Term Definition
A
access permission / key ACaaS term; the combination of token, resident, lock group, start time and end time in order to verify if - in the end - a device is allowed to open a lock
B  
BlueID Operator A BlueID Operator manages a set of Mobile Devices, Secured Objects and BlueID Tokens. For instance, he can create BlueID Tokens for a Mobile Device in order to grant the Mobile Device access to a Secured Object. The Mobile Device and the Secured Object must belong to the same BlueID Operator.
BlueID Token BlueID Tokens are the digital keys used to execute a command (e.g. "tokn") at an object such as a door or a car. These tokens are digitally signed by the BlueID Trust Center.
BlueID Token Card The BlueID Token Card shall be deemed as BlueID Mobile Device. Each BlueID Mobile Device as well as each BlueID Token Card is assigned to the BlueID Operator Account of the BlueID Trusted Service. The BlueID Trusted Service can issue BlueID Tokens for a BlueID Mobile Device.
BlueID Trust Center The BlueID Trust Center (functioning as a central database) generates digital access authorizations, the so-called BlueID Tokens. Generating a token can be compared to cutting a conventional key. In other words, the Trust Center generates digital keys for the user.
BlueID Trusted Service With the term BlueID Trusted Service all micro services are summarized that run as a BlueID Trust Center.
C  
Command Handler The Command Handler is the part of the Lock Server that does the work after a command execution request was successfully authenticated and authorized.
L  
Lock ACaaS term; the hardware that secures an object (e.g. building, car, room)
Lock Group ACaaS term; a set of locks that usefully can be grouped, e.g. a room may have several locks and it makes sense to grant access to the whole set of locks
Lock Server A Lock Server is the software part that runs on the control unit of a Secured Object.
M  
Mobile Device The Mobile Device, i.e. a smartphone, BlueID Token Card or tablet PC, uses a customer-specific smartphone app which receives the electronic access authorization data ( BlueID Tokens), thus enabling access to the associated Secured Objects. The BlueID Operator can integrate the precise access functionality required in every app. The Mobile Device therefore corresponds to a digital keychain which can be used to hold many different types of keys with different functions. These digital keys are then used to access Secured Objects.
O  
Operator see BlueID Operator
R
Resident ACaaS term; a person, that receives access permissions for his device(s) to open locks; a resident can have several devices and therefore can also be seen as a device group
S  
Secured Object The Secured Object contains a customer-specific control unit which interprets the control commands sent by a smartphone and triggers the corresponding functions. The control unit therefore corresponds to the lock for a digital key and enables access to the Secured Object, e.g. a vehicle or a barrier.
Service Provider Interface from Wikipedia: Service Provider Interface (SPI) is an API intended to be implemented or extended by a third party. It can be used to enable framework extensions and replaceable components.
T  
Tenant ACaaS term; the environment of all entities to be managed
