentiality und Commitment. Aus dieser Motivation heraus sind in den vergangenen Jahren viele Praxisfälle entstanden, die den Einsatz von multifunktionalen Ausweisen adressieren. Ob in Universitäten, der öffentlichen Hand oder bei Unternehmen: Auf dem Kristallisationspunkt einer einzigen Karte wurden Funktionen wie Zeiterfassung, Zutrittskontrolle, Single-Sign-On, Kantinensysteme bis hin zu Geldkartenfunktionen gesammelt. Der Nutzen dieser Lösungen für die Unternehmen und die Anwender steht dabei im Vordergrund, während die technische Infrastrukturen im Hintergrund bleibt.
