We are changing the way that data is encoded on the RUconnection ID card, as well as the way that ID card data is passed between systems.
A new, random number will be introduced to enhance the security of the RUconnection ID card. RCNs will be unique to a given card, and will change completely if a card is lost or replaced. Systems that use the ID card will need to translate from the RCN to identify the person in question.
We are also evaluating longer-term enhancements to the ID card technology stack.
