Quantum Secure Now on FIPS 201 Approved Products List

Quantum Secure Now on FIPS 201 Approved Products ListQuantum Secure announced that they have been added to the GSA Approved Products List (APL) in the Caching Status Proxy Category. Quantum Secure is certified in the category with no restrictions, and federal agencies choosing their SAFE for PIV Credential product will get a complete FIPS 201compliant solution within the category.

“Physical security and identity management is a critical need for government agencies,” said Quantum Secure President and CEO, Ajay Jain. “Now that we have been certified as a vendor, Quantum Secure’s SAFE solution is accessible to manage this important security need for government agencies.”

According to the category description, the caching status proxy is a product that periodically polls the status of all registered PIV Cards and caches the status responses from the issuer. Caching status proxies are useful in scenarios that require extremely quick query-responses for certificate revocation status information or when physical access control systems need to cache certificate revocation information to make an access control decision when online certificate validation is not possible.

The goal of the FIPS 201 Evaluation Program (EP) is to evaluate products and services against the requirements outlined in FIPS 201 and its supporting documents. In addition to derived test requirements developed to test conformance to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Standard, the General Services Administration (GSA) agency has also established interoperability and performance metrics to further determine product suitability. A set of approval and test procedures have been developed that outline the evaluation criteria, approval mechanisms and test process employed by the laboratory during their evaluation of a supplier’s product or service against the requirements for that category.

Today’s security requirements demand a comprehensive security infrastructure that includes both the physical and logical security spectrums. Crucial to this need is an end-to-end solution that manages identities, compliance and events across disparate physical security systems. Quantum Secure’s SAFE suite of software products effectively addresses these challenges with best practice processes that reduce both costs and risks.
