Advanced access control hardware and software designed to meet the latest Federal Identity, Credential, and Access Management (FICAM) requirements.

Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 (HSPD-12) mandated the establishment of a standard for the identification of Federal Government employees and contractors. HSPD-12 requires the use of a common identification credential for both logical and physical access to federally controlled facilities and information systems. The Department of Commerce and NIST were tasked with producing a standard for secure and reliable forms of identification.

In response, NIST published Federal Information Processing Standard Publication 201 (FIPS 201), Personal Identity Verification (PIV) of Federal Employees and Contractors, and a number of special publications that provide more details on the implementation of the standard. Since publication of FIPS 201, federal agencies and enterprises have implemented FIPS 201-compliant ID programs and have issued PIV cards. The FIPS 201 PIV card is a smart card with both contact and contactless interfaces that is now being issued for all federal employees and contractors.
