CoreStreet announced the availability of the CoreStreet FIPS-201 Suite of products to upgrade existing physical access control systems to be fully compliant with HSPD-12 and all functionality as defined in Special Publication 800-116. The company also announced that its PIVMAN products is available with Lenel and a partnership with MaxID to market PIVMAN with the company’s handheld ID readers.
Special Publication 800-116, as published by the National Institute of Standards and Technology in November, covers recommendations for the use of Personal Identity Verification credentials in access control systems.
The CoreStreet FIPS-201 Suite of products permits government agencies to upgrade system to enable the verification of PIV cards, Common Access Cards, First Responder Authentication Credential cards and Transportation Worker Identification Credential cards without requiring the replacement of the existing system. The Solution verifies these cards at assurance levels as defined in SP 800-116.
The CoreStreet FIPS-201 Suite consists of the following components:
CoreStreet FIPS-201 F5 System: Adds PIV, CAC, FRAC and TWIC credential compatibility to an existing PACS
CoreStreet FIPS-201 Device Developer Bundle and CoreStreet FIPS-201 Head-end Developer Bundle: Software developer kits allowing OEM vendors to build SP 800-116 compliance into their products.
The other two announcements deal with CoreStreet’s PIVMAN product. The PIVMAN Suite of software products provides solutions for several identity and access management.
The standard CoreStreet PIVMAN Solution aggregates identity and attribute information from a variety of trusted sources for access to government buildings, port facilities or disaster sites as part of the National Preparedness Framework. Through integration with OnGuard, the CoreStreet PIVMAN for Lenel Solution allows access levels configured in OnGuard to be displayed on mobile handhelds running the CoreStreet PIVMAN Client software.
Further, the CoreStreet PIVMAN for Lenel Solution retrieves audit logs from the Clients and uploads them to OnGuard for display in the Alarm Monitoring application, and for use in activities such as mustering and reporting.
Also, CoreStreet and MaxID have formed a partnership to market the CoreStreet PIVMAN Solution on MaxID’s iDLMax biometric handheld device.
