Securing Assets with RFID
MetadataVis full innførsel
Loss of property is something every company has had to deal with at some point, without proper securing this is a problem that is very hard to get control of. RFID has been available for decades but it has been a technology which has been dormant without very much development. In the last years the interest has grown and new ideas to use it has surfaced. This thesis is set out to present a comprehensive solution proposal for a RFID asset management system. A case will be presented which will be a scarlet thread throughout the paper. We cover areas like RFID technology and standards, tags, readers, infrastructures, security issues and health risks. The solution consists of general guidelines for setting up a RFID system. We present a system design showing the flow of data related to the case scenario, containing both hardware and software layers, spanning from the sensors to the frontend application. Each part of the case is given its own proposal but they are all woven together in the same infrastructure. We also present concept for the frontend application in form of a web portal. The solution we propose is viable solution which covers the problem statement and shows how the case scenario can be set into life. This solution proposal can easily be adapted to similar tasks.
