SIA Partners With CoreStreet for IT and Physical Security Report
The Security Industry Association (SIA) and CoreStreet, a
provider of converging physical and IT solutions, have
released a report entitled “The Roles of Authentication,
Authorization and Cryptography in Expanding Security
The report, which is part of SIA’s “Quarterly Technical
Update,” explains technological requirements with regard to
FIPS 201, as well as major drivers for physical and IT
convergence in the federal government.
“This report is the ideal executive summary of FIPS
201,” said Rob Zivney, vice president of Hirsch
Electronics. “It is a great starting point for anyone
trying to get their arms around the technology of the new
PIV smart card. It clarifies the impact on the physical
access control system for both the manufacturer and the
local site trying to understand the overwhelming number of
documents published on the subject. There is just the right
balance of technical detail and breadth of scope. We have
made it required reading at Hirsch.”
SIA asked for CoreStreet’s help because of the firm’s long history of working with the federal government as well as its ability to design and deploy infrastructure solutions for IT and physical security. The 32-page report is available as a free download from SIA and CoreStreet.
