This is currently a standard situation where id-cards or other tokens give access to one’s possessions or to one’s work and private spaces. While such a situation will remain, increasingly objects will be connected to each other in the internet of things, as it is called nowadays.

And when we access, for instance, our smart home, we don’t only get entry to the house, but also to a range of services and transactions. Hence the distinction between objects and organisations becomes somewhat blurred.
