In modern world, data storage is a major part of assets. Security is only way to protect data assets from thefts. Increase in the technology not only ameliorates the security measures but also meliorates data thefts. To have more security, organizations are concentrating on a place area i.e., data centers, so that no other unauthorized person can enter into security zone. This paper concentrates on how to restrict the access to people in a particular period with having multiple security gateways. As we know there are 4 factors of authentication (password, smart card, biometrics, GPS), In this paper, we discuss another level to add up security in narrowing down to particular time.

Smart Cards


We canít regret just simply loosing data due to lack of security. Having a single level of authentication is not that simple to protect confidential data. To have furthermore security, this paper amplifies the levels of security by adding one more level i.e. fifth level.
