HID Signo PIV Readers

HID Global's pivCLASS® Solutions portfolio offers a comprehensive range of products designed to facilitate compliance with security regulations for U.S. Federal Government, government contractors, ports, and other facilities. This portfolio streamlines the utilization of Personal Identity Verification (PIV) and other smart cards for physical access control, ensuring adherence to security standards and fostering interoperability while maintaining a high level of security.

Achieving FIPS 201 compliance is seamlessly integrated into the system without the necessity for a disruptive "rip and replace" approach. The modular design empowers government agencies to leverage their PIV identity cards for robust Public Key Infrastructure (PKI)-based validation in the realm of physical access control. Importantly, this solution introduces advanced functionalities without the need for overhauling existing Physical Access Control Systems (PACS). By avoiding the "rip and replace" scenario, costs are minimized, and complexities are eliminated, making it a straightforward and cost-effective process to acquire, install, and maintain compliant physical access control systems.

HID Global's pivCLASS solution achieves this by establishing communication with an agency's PACS and external trust authority PKIs. This ensures the delivery of functionalities as specified by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Federal Information Processing Standards Publication 201 (FIPS 201).
