HSPD-12, a directive from the US President mandating a common identification standard for all federal government agency employees and contractors and, FIPS 201, a new standard released by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have changed the landscape in the identity world. Consulting services: PIV deployment will be a major project in every agency requiring unprecedented coordination between Human Resources, Security and IT.
HSPD-12 established deadlines for adoption of the new identification mandate. As promptly as possible, but in no case later than eight months after the release of the standard, or by October 2005, executive departments and agencies are required to use the standard for identification issued to federal employees and contractors to be used for both physical access to federally controlled facilities and logical access to federally controlled information systems.
FIPS 201 is a new government-wide reliable Personal Identification Verification (PIV) for government employees and contractors.
