SicurNet - Lettore badge magneticoSICURNET 3.0 is a software that provides automated management of access to computer stations, enabling Internet usage time control and printing calculation services. The system reads user access credentials entered via username and password or taken from a magnetic badge.

 

If requested, payment of services (Internet navigation, prints, etc.) is carried out by deducting the cost directly from the prepaid card or from the user account stored in the application database.

SICURNET 3.0 compares the information entered with the data stored in its archives and authorizes use of the station and of the related services according to specific rules regarding time limits and use by study and/or research groups. These rules may be fully personalized according to the needs and the organization of the structure hosting the system.

 

Simple and intuitive management
SICURNET provides very easy and intuitive interfaces for system monitoring and management: controlling computer stations, authorizing or disconnecting users, visualizing access over certain periods of time, and accessing the reservation management area and payment management area for the printing service and/or use of the Internet.

 

Data protection and privacy
All operations performed by both users and system management personnel are cryptographed and protected by personal passwords which ensure an adequate level of safety in compliance with the privacy law (Italian Legislative Decree no. 196/2003) and with the “Anti-terrorism Decree” Law no. 155 of 31/07/2005.

Self-Service Payment

PrintNet provides users with a system to pay for printing with a prepaid card or via their account (credit on local database).

Self-service printing payment is directly carried out by users. This reduces timeconsuming work for library staff who no longer need to count prints and handle money.

The prepaid cards may be recharged at a distributor, thus providing an automated system where users are completely independent and free to use the service.
