FIPS/PIV-Enabled Access Control Solutions for Government Facilities


The expectations and requirements on government contracts for safety and security projects are both specific and complex. The first steps to understanding the complexity of this market segment begin with examining the current landscape of government-specific security regulations. For Physical Access Control Systems (PACS), understanding the requirements of Federal Identity, Credential, and Access Management (FICAM) architecture is imperative to a system's successful design and deployment, including the hardware, software and Personal Identity Verification (PIV) credentials that comprise these applications.

Over six million PIV credentials are used in federal facilities. It’s essential to be able to use those credentials throughout the facilities, at a lower cost than the main entry points.

ASSA ABLOY offers a full range of solutions that allow you to secure:

  • FIPS 201-3 mandated openings which require strong authentication protocol
    • HID Global’s pivCLASS® Solutions enable government facilities to upgrade their existing physical access control systems (PACS) to achieve FIPS 201 compliance.
  • Uncontrolled openings within the facility that simply need to read the PIV credential
    • Wireless locks and integrated hardwired locks allow federal facilities to extend their FIPS-compliant PACS deeper into their facilities while still using the same PIV credential. Faster installation times and re-use of existing infrastructure reduces costs and provides greater flexibility.
