About the OSS Association

Interesting Facts

The primary goal is the promotion and development of global standards for security and access control systems. This includes protocols, components, and coding within the security market as well as the associated hardware and software.

In its first initiative, the OSS Association developed the OSS Standard Offline, which makes it much easier to integrate offline locks into access control systems. The standard is constantly being developed further and Tapkey is also working on it as a contributing member.

More than 50 international companies from the security and access market are currently part of the OSS organization. The OSS Association enables a permanent exchange between security consultants, specialists, and executives from the industry. 

OSS Mobile Access Standard 

The market for mobile credentials is one of the fastest-growing, fuelling the demand for a universal standard. Hence, the OSS Association is working with its members on an OSS Mobile Access Standard. As a mobile credential provider, Tapkey is significantly involved in the design.
