IOT Technologies for Security Purposes

Access control, time and attendance, payment or ticketing - in almost all areas of life and work, contactless solutions are used where the highest security standards must be applied. Security, as presented by the experts in this field, creates the necessary transparency in the implementation of authentication applications of all types.

In a digital age with an increasing need for digitisation and digitalisation, security is at the centre of this development. The need to continuously update security protocols and design new ways of security and encryption methods is ever-present. The transfer of data in a network or across networks involves the risk of misuse or loss of data.

Encryption and Protection

Encoded communication is a necessary part of cyber security to protect a business against data theft. But not only the communication in a business, across businesses or in the IoT needs to be secure. In retail or online, payments (e. g. via smartphone) cannot be open to misuse and need to be protected. Banking applications can be protected via password, PIN, or code.

Access Control

With RFID or ORM like biometrics or QR code, access and distribution can be managed and controlled or people can be indentified. In the health care sector, self-service station (for medication or laundry) for patients guarantee correct and automated supply, 24/7 availability, and documentation. In pharmaceutics, NFC tags on medication packages can detect tampering.


Based on NXP’s ultra-wideband technology and the payment expertise of ING, the pilot aims to make peer-to-peer payments more intuitive and seamless.

Whether in production or in hospitals, an authentication solution based on RFID protects machines, devices and data from unauthorized access.
