Diebold Delivers Customized Security Solution to National Defense University

Diebold consults from design to implementation using holistic security approach.

NORTH CANTON, Ohio, May 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Diebold, Incorporated (NYSE: DBD), a global leader in providing integrated self-service delivery and security systems and services, delivered a comprehensive security system for the Lincoln Hall building on the campus of the National Defense University (NDU) in Washington, D.C.

As a certified General Services Administration Specialty Item Number (SIN) 132-62 vendor and approved supplier of Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 201-compliant products and services, Diebold led the project's design and implementation in conjunction with NDU engineers, the prime contractor, building architects, engineers and the Army Corps of Engineers. The overall solution involved a complement of electronic security systems, including advanced card readers, high definition cameras and their integration into a custom console and security monitoring center.

"The Lincoln Hall project offers a prime example of how Diebold takes highly sophisticated security technology and know-how and puts it into action," said V. John Stroia, vice president, government solutions, Diebold Security. "We took a proactive design approach to solve unique challenges related to the introduction of state-of-the-art equipment while ensuring its interoperability with legacy components throughout the campus."

A particular challenge that Diebold solved required an understanding of how the existing and next-generation common access card (CAC-NG) credential would impact the new system. Diebold future-proofed the blueprint for the access system to ensure compatibility with current and forthcoming security card technology, including the more stringent FIPS 201 and Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 (HSPD-12) government standards in personal identity verification for federal employees and contractors. Diebold, in collaboration with the manufacturer, engineered a solution based on a contactless programming card and reader pair with the ability to flash information to the reader's operating system, thus updating its configuration parameters without direct contact. Upgrading the readers to the latest technology without removal or replacement saved NDU both time and money, and prepares it for migration to the next generation CAC and/or other technologies simultaneously.

Lincoln Hall's security system includes a range of Diebold solutions, including high-definition Internet protocol (IP) cameras with edge-based video recording devices. This enables the facility to maximize available storage space for communications servers while maintaining a central location for video to be transmitted, viewed and analyzed from cameras in multiple buildings.

In addition, Diebold developed a dedicated and redundant fiber optic ring communications network to improve the robustness, reliability and operational integrity of the system. It provides a circular information flow that will not be interrupted in the event of a break in the communications line losing the primary network connectivity path.

NDU is a graduate-level university situated within Fort McNair that provides joint professional military education under the direction of the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. The university has a distinguished history of preparing future leaders of the armed forces, the U.S. Department of State and other U.S. government agencies. Lincoln Hall is a 250,000 square-foot facility containing primarily classroom, meeting and conference space for the university.

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Smart cities have the potential to change our lives at so many levels for citizens: less pollution, reduced parking obstacles, better health, education and more energy savings.

We are given a desktop platform with Java 8 or Java 9 installed and seek to find a way to deploy high-performance Java applications that use Java 3D and/or Jogl without having to run an installer. We are subject to the constraint that the applications be signed and deployed so that they can be run in a trusted environment (i.e., outside of the sandbox). Further, we seek to do this in a way that does not depend on bundling a JRE with our applications, as this makes downloads and installations rat...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
