HID Global, a Californian lock design company, is developing a digital key software that is adaptable into smartphones. Instead of swiping ID cards, users will be able to use their smartphones to interact with a physical ID card reader. The technology is currently being tested at Arizona State University where students used smartphones instead of campus ID cards. While Near Field Communication (NFC) standards are still being set, with most U.S. buildings lacking this technology, HID Global’s technology relies on short-range wireless technology which has flaws such as security issues. The release date is currently unknown, however HID Global plans to do further testing of this new technology.
