Our portfolio makes it easy for U.S. Federal Government and other facilities to comply with security regulations and to use their Personal Identity Verification (PIV) card and other smart cards for physical access control.

PIV Enabled Readers

PIV Enabled Readers support both FIPS 201 PKI-based card and legacy card types (PIV, PIV-I, CIV, CAC, TWIC, iCLASS®, HID Prox® and more). Together with the pivCLASS Authentication Module, any required authentication mode (CHUID, CAK, PIV+PIN, BIO, CHUID+BIO, CAK+BIO) can be executed to meet any security assurance level.

pivCLASS® Authentication Module

pivCLASS Authentication Modules (PAMs) are embedded computers packaged in a small form factor with pre-loaded, updatable firmware that are installed between the readers and existing PACS panel. PAMs do the “heavy lifting” of PIV cardholder credential validation as cards are presented to readers. The PAM caches validation status to deliver PKI-based high security at the door.
