Access Control means keeping some people out and letting others in. Credentials are the means to identify a person with enough certainty before deciding to let them in or not. They are used as a form of identification and can be physical, virtual or biometric data. The most secure systems use a combination of credentials.
Typically, credentials come in three types:
● Something a person has: an access card, fob, QR code, mobile phone, etc.
● Something a person knows: a PIN code, a password, etc.
● Something a person is: fingerprints, face, etc.
Each of these comes with limitations: a card can be lost or stolen, a password can be shared, biometric data may not be stored legally in some jurisdictions. This is why high security applications may require more than one type of credential used in combination: a card and a PIN code, or a mobile certificate linked to a fingerprint activation for instance.
