Provides U.S. Government Market with Complete Identity Verification Technology
LAS VEGAS, Nev.–Oberthur Card Systems, one of the leading smart card suppliers in the government market, demonstrated the industry’s first Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 (HSPD-12) compliant ID smart card solution, TotalIDOne, at CTST. The system will ensure government agencies are compliant with the HSPD-12, which requires a common identity and credentialing standard for physical and logical access for all federal employees and contractors.
“TotalIDOne is an off-the-shelf solution created as a result of the successful ID program we designed for the General Services Administration,” said Philippe Tartavull, president and CEO of Oberthur Card Systems American division. “The system is compliant with all U.S. government standards, making it a cost-effective and proven solution for other U.S. government agencies as well as contractors that must be compliant with HSPD-12 by October 2005 in order to do business with the government.”
In addition to the manufacturing and personalization services that are critical to TotalIDOne, Oberthur Card Systems provides carrier attachment, PIN activation services, and back-up personalization facilities that are ISO 9000 compliant. All Oberthur smart card products for government markets include the latest FIPS 140-2 Level 3 certified IDOne Cosmo – a dual interface contactless card with 64K of memory and a Personal Identify Verification (PIV) compliant application.
Oberthur Card Systems is steadily increasing its share of the public sector ID card programs, which include security and access contracts with a number of U.S. government agencies such as the U.S. Department of Defense, The Department of State, TSA and the U.S. Treasury.
“Oberthur Card Systems is focused on meeting and exceeding the highest standards required by the U.S. government. The company is uniquely skilled at high-speed, secure production and the service efficiency critical to the successful implementation of these programs,” Tartavull added.
