The previous system for student ID card check-in was very cumbersome and time-consuming for professors and students. One of the key reasons that make the check-in process so complex, is for professors to cross-check the students’ photos with their ID cards to avoid impersonation. In addition, the pandemic switched the teaching environment from physical classrooms to virtual remote classrooms, making it more complicated for professors to check student attendance. In addition, Students have to log in to University systems and Applications with multiple accounts (ID/Passwords), login credentials hacking and management are also a headache for both students and IT administrators.
After considering various options, the University opted for “ATKey.Card” – fingerprint-enabled card-type passkey, and build the new attendance check system with the FIDO2 server “AT.AuthFi”. This decision was based on several factors such as:
Our solution ensures the attendance check process is simple and un-cheatable, student attendance reports (absent, arriving late, etc.) can be generated automatically and correctly. The readiness APIs and sample codes make it easy to onboard AT.AuthFi (FIDO2 server), and make University web services login passwordless. Remembering passwords and being afraid of data leakage no longer be issues for students and professors.
