Codebench releases HSPD-12 software solution

PIVCheck to ease TWIC and PIV integration with physical access control systems


Codebench has released the PIVCheck Product Suite, a cardholder validation solution for HSPD-12 compliance with automated physical access control system (PACS) enrollment and certificate management.

Using PIVCheck Plus to tie a TWIC or PIV credential to a PACS badge, end-users may continue to utilize their PACS badges for access, while their PIV or TWIC certificates are checked for revocation. If PIVCheck Certificate Manager finds a revoked certificate, the cardholder’s PACS badge can be automatically suspended. This important feature leverages the already existing PACS infrastructure and supports it with certificate management.

"The PIVCheck Product Suite will change the paradigm that PIV and TWIC compliance has to be complicated and costly," said Geri Castaldo, CEO of Codebench. "PIVCheck Plus gives facility operators the flexibility to migrate to PIV-enabled readers over time, or to not migrate at all."

PIVCheck Plus does not require a connection to, or the cost of, an identity management system to be able to import card data into a PACS. Because PIV and TWIC cards contain all of the data needed for enrollment, once those cards are validated and authenticated, importing the information is as simple as clicking "OK".

Available in mobile and desktop versions, PIVCheck enables HSPD-12 and FIPS 201- compliant validation of PIV, TWIC or NG CAC cards in real time. In developing PIVCheck Mobile, Codebench partnered with Datastrip, a world-leading provider of field-proven mobile identification and verification technology. Datastrip’s DSV2+TURBO handheld biometric terminal operates with commercial off-the-shelf FIPS 201 PIV-II and ANSI INCITS 378-compliant fingerprint capture devices.

The PIVCheck Product Suite consists of the following products:
