The United States Navy is currently implementing an improved biometric access control system in an effort to increase security at its bases and ensure that only authorized members of staff are able to access the secure sites, a news report has revealed..
The Navy Installations Command in Washington, D.C. ordered commanders to immediately begin switching over to the Defense Biometrics Identification Systems (DBIDS), which is currently being used for access gates at Naval Submarine Base New London (SUBASE).
DBIDS is a global database that facilitates the distribution of biometric data to guards manning the gates of a Navy base.
The system also notifies guards when an ID card is lost or stolen, flags individuals banned from the base, identifies counterfeit cards, and taps into criminal databases to check if the individual has had any past criminal charges.
Tensor Biometric Access Control Systems – reliable and secure access restriction solutions
Biometric technology uses human physical attributes as locks and keys, making it particularly suitable for access control systems on the buildings of large organisations. Using biometrics for security and identification requires meeting two challenges: they must be cheap enough and sufficiently simple to be used by ordinary users. Furthermore, for enhanced security, these biometric access control systems should combine two or more types of authentication, such as coupling fingerprints with key codes or passwords to provide greater trust that who is logging in is only who is expected to do so.
Tensor Plc, the UK’s number one manufacturer and installer of time and attendance and access control systems, supplies a range of top-range, reliable and affordable biometric access control systems based on Smart Card electronics combined with a biometric fingerprint reader.
