HID Global’s pivCLASS Government Solutions portfolio is an integrated product suite that enables the U.S. federal government, contractors and other facilities to comply with federal identity mandates without having to replace existing physical access control systems. The products make it easy for agencies to use Personal Identification Verification (PIV) and other smart cards for physical access control, resulting in compliance, interoperability and high security. Supporting PKI-at-the-door mandates and PIV-I and CIV (also known as PIV-C) requirements for cards issued by non-federal entities, the product family delivers fully tested and validated solutions for upgrading a physical access control infrastructure so that it can authenticate PIV credentials across the full range of assurance levels as defined by the federal government’s Special Publication 800-116 (SP800-116). pivCLASS also supports the Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC) reader specification. The full line of products includes eight different readers, an authentication module and a validation server. The Server configures the authentication modules, manages their firmware updates, and regularly updates credential status information for enforcement.
