Diebold provides access control system for National Defense University

Zack Martin   ||   May 19, 2009  ||   , ,

Diebold Inc. announced the delivery of a security system for the Lincoln Hall building on the campus of the National Defense University (NDU) in Washington.

A challenge with the access control system was how existing and next-generation Common Access Card credential would impact the new system. Diebold future-proofed the blueprint for the access system to ensure compatibility with current and forthcoming security card technology, including the more stringent FIPS 201 standards.

Diebold, in collaboration with the manufacturer, engineered a solution based on a contactless programming card and reader pair with the ability to flash information to the reader’s operating system, thus updating its configuration parameters without direct contact. Upgrading the readers to the latest technology without removal or replacement saved NDU time and money, and prepares it for migration to the next generation Common Access Card and/or other technologies simultaneously.

Lincoln Hall’s security system includes a range of Diebold solutions, including high-definition Internet protocol (IP) cameras with edge-based video recording devices. This enables the facility to maximize available storage space for communications servers while maintaining a central location for video to be transmitted, viewed and analyzed from cameras in multiple buildings.

NDU is a graduate-level university situated within Fort McNair that provides joint professional military education under the direction of the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Lincoln Hall is a 250,000 square-foot facility containing primarily classroom, meeting and conference space for the university.
