SMART Access & Identity 2023 Access Control & Identity Management

NoKey from Secutel Technologies is an enterprise-grade, cloud-based access control solution with no need for access control cards, fingerprint readers, tags, or keys.

The cloud platform ensures end-to-end security and is applicable for access control and key control in commercial applications. Businesses can manage credentials from a central access control system and easily issue mobile keys to mobile phones using Bluetooth technology.

A secure Bluetooth connection can be established from the distance of a few metres, giving it a noticeable edge over traditional RFID card technologies, which have a read range of about a few centimetres.

A secure encrypted link has been developed for the Bluetooth connection between a registered phone and NoKey access points, without the need to pair the devices. Phone-specific certificates are stored and presented from the phone directly to the access point. NOKEY uses a proprietary protocol between the web app and NOKEY access point for additional security and performance. The system can support multiple alarms per access point device to allow for different partitions (or partition sets) to be armed or disarmed. Events can be viewed on both the phone app and the web app.

Mobile access credentials are a secure way for authorised key holders to access a specific location. The registered mobile-enabled employees can enter a specific physical location with a few clicks on their phones. As opposed to printed identity cards and physical documents, mobile access control offers a more convenient experience for both workers and administrators. Users can use fingerprint or facial recognition on smartphones, and/or PINs on any Android (IOS to follow soon) mobile phone with Bluetooth.

The NoKey system has been designed to take all security aspects into account, to ensure private and secure access control. The system’s security relies heavily on the proven security of asymmetric cryptography. Each interface, and functional unit, are protected by utilising proven security cryptographic technologies and principles.
