Moscow-City, a mixed-use development in Moscow, Russia, started in 1994 as a revitalization of an industrial area and quarry. One feature is that it includes some of the tallest skyscrapers in Europe, six over 990-ft tall and one, the Federation Tower, more than 100 stories high (1,227-ft), the second highest in Russia.

Formally known as the Moscow International Business Center, the complex of residential, commercial, and entertainment facilities needed a security and parking identification method that was itself secure. The answer was a contactless RFID (radio-frequency identification) system from Feig Electronic, Weilburg, Germany. The parking control uses a long-range, passive UHF RFID implementing UCODE DNA, developed by NXP Semiconductors.

UCODE DNA is considered identification technology that can match the physical protection with the cybersecurity necessary to protect entrances from unauthorized access. Feig vehicle access control RFID readers incorporate advanced secure key storage elements, supporting various methods for secure key injection.

ISBC Group of Russia did the implementation to enable authorized vehicle entry into areas reserved for private residential use or corporate tenants, while also allowing the availability of temporary, fee-based visitor parking. Both the tag and reader must go through an authentication procedure before the reader will validate the data from the tag, which is transmitted wirelessly. This level of authentication is typically used in the most secure data communication networks.
