One such solution provides a three-step authentication process that is ideally suited for government applications. The software extracts cardholder data from a smart card, validates the cardholder's PIN, and completes on-card biometrics matching. Digital certificates are verified by security personnel using the issuer's certificate authority, Cards are validated using appropriate challenge-response protocols in order to identify forged or cloned cards.

Any unauthorized access attempts or movements in predefined fields of view will trigger an alarm that will be captured by the cameras and then recorded onto the Digital Video Management System.
