Access Control combining economy and the highest level of security
Access Control combining economy and the highest level of security

At IFSEC 2010 Borer demonstrated access control solutions, employing combined Smartcard and Biometric Authentication; with all door equipment including electric release powered over a single CAT5 cable. The combination of biometrics, secure authentication and Power over Ethernet technology provides a very high level of security together with significant lifetime cost savings when compared to alternative systems.Borer's unique smart power delivery and management system using 'Power over Ethernet' (PoE) technology delivers both substantial energy savings and a significant reduction in the cost of installation and subsequent system maintenance. Users can save in the region of £50 per year per door in energy costs alone compared to many alternative systems. In addition the delivery of both power and data over CAT5e structured cabling means that you don't need to install a mains spur at every door, saving between £200- £600 per door on a retrofit. There are also savings to be made on the cost of installation and maintenance, as there is no requirement for a door controller, power supply/battery charger or batteries local to the door.Unlike many other solutions where Biometric details are held on a central database, Borer holds these templates on the card ensuring that cardholders retain possession of their personal data at all times. On enrolment cardholder data together with PIN, biometric template(s) and a digital image are written directly to a DESFire smartcard.Up to 16 separate encrypted files containing cardholder identity, PIN, biometric template(s), digital photograph, qualifications, etc. can be written to the card's memory.  The cardholder's details including biometric template are protected using 3DES or AES encryption ensuring that they cannot be compromised.The card reader supports three factor authentication using combinations of identification including card, card + PIN, card + biometric, card + PIN + biometric.When a card is presented for authentication at the reader; fingerprint template(s) are read from the card and passed to the biometric reader for comparison. Only when a cardholder's identity and the fingerprint read from their card match is access granted.

Following the successful introduction of the combined biometric and smartcard reader Borer are now adding a USB connected smart card reader/writer to their family of Network ready smart card readers. Aesthetically pleasing with a sleek black, desktop wedge housing just 45 mm wide, the Fusion USB proximity card reader connects directly to a PC via the standard USB Interface. It can be used for cardholder enrolment, to write cardholder details including the Cardholder Unique Identity (CHUID), PIN and optionally biometric templates (finger-print or iris). A digital photograph of the cardholder can also be written to the card. The card reader can also be configured as read only to prevent unauthorised data being written to a card. The FUSION USB Card Reader/Writer supports industry standard (ISO 14443A and B - Mifare and DESFire, ISO 7803-4 and ISO 15693) where a card can be used for a variety of applications including access control, attendance recording, travel card and cashless vending. All data written to the card is heavily encrypted using secure 3DES or AES encryption ensuring that the data held on the card can only be accessed by authorised users. Unlike many other solutions where biometric details are held on a central database, Borer holds these templates on the card ensuring that cardholders retain possession of their personal data at all times. Because the cardholders' personal and biometric information are held on a smartcard rather than on a central database or in the reader's memory, the system can support an unlimited number of cardholders and biometric templates. The card reader firmware is field upgradeable so that new firmware can be downloaded to the reader head enabling new applications or generations of smart cards to be supported.
