HID Teams With Eid Passport on PIV-I Managed Service
HID Global will integrate its pivCLASS credentials and ActivID CMS with Eid Passport’s RAPIDGate Premier solution.
AUSTIN, Texas – HID Global has teamed with Eid Passport, the largest commercial provider of vendor credentials at military facilities, to supply its ActivID Credential Management System (CMS) for Eid Passport’s new Personal Identity Verification – Interoperable (PIV-I) managed service. Eid Passport’s service is targeted at commercial, government and military organizations that require the highest levels of identity assurance to secure sensitive physical and logical assets.
Recently, the U.S. Navy awarded a contract to provide credentialing support for the Navy Commercial Access Control System (NCACS), its contractors, vendors, suppliers and service providers who seek entry to naval facilities. To meet the needs of the U.S. Navy and other customers for its PIV-I service, Eid Passport has worked with HID Advantage Partner Axiad IDS to integrate ActivID CMS into its service for secure provisioning of the cards.
“We look forward to working with Eid Passport, which is a Level 4 PIV-I issuer – the highest level of identity assurance possible,” says Eric Widlitz, managing director of Identity and Access Management, North America with HID Global. “With the integration of HID Global‘s pivCLASS credentials and ActivID CMS with the Eid Passport’s RAPIDGate Premier solution, Eid Passport is able to ensure that third parties working at high-security government installations have been thoroughly screened, vetted and issued a PIV-I credential before they arrive onsite.”
According to HID, provisioning the cards using ActivID CMS makes it easy to define and apply policies to manage data, applets, and digital certificates across the entire lifecycle of a card. ActivID CMS can be integrated into an existing security infrastructure, and can scale to millions of credentials in complex, distributed environments with multiple user groups.
