5 Tips On Successful Access Control Installation

by ArestePahleviZ on / Animals

 

ASK TO VENDOR
Perhaps you are currently planning to install access control systems only. However, there is no harm in providing time to discuss with vendors to find out their opinions and their solutions about your plan so they understand the things you focus on and your goals for setting up. In addition, by discussing, you will gain new knowledge useful for your needs either for now or in the future.

2. CREATE NOTES / ARCHIVES

Access control systems are growing rapidly and complex. That is why it is important in having archive records for each element in the built system. Starting from card readers to power supply and network cable. Make sure your vendor makes a record that will make it easier for you if at any time there is a problem or when you want to upgrade / update the security system in the future. If possible, request a copy of the note as your archive.

3. PRECIOUS SECURITY FACTORS

If the job is directly related to the network, ask the vendor to propose an alternative solution to keep the unwanted things related to your company’s data.

4. ASSUME ALTERNATIVE USE OF DEVICES

Many are thinking of using an access control software with a standard device for a cost reason rather than investing in a device supported by the firmware. It looks cheaper in the beginning, but when there is a problem, the costs incurred can actually be more expensive. Ask for an alternative technology-based device to your vendor that they think can meet your needs and wants but with an affordable budget.

5. ALWAYS THINK TO AHEAD

Consider the possibility in the future whether you will update or improve your current security system. Is there a possibility in the future that your business will need a more sophisticated or integrated security system? Make sure you always use tools and systems that are easy to combine, add and interact.

What is Access Control?

by ArestePahleviZ on / Animals

Simply Access Control is the ability to control access to a set of resources in a particular area. The term ‘Access Control’ generally refers to systems that can control, monitor and limit the movement of people, assets or vehicles, in, out and around buildings or sites.

The benefits of using an access control system include preventing loss or damage to capital assets and reducing the risk of personal injury to staff and visitors.

Access Control has several principles:

Principle of least privilege

If there is no configuration for the user especially specifically like the individual or group, where the user is located etc, the user should not be able to access that information.

Separation of Duties

Separate the access area to reduce unauthorized data modification to the assets or information of an organization.

Need to Know

This principle is based on the concept of each user who will be given access only to the information they need just to perform the task.

Access control based on model:

Discretionary Access Control

Is a control access model that is set according to the owner’s wishes placed on an ACL (access control list). Using this model is a configuration of granting access based on the user’s needs.

Mandatory Access Control

This model is a highly structured and rigorous model. Users are granted access permissions by classifying the subject (secret, top secret, confidential etc.) and this classification also applies to objects.

Role Based Access Control (RBAC)

Access control is based on user tasks and uses the administrator control to ensure interaction between subject and object.

Ruleset Based Access Control (RSBAC)

Access control is specific to the object to be accessed by the user.

Token Based

Is a list of objects that can be accessed for each user.

 

 

 

Access control based on the technology that is:

Single Sign-On: A technology that allows a user to input a single command to access all primary and secondary network resources.

Kerberos: An authentication protocol that works based on symmetric cryptographic keys used in UNIX systems and becomes the authentication method for windows 2000.

SESAME (Secure European System for Application in a Multi-vendor Environtment): SSO Technology developed for Kerberos enhancements that use cryptographic techniques to protect data exchange and to authenticate subjects to the network.

and the last Access Control based on authentication protocols are:

Password Authentication Portocol (PAP)

It is the most standard authentication form where the authentication uses the username and password transmitted to the system and then matches the username and password in the database. the weakness of this authentication is the username and password sent to the system without any encryption first.

Challenge Handshake Authentication Protocol (CHAP)

Almost the same as the PAP authentication process, the difference is when the username and password are sent to the CHAP system using encryption using MD5 algorithm making it more secure.

How to Choose the Best Hamster Cages

by Ken Joring on / Animals

Hamster cages should be chosen with the right consideration. If you choose the right cage, then your hamster can have a good quality of life.

Right-Sized Cage

How to Choose the Best Hamster Cages

The first step is to choose a cage with the right size. The enclosure should have a size of 18 inches x 13 inches x 25 inches. This is the minimum cage for hamsters. A 13-inch cage can allow you to fit the wheels required by a Syrian hamster. You can buy a bigger cage than that size because a hamster needs room to play, climb, and run. Hamsters want a separate area to store food, sleep, and go to the bathroom. If you have two hamsters, then you need a bigger cage than the cage. There are some paired dwarf hamsters but you can keep the same sex hamster so that the hamster does not breed in the cage. Campbell and Roborovski can be put in one stable. Syrian Hamsters should not be placed in a cage because the hamster is very territorial.

Well Ventilated Cage

The second step is to choose a cage with good ventilation. If you buy a cage with bad ventilation, then this will cause the buildup of ammonia. Ammonia can be toxic to hamsters. Your hamsters may experience respiratory problems because of the ammonia. A bad cage can make your hamster become sick due to bacterial growth. The cage wire is well ventilated but the plastic hamsters and aquarium enclosure have poor ventilation. Perhaps the hamster will find it difficult to breathe because of poor ventilation. If you see that your hamster is not healthy, then you should replace the cage. More petsolutionfriend

Easy to Clean

You can choose a cage that can be cleaned easily. You should clean the cage twice a week. The easiest type of cage to clean is wire cages. The aquarium is a type of cage that should always be cleaned because of poor ventilation. That’s the right step to choose hamster cages.
