Summary

This page aims to scope out the different projects that work together as part of the Access Control Network. The main components are:

  • ACNode - The clients that sit on the tool that is being controlled and manage physical access by reading the rfid card.
  • ACServer - The server stores the authentication information and pulls membership information from Turing over JSON and stores is at a SQLite DB
  • Membership DB - Secured storage of membership data.

AC Server

PHP Code Igniter implementation started by mentar located here here

Currently running on Babbage for dev purposes, will be run on a secure box after.

Running

Go to a shell on babbage.

Make sure it's not already running by:

sudo lsof -i :1234

Then:

cd /var/www/ACNode

./start.sh

Testing

Currently only test tool active (node 1).

As per Sol's ACNode rest spec:

curl -H 'Accept: text/plain' http://babbage:1234/1/sync/

curl -H 'Accept: text/plain' http://babbage:1234/1/card/04FF7922E40080

Membership DB

Running on Turing VM slice (hosted outside the space as it has personal data). Accessed in JSON format.
