What is PIV-I?
In 2004, Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 (HSPD-12) required that a federal standard be established for secure and reliable forms of identification. To leverage the federal infrastructure, Personal Identity Verification-Interoperable (PIV-I) was created to provide non-federal organizations with the means to comply with federal security standards. The PIV-I standard currently serves as the federal government’s most rigorous protocol for commercial high-assurance credentials, and allows a single credential to be interoperable across multiple federal government agencies.
Cyber threats and security breaches have progressed to the point where passwords are no longer secure enough to adequately protect organizations. As a result, government agencies are requiring contractors to comply with federal security standards or risk losing their contracts.
SureID’s PIV-I credentials can be issued to individuals supporting a wide variety of markets such as the commercial industry, the military services and other federal departments and agencies on a nationwide scale including:
-State and local government employees
-Federal contractors and suppliers
-Private sector employees
-Nonprofit organizations and volunteering networks
