Identity, Credential & Access Management

Identity, Credential & Access Management

  • Personal Identity Verification; HSPD-12; Zero Trust
  • Modern ICAM Solutions; FIDO; Federation; Single Sign On
  • Enterprise Logical and Physical Access Control
  • Public Key Infrastructure; Encryption and Digital Signature

There is a pressing need to secure federal physical and digital infrastructures and standardize secure access to them. Various government policies, including Homeland Security Presidential Directive (HSPD-12) and Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Memorandum M-19-17, drove the development of identity standards by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), notably the Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 201 and Special Publication (SP) 800-63.

These initiatives ushered in the age of Personal Identity Verification (PIV) cards and Common Access Cards (CACs), which offer strong authentication options. More recently, FIDO Alliance passkey initiatives and the federal zero trust architecture (ZTA) initiative are further transforming federal authentication and authorization requirements.

Federal agencies face complex compliance challenges in this dynamic environment. Understanding the regulatory requirements is one hurdle, while security and privacy architecture development, implementation, and operation is another. Organizational change management is perhaps the greatest challenge of all when strengthening ICAM implementations.

Electrosoft possesses over 15 years’ experience in this highly specialized field – and a solid record of accomplishment. We are a respected HSPD/ICAM thought leader whose contributions include co-authorship of key NIST PIV publications; solution development and implementation in multiple federal agencies; and initiation and operation of the FIPS 201 Evaluation Program.
