Smartphones als Zugriffsberechtigungen


Nedap MACE is a platform that allows any access control system to use smartphones as access credentials. The platform consists of a cloud based service, readers and apps. MACE apps can receive and contain multiple virtual identity credentials. These credentials are presented to MACE readers using NFC, Bluetooth Low Energy or QR. The MACE Sever accepts imports from 3rd party access control systems. Virtual access  credentials With the MACE app, users are provided with access via a variety of virtual access credentials. Via the app, communication technologies like Bluetooth Low Energy, NFC and optionally QR replace the need of physical access credentials. Security Virtual identity credentials are sent to the phone in a secured way from the MACE Server. The virtual access credentials will be stored safely and secured on the smartphone. It is not possible to duplicate or modify the virtual credential. The wireless communication between the MACE reader and smartphone is secured with encrypted authentication using AES 128 bit keys with diversified keys.

Easy credential management
Issuing MACE credentials is easy and quick, as no physical credentials have to be distributed. Virtual access credentials can be allocated to users in Nedap XS format, Wiegand 26 format or any other format. These credentials are safely sent to the MACE App by the cloud based MACE sever.
Convenient and secure With the introduction of MACE, Nedap responds to the worldwide shift of using smartphones instead of physical cards. Users experience convenient yet secure access while using their own smartphone.
