Melding IT, physical security

Computer Associates, Gemplus and several other companies announced the formation of a group that is working on open specifications and best practices for integrating information security and physical security.

Two of CA's products, which are in beta, already support the group's specs, and the members hope that other large industry players, such as IBM, will begin adopting the specs as well.

One likely candidate is the Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards.

The Open Security Exchange grew out of CA's own efforts to integrate the management of network and physical security within large enterprises.
