The PIVMAN™ System for Secure ID Checking
Immediate, mobile privilege validation of millions of cardholders, even without network connectivity.
The PIVMAN System consists of server software and handheld devices designed to allow authorized personnel the ability to control access to any site with confidence by quickly authenticating and validating the roles and identities of individuals wishing to enter an area.
With the PIVMAN System, information on a very large number of individuals-well into the hundreds of millions-can be managed without affecting performance, and without requiring a persistent connection to a data source.
These capabilities are critical in emergencies, such as homeland security incidents or natural disasters, that require the support of various federal, state, and local agencies, as well as private organizations.
Faced with such a large and diverse group, accurate and efficient access control is very challenging. With the PIVMAN System, individual cardholder privileges and identities are drawn from existing independent databases and published to PIVMAN Handhelds and other PIVMAN devices in a secure, highly compressed format.
As a result, when someone presents their smart card, the information on it is validated and the privileges displayed to the person charged with controlling access. This ensures that, even when all networks are down, the right people are able to gain access at the right time.
Mobile validationPerform immediate credential validation, anywhere, requiring no network connectivity or additional hardware.
Millions of individualsPrivilege information is stored on the device in a highly compressed, digitally signed identity and privilege list (IPL). In this way, privilege and identity information about millions of cardholders from various agencies and organizations is readily available.
Multiple, independent databasesPrivilege and identity data are sent to the IPL Publisher from existing databases. Participating independent organizations at the city, county, and national levels continue to maintain this identity and privilege information in independent databases as they do today.
Always up-to-dateThe PIVMAN System synchronizes dynamically using public wired or wireless connections, when such a connection is available. At the moment devices are needed, they always contain the latest data.
Works when all networks are downBy always storing the most up-to-date identity and privilege information on the device, cardholders can be validated immediately without requiring a network connection to perform the operation.
Highly flexibleThe PIVMAN System can be used for applications ranging from security at special events and mustering, to access in any bandwidth-constrained environment.
Comprehensive loggingAll events are logged and uploaded to the Management Station during synchronization. These logs can be used to create comprehensive activity and after-action reports.
