HID Global Provides Credential Management System for PIV-I Managed Service Offered by Eid Passport

HID Global, a developer of secure identity solutions, announced that it has teamed with Eid Passport, Inc., a developer of high-assurance identity management solutions and a commercial provider of vendor credentials at military facilities, to supply Eid Passport with its ActivID Credential Management System (CMS) for Eid Passport’s new Personal Identity Verification – Interoperable (PIV-I) managed service.

Eid Passport’s service is targeted at commercial, government and military organizations that require the highest levels of identity assurance to secure sensitive physical and logical assets. Recently, the U.S. Navy awarded a contract to provide credentialing support for the Navy Commercial Access Control System (NCACS) its contractors, vendors, suppliers and service providers who seek entry to naval facilities. To meet the needs of the U.S. Navy and other customers for its PIV-I service, Eid Passport has worked with HID Advantage Partner Axiad IDS to integrate ActivID CMS into its service for secure provisioning of the cards. 

“We look forward to working with Eid Passport, which is a Level 4 PIV-I issuer – the highest level of identity assurance possible,” said Eric Widlitz, managing director of Identity and Access Management, North America with HID Global. “With the integration of HID Global’s pivCLASS credentials and ActivID CMS with the Eid Passport’s RAPIDGate Premier solution, Eid Passport is able to ensure that third parties working at high-security government installations have been thoroughly screened, vetted and issued a PIV-I credential before they arrive on site.”

Provisioning the cards using HID Global’s ActivID CMS makes it easy to define and apply policies to manage data, applets, and digital certificates across the entire lifecycle of a card. ActivID CMS is easily integrated into an existing security infrastructure, and can scale to millions of credentials in complex, distributed environments with multiple user groups.
