OSDP Access Control Guide

By Brian Rhodes, Published on Jun 04, 2019

Access control readers and controllers need to communicate. While Wiegand has been the de facto standard for decades, OSDP aims to solve major problems of Wiegand.

In particular, OSDP's benefits:

  • Bidirectional Communication, Including reader displayed feedback
  • Standardized biometrics integration with access systems
  • Handling large amounts Of credential data
  • OSDP's 'Secure Channel' version supporting data encryption

However, the protocol has several significant issues impacting adoption, including:

  • Unclear OSDP versions and profile definition
  • Lack of OSDP conformance checking
  • Vendors claiming only 'OSDP Support' is not enough
  • No Official OSDP 'Conformant Products' directory

This report examines those issues and more basic details including:

  • What OSDP Does
  • Why OSDP Is Needed
  • How OSDP is Organized
  • What OSDP's Profiles Are
  • Performance and Wiring differences between Wiegand and OSDP
  • What 'Secure Channel' means for OSDP
