Electrosoft has been helping Federal customers with HSPD-12 compliance and PIV card implementations since 2006. Our employees helped to develop significant sections of FIPS 201 and are named co-authors of nearly every PIV-related NIST guidelines including SPs 800-73-4, 800-79-2, 800-85A&B-4,800-116 Rev 1, 800-156, 800-157 and 800-166. We developed and operated the GSA FIPS 201 Evaluation Program laboratory over a six year period and were instrumental in adding hundreds of products on the FIPS 201 Approved Products List (APL). We supported a number of Federal agencies in their HSPD-12 and PIV issuance capabilities and performed independent assessments of the PIV issuance capabilities for several other agencies.
We assist agencies in understanding, implementing and complying with HSPD-12, FIPS 201 and related Special Publications and OMB memoranda. We work with agencies to develop plans, policies, procedures, architectures and implementation strategy for PIV Card issuance as well as PIV Card integration with logical and physical access control systems.
