Performance and energy efficiency have long been widely accepted as key criteria for evaluating server systems. Lately, however, a third category has emerged: with more and more organizations being hard pressed for floor space, density – i.e. the ability to pack an unprecedented amount of high-end components into the smallest possible enclosure – is about to become an equally important factor.
Identification and authentication solutions have been a cornerstone of digital technology since the first electronic access control systems emerged in the 1970s. Today, these systems are practically ubiquitous: airlines, banks, hospitals, hotels and state agencies will only serve people who are able to identify themselves and prove their status as a customer, employee, patient, guest or citizen.
