Two smart CyberKey cabinets offer a new level of accountability and key control. Built by Videx of Corvallis, Oregon, the rugged metal housings protect keys that are not programmed. An employee uses an RFID card or PIN to open the cabinet and again to request that a key be programmed and released. The released key contains the access permissions required. Any CyberKey that has been docked in a cabinet cannot be forcibly removed without destroying the key. When the key is returned to the cabinet, an audit trail of the key and lock activity is downloaded to the software. After the cabinet reports to the software, the key returns to an unprogrammed state.
