System Description

 

Electronic Seal SSL1

Practical application

The SSL1 miniature electronic seal is a simple to use device that allows you to determine if - and when – access took place  to protected objects  (rooms, filing cabinets, safes, drawers, server-rooms, switch rooms, etc.). SSL1 is the modern alternative to conventional seals and is recommended particularly in those applications with frequent opening/closing or for higher levels of safety of protected assets.
In comparison with conventional seals it is easier to use and is virtually maintenance free.
Characteristics 
-     Non-volatile memory storing the last 1344 events (opening,      closing and other important information). 
-     Identification of authorized users. 
-     Built-in, precise quartz clock.
-     Interfaces with SEVEN GUARD event recorders/data    loggers.
-     Free of charge software in five languages.
-     Clear reporting of events for any period.
-     Archiving of events in a SQL database.
-     Ability to automatically send events by email.
-     Powered by cheap, exchangeable lithium battery.
-     Designed to be capable of hanging on its own security cable
-     Tamper-proof casing
-     Easy opening/closing of the seal’s security cable
-     Visual and audible status notification.
-     Designed to work in areas with no condensation 
-     Falsification of seals much more difficult than for even the best traditional seals.

Electronic seals - luxury or necessity?

Practically all institutions, and even some private individuals, must find effective methods of protecting valuable resources (information, data, documents, items, etc.) before access by unauthorized persons, or at least find a reliable way of determining whether such access has taken place which could lead to unauthorized copying, theft, use or damage to these resources.

Theoretically, this can be partially achieved by using CCTV, alarm systems and traditional access control. However, in the case of individual safes, cabinets, drawers and similar spaces, in which important resources are stored, such a solution is ineffective. The increase in complexity of these systems, when trying to cover many small objects, leads to a sharp rise in price, operating cost, rate of failure, complexity and the vast quantity of records which are difficult, if not impossible, to analyze.

Such solutions have one very significant defect: as a result of their "centralization", the failure (or deliberate damage) of the CPU or critical circuits, affects the protection of all subordinate zones, rendering it virtually impossible to determine whether at that time there was an unauthorized access to protected resources. Also in the case of the “acquisition” of codes - or the cloning of IDs for appropriately high level privileges - by unauthorized individuals,  centralized systems become compromised and thus ineffective.

How, therefore, to deal with ensuring the integrity of valuable content?

In antiquity various ways were used of sealing content (such as cylindrical seals from Mesopotamia – see figure).
Even today, similar solutions are often used which rely on affixing a unique mark to a substrate made of paper, plastic, metal or plasticine / modeling paste.
Unfortunately, over the centuries, the world has changed a lot, and the level of widely available technologies is quite different.
In the 21st century, the creation of a faithful copy of a traditional seal presents no problem, particularly considering that mass-produced models of these seals are cheap and widely available, and that the various techniques of printing, embossing and engraving on any surface are now at everyone’s fingertips.
No one, in normal use, is able to determine whether the seal they are looking at is an original or an exact copy - and of course there are numerous known methods of opening "without any trace” many types of seals, often using simple tools.  

In most cases, without conducting specialist examination, it is not possible to determine whether there was definitely no unauthorized access to a protected area. Of course, for different types of seals, the confidence level is different. In the case of seals made from modeling pastes/plasticine confidence is practically ZERO, because making a faithful copy of the reference plate of any such "seal" can be done in a few minutes, using publically available materials.

It happens that cleaning and security staff have virtually unlimited access to the most sensitive or important items and information. For example where, in order to do their job, they require access to protected areas – and the only thing preventing them exploiting their position are locks "protected" by/with a "seal" of modelling paste/plasticine -  it is only their good will and honesty that prevents them from exploiting the trust placed in them, knowing that nobody will notice any infringement.

Is there any better solution?

Yes -  electronic seals. Although electronic seals have been produced for decades, these devices generally have, up to now, had three major defects: they are large, expensive and complicated to operate.
SYSTEM 7, after many years of research and development, have introduced onto the European market electronic seals which are small, cheap and easy to use.
These seals ensure the same confidence level of non-infringement as the best traditional seals,  and in addition allow the recording of opening / closing, signal an infringement optically and acoustically, have a unique number and name, determined by the user, and are practically impossible to forge.  


Currently, there are two models of SYSTEM7 seal:

1. SSL1 - electronic threaded seal
This replaces traditional seals equipped  with cable mounted outside protected spaces (e.g. "seals" made from  modeling pastes/plasticine). The small size and ingenious design means it can be suspended on its own cable without fear of accidental opening.

2. SSL2 - electronic seal with magnetic sensor.
The ideal solution for the protection of areas in which the seal is mounted inside, and accessible only after opening (e.g. inside strongboxes, cabinets, safes, drawers, appliances, doors to rooms, etc.).

SGSL seals are powered by small, cheap lithium batteries (battery has a life of around 1 year) and have non-volatile memory of 1344 events. Dimensions of seal: 21mm x 40mm x 50mm, weight approx 50g, working temperature from -25 °C to +60 °C.

Authorized users (up to 235 users per device) may authenticate into the seal using small, personal identifiers (pendants) with a unique digital code.
These seals are cheaper to operate than even medium-quality traditional seals, and in the case of closing/opening, more frequently than once per day - MUCH cheaper!

Events recorded in the memory of the seals can be transferred to a computer in two ways:

1. Connecting the seal to computer with an appropriate adapter.

2. Using a portable data recorder/data logger (SG3MAIN, SG3DUO, SGsoftMAIN, SGsoft DUO, SGmini MAIN). In this case, events from the seal memory are first copied to the memory of the data recorder/data logger, and then from the memory of the data recorder/data logger to a computer.

Along with the seals, a computer program (SGwin) is supplied, allowing for the archiving of the data read from the seals, transmission of this data (via the Internet) to other surveillance centers, and the production of reports together with information on authorized or unauthorized breaches of protected zones and other reported incidents/events.  

SSL seals & SG3 event recorders are elements of the 12 year old universal control system - SEVEN GUARD. This system also allows fast, effective and fully objective monitoring of service workers, security staff, maintenance personnel, guards, drivers and any other employees required to be in designated areas at certain times.
The idea of the system is very simple. Employees whose work we want to monitor we supply a small, inexpensive portable recorder (roughly the size of a small mobile phone) and in areas where they will carry out their duties, we install small, non-powered checkpoints.

An employee who enters this area touches their recorder to the checkpoint and the recorder records his presence (along with the date and exact time). You can also record the date and time they leave this area through a further event in the same, or another, checkpoint.

The work required by the staff supervisor is small, and the results accurate and completely objective.
Every now and then, supervisors simply read records from the memory of recorders. The system software allows for the quick creation of standard schedules defining, for example, where and at what time on what dates they should be present in this area. 

If such schedules are defined, the rest of the work is performed by computer. There is no need to analyze many thousands of records and to search for cases where someone was in an area at the wrong time, or was not in an area at the specified time - a detailed report of non-compliance with the defined schedule will be automatically generated.
