What does it take to develop and secure a new format for ID systems on a large university campus? This session will provide a retrospective look at Duke's work with Apple and Blackboard to move student IDs to iOS and watchOS devices. We'll discuss performing security audits of Duke's existing ID systems and disclosing vulnerabilities discovered in those systems to campus leadership. We'll also cover the security architecture of the new Apple Wallet–based system while reviewing lessons learned from our deployment.

Outcomes: Understand the benefits of tokenized virtualized identification/access control/payment systems over traditional solutions in a university environment * Learn how to perform auditing of production systems on your campus * Identify important questions to ask when deploying a new campus card system
