Identity One Introduces FIPSlink Software

Identity One’s newly announced FIPSlink solution provides support for users of the HID Global pivCLASS Mobile Validation software.

ATLANTA—In 2022, HID Global announced that March 31, 2023, would mark the end of support for its pivCLASS Mobile Validation software. Since the announcement, Identity One points out that many HID mobile solution users have explored the impact of the announcement on their operations.

In light of this news, Identity One has stepped up to announce its FIPSlink software is now available as a replacement for users who previously relied on HID’s pivCLASS Mobile software for handheld verification of TWIC, PIV and CAC (FIPS 201 credentials). According to Identity One, FIPSlink represents a cost-effective and operationally efficient alternative for existing HID pivCLASS customers. Users can contact their security integrator or access control system sales representative to replace pivCLASS with FIPSlink software, using a special discount reserved for users switching from a competitor like HID to Identity One. This unique offering allows users to pay the equivalent of pivCLASS Mobile’s annual software support renewal and upgrade to the new FIPSlink software.

FIPSlink performs TWIC, PIV and CAC (FIPS 201 credential) validation and access control function on handheld devices, such as Credence 3, Coppernic Access ER and Idemia ID Screen running Android OS, while also allowing users to effortlessly integrate into existing PACS. Users switching from pivCLASS to FIPSlink can also utilize their existing registrations in the pivCLASS database. For users who want to start fresh with a clean database, Identity One offers FIPS 201 credential registration that integrates with their access control system.

FIPSlink offers users everything they need, from credential validation on a handheld device to multi-factor authentication at a gate, door or turnstile and everything in between.
