The approval was reached after a detailed government and third-party vulnerability and interoperability testing process, says ASSA ABLOY.

NEW HAVEN, Conn. — ASSA ABLOY has received approval to utilize its integrated locking solutions on U.S. federal government access control Federal Identify, Credential and Access Management (FICAM) applications.

The approval was reached after a lengthy and detailed government and third-party security vulnerability and interoperability testing process, according to an announcement. The following products are now on the General Services Administration’s (GSA) FIPS 201 Evaluation Program Approved Product List (APL):

  • Corbin Russwin SN Series Integrated Lock
  • Corbin Russwin SN Series Integrated Lock With Keypad
  • Sargent SN Series Integrated Lock
  • Sargent SN Series Integrated Lock With Keypad
  • HES KS210 Series Integrated Server Cabinet Lock

These integrated access control locks are equipped with Open Supervised Device Protocol (OSDP) technology that allows for secure channel, serial communication between the reader and physical access control system (PACS).

The products were tested and approved by the U.S federal government in conjunction with the LenelS2 OnGuard access control system, including the LNL-X4420 intelligent controller with the embedded HID pivCLASS Authentication Module.

“We’re excited to expand our suite of FICAM-approved solutions for OnGuard access control system customers,” says Derek Greenland, Director, Federal Government Solutions, LenelS2. “The ASSA ABLOY integrated locks for doors and server cabinets provide high-quality choices for government facilities implementing FICAM controls to protect critical assets.”

“We are excited to be able to offer government facilities more options to expand their PACS [physical access control system],” says Jeff Huggins, vice president government programs, ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions. “Having these specific integrated OSDP access control locks approved for applications mandated by the Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 [HSPD-12], along with our varying wireless, WiFi and PoE locking options, make it easier and more affordable to support the use and implementation of card reader technology deeper into each facility, even server cabinet doors.”
