HID Global

HID Global, trusted leader in solutions for the delivery of secure identity in conjunction with ActivIdentity, a recently acquired HID Global company, announced the release of ActivEntry 2.4. The solution is part of HID's federal identity compliance initiative that combines HID Global and ActivIdentity products and services to meet Personal Identity Verification (PIV) standards and certifications as mandated by Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 (HSPD-12). ActivEntry enables Federal Agencies to comply with OMB M 11-11's requirements to secure physical access to buildings with the PIV card.

The company's latest release adds a new service application programming interface (API), enabling Physical Access Control Systems (PACS) vendors to integrate enrollment capability directly to ActivEntry's Validation Service. ActivEntry 2.4 also expands Personal Identification Verification (PIV) card support to include PIV-I (PIV-interoperable) and PIV-C (PIV-compatible) for cards issued by non-federal entities.

"ActivEntry2.4's new Validation Service API provides HID Global's government customers with the tightest level of access control integration possible," said Jerome Becquart, general manager of ActivIdentity, part of HID Global. "This level of integration will leverage an agency's existing access control system for common operations and enrollment, which greatly reduces the deployment costs and improves the user experience."

The PACS solution's enroller feature automatically pushes card enrollments to ActivEntry, making ActivEntry Enroller completely optional and necessary only for stand-alone operations or configurations where an access control system is not integrated with the new API. ActivEntry 2.4 also integrates reader configuration and audit management into the access control console.

ActivEntry 2.4 add supports for PIV-I and PIV-C cards in compliance with NIST (National Institute for Standards and Technology) Special Publication 800-73-3, which uniquely identifies cards by a Universally Unique Identifier (UUID) instead of a FASC-N (Federal Agency Smart Credential Number) used for PIV cards.
