OSS Secure ID

The second OSS standard Secure ID - Simple. Secure.

The OSS Association has developed a second standard.

It's called Secure ID (SID) and what's special about it is that it's so simple. So simple and so easy that it raises the question: why hasn't it been around for a long time? Counter question: Why don't all car rims have the same five holes? The simple answer: If they had it, the owner could keep the rims after selling their old car and reuse them for the new vehicle. Since this standard does not exist, the customer will most likely have to buy new rims. This does not make economic sense, at least not from the customer's perspective.

The OSS stays out of the production of car rims. Instead, we write standards for ID cards. However, the principle is the same. Our standard, however, is simply about how to get a badge number on a badge. As we do, end customers benefit from the fact that they do not have to have their IDs adjusted again when changing suppliers. That saves money.

In addition to the cost argument, enhanced security speaks for the new, second OSS standard. Our first standard was an application with which data was read AND written. IT security experts gave us the idea of ​​separating the two for more security.

For those who want maximum security, we have found a way with the OSS standard Secure ID to separate reading and writing of data. The new application first reads the ID number from SID and only then accesses the standard offline application. This ensures maximum security that the correct ID number has been read ...

The secure ID number can of course also be used for other applications such as follow me printing, time&attendance, parking, key management etc.
