Identita is set to achieve an industry first in the development of open source radio frequency identification ("RFID") technology for building security and control applications. Identita will use the ALE Server middleware platform, developed by logicAlloy Inc., to add full RFID functionality into its EchoSystem platform and IDPROX application suite. This will be the first use of open source RFID technology in building security applications by Identita. The use of ALE Server technology within IDPROX will lower product development costs and enable a more robust solution using radio frequency scanners.
"When comparing RFID technologies, logicAlloy's open source platform delivered greater flexibility and easier integration at less cost than traditional RFID software solutions," stated Archie Cuke, President of Identita Technologies International SRL. "The ALE Server middleware package will allow us to enhance our IDPROX offering to deliver greater value to our customers around the globe."
As part of the agreements, logicAlloy will provide full modification capabilities for software user interfaces and message transports. logicAlloy will also partner with Identita to provide the highest level of support for customers using RFID solutions. "We are very excited to work with Identita to deliver a stable, high performance solution to the building security and automation market," said Edward Blazer, President of logicAlloy. "ALE Server is an easy to integrate solution that will allow Identita to bring RFID functionality to its product suites."
Identita's IDPROX application suite provides an unbreakable, turn-key identity authentication solution for building management. IDPROX works by providing a full security solution using OTP/magnetic and/or OTP/RF cards across several partitioned layers. Partitions allow a large system to be divided into smaller entities, where each entity can manage its own security needs. Common usages are in multi-tenant buildings where each tenant wishes to manage and monitor his own security or nationwide systems using geographic partitioning. Operators can use a point and click interface to manage specific partitions, allowing monitoring and control capability for a defined space or part of the system.
ALE Server is the industry's first open source, EPCglobal compliant middleware for application level event processing. Whenever an RFID tag passes near an active reader, the reader will detect the tag and log the event into an internal cache. ALE Server will then collect, store and filter reader data, transforming it into meaningful information. As an open source product, the software can be freely downloaded for non-commercial use, allowing companies like Identita to try it for free in their development environments.
With research and development facilities in Canada and its international offices in Barbados, Identita creates identity management solutions involving hardware tokens and client server application software. Identita's EchoSystem platform is a multi-token aware identity management back-end with a complete suite of application modules to meet the requirements of virtually all verticals. Identita has developed unique proprietary handshake protocols to counter phishing, man-in-the-middle and man-in-the-browser attacks, using Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) and digital certificates. Identita currently manufactures an acoustic one-time password (OTP) smart card, an OTP display card (embedded, flexible display on the front of the smart card), and will soon release biometric and GPS cards. Identita's solution goes beyond traditional smart card implementation. Its credit card-sized format enables the inclusion of other technologies such as magnetic stripe, proximity chips, EMV chips, bar code, RFID and picture ID.
