Admission Control

Admission Control System by IoTMATION BMS

IoTMATION offers an IoT integrated, automated, Admission Control System from IoTMATE. Due to the integration with the IoTMATION platform, the IoTMATION Access Control System becomes an extension of the overall automation scheme. The IoTMATION Admission Control System is built on three primary components.

Identity

First, the identity of a user is established. A large number of methods can be used to establish the identity. Some of the commonly used methods are physical identification methods like RFID, or a biometric identification method like finger print reader, or a digital identity like a token generated on a mobile application.

Credential

The IoTMATION framework provides an easy method to manage credentials. The association of credentials with the identity can be done using the user interface. The administrator can group define the access privileges for a credential, update it, update an association of credential, revoke a credential. All this can be done easily using the IoTMATION user interface.

Access Policy

Access policies define the rules that govern an access based on the credential. The access policies can also incorporate multiple dynamic events along with a credential. Some such events can be number of times access has been given to a particular credential, time of day etc. A multi factor authentication can easily be configured through the use of the access policies.

User Identity

The IoTMATION Admission control can handle establishment of user identity through several means. The flexibility of using several hardware like RFID, biometric, mobile application based identification allows the users to select the hardware of their choice as well as to retrofit IoTMATION based access control with pre-existing systems.

Access Credentials in IoTMATION Admission Control System

The IoTMATION Admission Control System provides a simple interface for managing access credentials, and to define access control rules. The IoTMATION platform rules can be highly dynamic and can act on several triggers. One can easily create a lock with multi-factor authentication (MFA) by creating an appropriate rule. For example, the access to a door can be controlled via RFID access. Once the RFID is successfully identified against a user, an OTP can be sent to the registered mobile number. The final access is provided on validation of the OTP successfully.

Access Policies

Once the credentials have been established, the configured access policies are run to determine if the requested access is to granted or denied. IoTMATION supports highly flexible access policies which can be easily configured by the operator through the IoTMATION mobile application dashboard. The access policies can use user credentials along with other parameters like time of the day, number of requests during a specified period using the same credential or the credential group, multi-factor-authentication tokens like OTP etc.
