Abstract

Several measures had been taken to ameliorate security technology at campuses using latest technologies available. Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology in campuses is mainly used for recording attendance which is further extended to activity monitoring and individual security. This research paper proposes a framework of RFID integrated solution for enhanced campus IT security including human, campus IT asset traceability, student’s valuables tracking, exam papers leakage security and issue authentic certificates. In order to meet the growing requirements of campus security system, the use of RFID technology in existing campus application has to be expanded where RFID technology certain performance issues may arise. Designing RFID enabled scalable and reliable applications is difficult due to managing and handling data banks generated by RFID tags, which further requires enhancing the entire IT infrastructure, inconvenient for Small and Medium Enterprise (SME) such as academic institutions having budgetary constraints. Therefore in order to take RFID campus implementation to the next level and create internet of things based applications, campuses have to embrace the concept of using the leading edge technology of cloud computing due to its both technological and economic benefits for supporting RFID technology.
