The Eyelock PLAI Adapter for the Access Control System

EyeLock continues to extend its EIS (Eyelock Integration Suite) biometric identity management platform by supporting the PSIA PLAI specification.

PLAI is a standards based specification that uses Lightweight Directory Access protocol (LDAP) interface to support a number of logical identity directories, including Microsoft Active Directory ®.

The EyeLock PLAI Adapter allows companies to use an authoritative directory source to ensure that employee data is consistent between one or several Physical Access Control Systems and the Eyelock biometric System. A PLAI solution helps companies manage employee data across multiple security Systems that commonly get introduced during company mergers and acquisitions.

PLAI Adapter of EIS supports the following Capabilities

  • Out of the box integration with any Physical Access Control System which supports PSAI PLAI specification
  • Ability to integrate a single Eyelock access control system simultaneously to multiple PACS backends
  • Ability to deploy a single Eyelock system across multiple buildings that uses PACS of different brands
  • Activate and disable physical access of cardholders based on authoritative directory changes.

PLAI solution is a great way to manage basic security tasks across systems of multiple vendors in enterprise environment. Work continues on expanding PSIA PLAI specification to include temporal access management and on interoperability of biometric systems from different vendors

EyeLock is an active PSIA member and our products are PSIA compliant

The Physical Security Interoperability Alliance (PSIA), incorporated in March 2009, is one of the world’s leading standards body addressing the need for interoperable systems and intelligence/data sharing in the security ecosystem and beyond. The international group is focused on access control and identity management specifications, with the Physical Logical Access Interoperability (PLAI) specification, its most important initiative.

PSIA-compliant systems enable products to interoperate on a plug-and-play basis to share information and intelligence. Such interoperability enhances the power of security systems, reduces product development time and lowers end users’ total cost of ownership. PSIA members include leading manufacturers, consultants, integrators and end-users committed to the adoption of IP-based standards through a truly open and collaborative standards-setting process.
