Australian security agencies seek new access control system
The Australia National Intelligence Community (NIC) has issued a tender for a new common access card system, preferably featuring biometric identity verification, to control access to buildings of all 10 of the country’s security and intelligence agencies, which make up the group, a recent news report has been able to suggest.
As per the tender, the security agency group wants to deploy a 2-factor authentication system, possibly combining smart cards and biometric readers.
The service provider will work with NIC agency security and IT security advisors on a detailed design for implementation at all NIC facilities, starting with Canberra facilities for the Australian Signals Directorate (ASD), the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation (ASIO), and the Australian Federal Police (AFP).
The system will be connected through existing intelligence community infrastructure for encrypted credential information to be exchanged between agencies for building access. The system may be classified “secret.”
