This webinar occured on:  August 30, 2012

This webinar will explain what a FIPS 201 compliant identity credential is and how this federally mandated standard under HSPD-12 is reshaping the physical and logical access security industry. Since NIST first introduced the standard in 2005, over 10 million FIPS 201-compliant government employee and government contractor (PIV cards) IDs have been issued based on advanced smart card and biometrics technology.Over that time period, all major access control vendors have upgraded their PACS and LACS hardware and software to electronically authenticate the authenticity of the ID badge based on digital credentials stored inside the microprocessor chip embedded in each card and grant access privileges based on real-time authentication of the credentials.

The webinar will explain how the standard has also been applied to state and local government issuers and by fortune 1000 commercial enterprise security organizations using standards-based commercial off the shelf cards, readers, and software that meet some or all of the federal FIPS 201 standard.

The webinar will trace the evolution of the FIPS 201 standard and compare the features and functions of the PIV, PIV-I, and CIV versions of these smart card identity credentials based on the FIPS 201 standard. As the FIPS 201 standard has matured, it continues to be updated to support new features, such as match on card biometrics and new demands for mobile devices to store and present these secure credentials. The webinar will conclude with a advanced look at the changes that are coming in the FIPS 201-2 version of the standard NIST is planning to release by the end of 2012.

Viscount Systems, Inc.
Viscount is the market leader in FIPS 201 compliant unified PACS/LACS solutions. Its flagship Freedom platform eliminates the cost of control panels in favor of a PACS schema extension of the LACS platform. Multiple instances of the software can protect against network disruption or individual server failure. Doors are controlled using low cost IP encryption bridges that communicate directly to local or Cloud servers. Each IP bridge has a MAC address that is populated in the LACS schema. Viscount extends traditional LACS permissions to include security rules and roles such as door schedules, card access groups, door monitoring, and security alarms to eliminate the separate PACS programming GUI.
