The U.S. Army Reserve Command has implemented Monitor Dynamics’ FICAM Platform to achieve FIPS-201 compliance with its physical access control systems. As per OMB M11-11, each Army Reserve command facility will be required to implement technology such as the Trusted FICAM Platform to achieve FIPS-201 certification.
The U.S. Army Reserve Command commands, controls, and supports all Army Reserve troop units in the continental U.S. It also ensures the readiness of its forces and prepares the nearly 1,700 units under its command to mobilize and deploy to a wartime theater of operation.
The Trusted FICAM Platform achieved certification by CertiPath and is on the Certified Products List. MonDyn provides FIPS-201 training and site certification for each location through its CertiPath Certified affiliation. The Platform delivers PKI @ the Reader and is validated across the Federal Bridge for PIV-I credential verification. The Trusted FICAM Platform is the first PACS system which allows all PIV-I credentials to successfully operate and communicate with each other securely.
The Trusted FICAM Platform has been successfully implemented and is currently operating reading PIV-I and CAC across numerous U.S. Army Reserve Command locations throughout the nation. The platform has delivered convergence capabilities to the command for both physical and logical access to facilities and computer networks.
