The Homeland Security Presidential Directive (HSPD-12) requires agencies to adopt controls and procedures designed to prevent unauthorized access to government facilities and systems, reducing the potential for unauthorized access. In response to this directive, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) published a Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 201 – “Personal Identity Verification (PIV) for Federal Employees and Contractors”. FIPS 201 and its associated publications provide detailed specifications for Federal agencies and departments to deploy PIV cards to their employees and contractors. Production, issuance, and management of the PIV card provides security, authentication, trust and privacy.

The manageID PIV is an enterprise HSPD-12 Personal Identity Verification Credentialing solution that complies with NIST FIPS 201, NIST supporting special publications, and all applicable HSPD-12 and PIV federal standards to deliver an innovative and cost-effective ICAM solution. 

Key features of the manageID PIV system include:


  • Support for full PIV life cycle management of identities and credentials;
  • Customizable workflow;
  • Integration with a number of FIPS-201 approved biometric devices to support enrollment, production, finalization, and issuance;
  • Integration with HR systems;
  • Integration with PKI Infrastructure;
  • Integration with various Physical Access Control Systems (PACS) and Logical Access Control Systems (LACS); and
  • Capabilities to support new requirements such as derived credentials.
