Introducing Active ID's

The unique component in our system is what we call the Active ID. The Active ID is a record in our application that represents and is associated to a person in your organization. You only pay for this person when it has an active. For example, you can have 10,000 Active ID records but only 1,000 are active. Therefore you only pay your subscription based on your Active IDs. With our scalable solution we offer any size company enterprise functionality. With subscription plans starting at $ 80.00 dollar per month you get features and functionality such as:

  • - Centralized ID Management SaaS Solution
  • - Easy Deployment in the Cloud
  • - Life Cycle Tracking and Card Management
  • - Always Work with the Latest Versions at No Additional Cost

Cloud Architecture

CardExchange® Cloud Suite is hosted on Microsoft Azure™ and is based on the structure as you can see in the presented diagram. The processes of authentication and data are running at your hosting location of your choice and all these services are offered via a single point of access called the Application Gateway.

The Application Gateway receives the client request and directs them through the Web Application Firewall (WAF) to the correct service on Azure™. The Web Application Firewall analyzes the content and takes care that suspicious requests are being blocked, to avoid attaches that could compromise the system.

Transparant Data Encryption

Transparant Data Encryption (TDE) is used to encrypt SQL Server, Azure™ SQL Database, and Azure SQL Data Warehouse data files in real time, using a Database Encryption Key (DEK), which is stored in the database boot record for availability during recovery. TDE protects data and log files, using AES and Triple Data Encryption Standard (3DES) encryption algorithms. Encryption of the database file is performed at the page level. The pages in an encrypted database are encrypted before they are written to disk and are decrypted when they’re read into memory.

Encryption Of Data In Transit

Microsoft® uses the Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol to protect data when it’s traveling between the cloud services and customers. Microsoft datacenters negotiate a TLS connection with client systems that connect to Azure services. TLS provides strong authentication, message privacy, and integrity (enabling detection of message tampering, interception, and forgery), interoperability, algorithm flexibility, and ease of deployment and use.

CardExchange® Cloud Suite only supports Https connections using TLS1.2 or higher.

Powerful Back Office Reporting

One of the most important aspects of an ID enrollment is the communication with the back offices inside your organization. Think about HR systems or Student Registration system that contain valid information needed for the enrollment. The business logic will determine when an ID can be enrolled to a employee or student, but when it is enrolled, the back offices need to be informed when the ID becomes active. Connectors are a key element in this as they inform the back offices about the status of the ID. Is it active, cancelled, lost, or stolen, etc. In any of these situations, back offices like access control, vending, library, etc., need to be properly informed.

Our cloud connectors are also generally a .NET Core web API that will run in Azure, although these can run locally as well if needed using IIS or as a Windows service for example. We have available Hangfire for scheduling, queueing jobs and monitoring. CardExchange® Cloud Suite offers two types of connectors: Incoming and Outgoing connectors. New connectors are constantly being developed and made available via our CardExchange® Cloud Portal.

Incoming Connectors

The incoming connector can communicate directly with other systems using their API, preferably this would be a REST API made available by the system vendor. Incoming connectors can also communicate directly with a database hosted in the cloud, or local databases.

The incoming connector initiates the communication and reads from the source system, it then adds or updates the records in Controller based on the business logic defined.

All communication with the incoming connector goes through the Web Application Firewall.


Key Management With Key Vault

Azure™ Key Vault helps safeguard cryptographic keys and secrets that cloud applications and services use.

Without proper protection and management of the keys, encryption is rendered useless. Key Vault is the Microsoft-recommended solution for managing and controlling access to encryption keys used by cloud services. Permissions to access keys can be assigned to services or to users through Azure™ Active Directory accounts.

Key Vault relieves organizations of the need to configure, patch, and maintain hardware security modules (HSMs) and key management software. When you use Key Vault, you maintain control. Microsoft never sees your keys, and applications don’t have direct access to them. You can also import or generate keys in HSMs.

Development Focussed on Flexibility

To be able to respond quickly to specific customer needs and offer high speed, secure applications, the development platforms for CardExchange® Cloud Suite have been specifically choosen to do the job.

If it comes the front end development, the Controller CMS and The Stand are built in Angular. As Angular is a JavaScript framework and Controller CMS and The Stand are single-page applications, the client computer downloads the front-end code to the browser when initially accessing Controller CMS or Stand. From then on, the browser communicates directly with the back end.

The CardExchange® Cloud Suite back end The back end is a .NET Core web API. It translates requests from the client into SQL queries and sends them to the database, after which the results are sent back to the client in an appropriate format.

Outgoing Connectors

Our outgoing connectors are connections between the back end and external systems that send data to those systems in reaction on actions performed by the end user.

Outgoing connectors should preferably use web hooks, these can be configured based on a change to the persons ID card status in Controller CMS. This means that the webhook can be sent, for example, when a ID or card is activated or blocked. The connector can then send a request via the API to get the full data for that specific record or action which greatly reduces network traffic and offers a real-time experience.
