Smart Card Alliance helps Accelerate the Use of Smart Cards Across Access Control Market


Access Control System

The Smart Card Alliance has had a very successful year in 2016 by accelerating the use and widespread adoption of smart card technology across a variety of sectors, including that of Access Control Systems.

The Alliance is a not-for-profit, multi-industry association working to stimulate the understanding, adoption, use and widespread application of smart card technology across the United States and the world.

Through specific projects such as education programs, market research, advocacy, industry relations and open forums, the Alliance aims to keep its members connected to industry leaders and innovative thought.

The Access Control Council focuses on accelerating the widespread acceptance, use and application of smart card technology to improve security and more accurately verify the identity of individuals seeking access to physical facilities, networks, devices and information systems. Throughout last year, the council educated the industry on further advancing the adoption of high security smart card-based physical access control systems (PACS) with a guide specifications resource, “Guide Specification for Architects and Engineers for Smart Card-based PACS Cards and Readers for Non-government PACS.”

In 2016, the Access Control Council will continue to provide guidance on implementation of smart card technology for access control, particularly focusing on logical and physical access use cases in government.
