Codebench Inc. of Coconut Creek, Fla., has formed a technology partnership with rugged-computer manufacturer DAP Technologies of Quebec to offer a mobile solution for the validation and registration of FIPS 201, PIV II compliant credentials.
Codebench’s PIVCheck software suite, an end-to-end card validation, authentication, and registration solution for HSPD-12 compliance, is now integrated with DAP’s CE3240B Guard System handheld computer. The Guard System computer features a rugged, modular design that can be configured with readers for magnetic stripe cards, contact and contactless smart cards, and HID Proximity cards to accommodate a number of credential formats including TWIC, PIV and CAC. It also can include a fingerprint biometric reader.
The integration of PIVCheck on DAP’s CE3240B Guard System allows security personnel to more easily validate and register credentials from cardholders in nearly any location within a facility, which is essential for creating temporary physical access control portals or conducting spot checks on credentials, according to the companies. Once DAP’s Guard System handheld computer has scanned the credential, the information can be validated and then uploaded to a facility’s physical security access control system by the PIVCheck software.
“Codebench’s PIVCheck software is designed to perform high-level identity authentication assurance of all U.S. government-issued smart cards,” said Len Schalkwyk, vice president of worldwide sales for DAP Technologies. “When used in conjunction with the Guard System handheld computer’s multi-modal verification technologies, these mobile applications provide a total solution system for all HSPD-12 identity requirements.
“Additionally, users, including federally controlled government facilities, ports and harbors, can validate cardholder credentials in real-time, as required by FIPS 201.”
