Identiv Announces U.S. Government Certification of uTrust TS ScramblePad Reader

Identiv, Inc. announced that the uTrust TS ScramblePad Government Reader is now included on the U.S. government’s FICAM Approved Products List (APL). The General Services Administration (GSA) lab, which is part of the Federal Identity, Credential, and Access Management (FICAM) Testing Program, has evaluated and approved Identiv’s uTrust TS ScramblePad, joining the mullion, wall mount, and keypad models on the APL.

The uTrust TS ScramblePad is a significant update to the company’s patented scrambling keypad door reader for high-security government and commercial entryways. The update modernizes its predecessor by adding new high-security features, including support for over 1,500 credentials such as PIV, PIV-I, CAC, FICAM E-PACS, PKI, DESFire EV1, MIFARE, and PLAID. Using open communication protocol standards such as Wiegand, RS-485 (OSDP), and Ethernet networking (including PoE), the uTrust TS ScramblePad offers simple migration from the previous ScramblePads to RS-485, or Ethernet-based FICAM E-PACS compliance.

Identiv’s uTrust TS Government Readers are specifically designed for U.S. government customers to support any existing building access system (such as Identiv, Lenel, AMAG, Honeywell, or Software House) and provide a forward path to FICAM compliance. Featuring high security with an inbuilt secure processor certified to the highest standards (EAL 6+), uTrust TS Readers support all major commercial and government access credentials, including U.S. government PIV, PIV-I, and CAC. The uTrust TS ScramblePad adds a modernized version of the industry-standard scrambling keypad. All form factors and models have been evaluated and approved on the APL.

“The Hirsch ScramblePad has been an icon of high security,” said Jason Hart, Identiv CEO. “With more than 50,000 readers deployed in the field, many agencies will be updating readers on legacy systems to select RS-485 or Ethernet for CAK in the future. With its addition to the APL, the uTrust TS ScramblePad is a direct, cost-effective replacement for all existing, non-compliant readers.”

Offering a seamless transition to standards-based network cabling, uTrust TS Readers support simultaneous Wiegand, RS-485, and Ethernet communication. Four independent processors combine to deliver the fastest building entry transaction times, speeding access and reducing user frustration. One reader can be used at all building access points, delivering secure, future-proof access, while simplifying purchasing and reducing deployment and management costs. The readers are currently under evaluation at numerous agencies and are in high demand by Identiv original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).

uTrust TS Readers are available immediately through Identiv Global Partners and for OEM partners through the uTrust Technology Partnership Program.
