Traditional mechanical locks have no intelligence and limitations on the security they can offer. Within the past five years, new security technology that integrates electronic credentials with mechanical cylinders have become common in many facilities and in some cases have completely replaced mechanical keys. While these credentials may increase certain aspects of security and user options for access control, they have done little to add to the overall security of most locks, whether electro-mechanical or completely electronic-based. With this topic the HGI-Colloquium starts on Oktober 7, 2013. The talk will be held by Marc Tobias in ID 03/445 at Ruhr-University Bochum.
