Did You Know?
125kHz Prox has been Compromised!
In an effort to keep your facility secure it is important to periodically review security policies, practices, and technology. It has come to the public's attention that 125kHz Proximity Readers and Cards have become compromised. This long lasting and simple technology has finally fallen to compromise by those that would pick your lock to do you harm or those that simply want to show you that your lock can be picked. Regardless, it is now in every one's best interest to replace this older technology with something that is more secure. Below is a Link to some recommendations as to how you can improve your security by implementing newer technology.
Incident Response Plan
Emergency Response for Educational Facilities
Schools and Campuses need an Incident Response Plan. DSX can provide an integrated solution that facilitates the activation, action and notification of emergencies by locking down doors and altering access privileges while notifying staff and authorities. Proactive crisis planning is critical but, having a plan is not enough. Taking action quickly with clear communication must also be a requirement.
DSX can quickly reconfigure the access control system's operation and notify personnel of the emergency while initiating the appropriate action such as locking doors. WinDSX is a highly Integral solution that can be connected to other systems for a layered and well rounded approach.
Always involve your local authorities such as law enforcement and fire safety personnel to make sure your plan is compliant with local regulations. Here is a guide to performing a Lockdown. Use this to consider and even implement your plan.

New Password Encryption
WinDSX has upgraded operator passwords to use AES-256 Encryption. Transparent to the user, this upgrade to password encryption makes the system more secure without making it more difficult. AES-256 Communications Encryption can be added to any system running New Software and Controller Firmware 3181 or higher. No Charge for this Encryption but it does require the system Softkey to be sent to DSX Technical Support for enabling.
The New DSX-LAN Module has now been released and is ready for shipment. The module can be configured over the network with a DHCP discovery program and Webpage interface or through a serial connection. The module can be used with PC Master, L85, WinDSX, Redundant Comm Servers, and SIO.
The New DSX-LAN Module has User and Administrative Passwords with configurable complexity using up to 19 characters. The Module allows the programming of the Gateway, Subnet, and DNS for Local and Wide Area Network configurations and can be connected to a Gigabit Switch.
