Description

Understanding Access Rules

  • Access Rules are the types of access control methods that can be used with IXM devices. Depending on the IXM Device and the model, administrators can assign the following access rules individually or in combination:
    • Biometric access i.e. fingerprints, finger vein or face recognition
    • Card access i.e. access cards
    • PIN access i.e. a 4-digit code
    • ID access i.e. the user ID
  • Administrators can assign access rules to the user during user registration.
  • Administrators can assign any access rule from the rules listed. However, the device needs to support the selected access rule. For example – if the user is assigned “Card + Biometric Strict” and the device model is FP1 (biometric only); access to the user will be denied.
  • The “Private Authentication” feature (found under CONFIG tile -> Biometric app) describes which access rule will be used during authentication. If this status is ‘ACTIVE’ then the User Access rule will be applied. If the administrator wants to mandate all users to follow the same access rules, then toggle this feature to ‘INACTIVE’. Depending on the source of Identification/Verification, Device (Global) access rule will be applied during authentication.
  • User Access rule is the access rule assigned to individual users during registeration.
  • Device Access rule is the access rule that applies to the installed device and is independent of the user access rule. If the “Private Authentication” feature is INACTIVE, then the device access rules will be applicable to all users, regardless of the access rules assigned to the user.

Device Modes (Authentication Modes)

All IXM biometric devices support identification (1: N) and verification (1: 1) modes. These modes are used to specify the operating mode of the device.

  • When the device is in identification mode, it will allow verification from card or ID.
  • When the device is in verification mode, identification will not work.

Biometric Access: Biometric Access rule will be applied when authentication is initiated by placing a finger on the sensor (identification).

Card Access: Card access rule will be applied only when authentication is initiated by card (verification).

ID Access: ID access rule will be applied only when authentication is initiated by the touchscreen keypad (verification).

Applicable Access Rules for each IXM Device Model

Each IXM Device and model supports different access rules. Moreover, different models support different access cards. Please refer to the brochure for the cards supported by each model. The table below describes the access rules supported by each device.
