XceedID Multitechnology Card Readers Receive FIPS 201 Approval


XceedID Corp. announces three of its multitechnology card reader models have received Federal Information Processing Standards Publication 201 (FIPS-201) compliance.

The approval of XceedID readers under the FIPS 201 federal specification indicates that XceedID readers have passed compliance testing for compatibility with the new Personal Identity Verification (PIV II) credentials mandated for issuance to all federal employees over the next two years. The compliant models: XceedID mullion reader (XF1100-PIV), midrange reader (XF2100-PIV) and keypad reader (XF2110-PIV).

XceedID multitechnology readers are also compatible with many standard proximity and smart card technologies. The ability to read multiple existing card types and PIV II cards simultaneously allows agencies to transition from older proximity technologies to new, mandated PIV II credentials.
