Hundreds of times each day, in thousands of buildings across the world, electronic access control systems grant authorized personnel access to secure areas, keep unauthorized people out, resolve complicated logic that determines who has access to what, and keep meticulous logs of who goes where. At Reed College and elsewhere, electronic access control systems operate 24/7, ready for a user to swipe a card, get a green light, open a now-unlocked door, and pay only a slight amount of attention to what happens beyond that. This class is for those who wonder how that sequence of events transpires.

Our class will cover the typical applications of electronic access control, the different types of door lock and card reader, standard and nonstandard interfaces between different components, the economics of electronic access control, how access control data are stored, and the various security considerations involved in implementing and maintaining these systems.
