RFID key management for UK airport.

Deister Electronics (UK) : 08 August, 2007  (Application Story)
UK airport evaluates ProxSafe RFID key management system for monitored, secure key access.
Security within the world's airports, not only for passengers but airport personnel, has never been more necessary than in today's sensitive, terrorist-aware times. The overriding need to ensure the well being of all who use their terminals prompted one airport authority to turn to deister electronic, introducing a proxSafe electronic key management system to a British airport.

Darren Harrod, Director of deister electronic UK is confident that proxSafe is ideally suited to the task, saying: "The first application relates to management of vehicle keys. The airport site alone is huge, and there is a requirement for 24 hours a day, 7 days a week monitored access to the keys of the service vehicles. proxSafe can ensure just that."

proxSafe comprises of an aluminium key cabinet which houses the vehicle keys; the keys are attached to smart keyTags which contain RFID chips similar to those found in proximity access control cards. For security, the keyTags are locked into a proxCylinder, a combination of a proximity reader and a mechanical lock, located in the key cabinet. The cabinet features an automatic roller shutter door for safety, security and convenience, and provides a modular solution for up to 32 sets keys.
As well as monitoring vehicle access, the system features an automated audit trail and integral levels of access control to restrict vehicle use to appropriately qualified and authorised personnel.

Darren Harold added "We are very hopeful that the success of this first system will result in further proxSafe installations at other airports across the UK."
