SAFRAN Group’s Sagem Orga and MorphoTrak have received FIPS 201 approval of its technology for the PIV program.
The General Services Administration-approved products include smart cards and readers that satisfy security standards of the PIV program.
With the GSA certification, the two firms are now an official source of PIV smart cards, PIV logical and physical access readers, as well as template generator and matcher for federal agencies and other organizations required to adhere to the FIPS 201 standard.
Sagem Orga says its PIV cards may be purchased by federal agencies to comply with the HSPD-12 to issue a secure, interoperable smart card containing biometric data, cryptographic keys and personally identifiable information about the cardholder.
