At the recent CONSULT conference in Nashville, I had the opportunity to sit in on a lively discussion on the use of the Security Industry Association (SIA)’s Open Supervised Device Protocol (OSDP) standard for access control.
The underlying message of the session—which was moderated by cybersecurity consultant Rodney Thayer and included Scott Lindley of Farpointe Data, Dean Forchas of HID, David Weinbach of LenelS2 and Steve DeArruda of consultant Business Protection Specialists—was simply this: if you are not aware of and actively specifying OSDP, you are potentially doing your clients a disservice.
