Salamander Technologies’ MOBILE PIV software has been integrated with the Motorola Solutions MC75A handheld mobile computer and biometric smart card reader attachment to add a FIPS 201-compliant cardholder unique identifier (CHUID) reader to the General Services Administration Approved Product List (APL).
Salamander Technologies’ MOBILE PIV identification software, part of Salamander’s interTRAX Suite of Accountability Solutions, enables Motorola’s MC75A handheld mobile computer and biometric smart card reader attachment to provide credentialing, secure access and identity verification to First Responders.
This integrated Motorola/Salamander FIPS 201-compliant product fulfills HSPD-12, which requires federal workers to carry a secure PIV card, by capturing and then certifying fingerprint samples when authenticating a cardholder’s identity. It controls site security and access by employing three-factor authentication.
In addition, Salamander’s MOBILE PIV solution fulfills HSPD-5, which requires agencies to follow National Incident Management System guidelines. These guidelines require situational awareness at an incident. Specifically, incident commanders must be able to answer:
- Who is on site/where are they assigned?
- What are their qualifications?
- When did they arrive/depart/undergo a status check?
Listed on the GSA FIPS 201 APL under the CHUID Reader category as MOBILE PIV, this solution has been independently validated by InfoGard, the first IT security laboratory accredited by the National Institute of Standards and Technology.
