atsec information security, a laboratory for the GSA FIPS 201 Evaluation Program which runs a product approval program for PIV-related products, has announced the successful GSA FIPS 201 evaluation of four Codebench products. Codebench is the first company with solutions evaluated for GSA product categories Caching Status Proxy, PIV Authentication System, and CHUID Authentication System.
Codebench’s PIVCheck Plus Desktop Edition with PIVCheck Certificate Manager, PIVCheck Plus Mobile Edition with PIVCheck Certificate Manager and PIVCheck Desktop Edition (both the SCVP Client and PIV Authentication System) were tested and evaluated in atsec’s Austin, Texas lab.
As a result of its evaluation, atsec has determined that Codebench’s products meet FIPS 201 requirements on behalf of GSA, who ultimately grants the approval.
These products are now listed on the FIPS 201 Evaluation program Approved Product List, which only lists those products and services that are in compliance with the current version of the standard and its supporting NIST Special Publication 800-116, which provides recommendations for the Use of PIV credentials in physical access control systems.
