Carillion, Technology Industries develop identity management solution for federal agencies
VIENNA and ALEXANDRIA, VA Sept. 12, 2016 Carillon Information Security and Technology Industries are pleased to announce the availability of a fully FIPS-201 compliant IAM (Identity and Access Management) platform leveraging Carillon's Pathfinder SCVP solution. SCVP (Server Based Certificate Verification Protocol) is an Internet standard protocol that allows agencies to centrally validate federal credentials, which is an essential security component of HSPD-12.
Pathfinder SCVP services provides a scalable approach to manage the complexities of proper PD-Val (Path Discovery and Validation), especially when interoperating with large communities such as the U.S. Federal Bridge PKI. When combined with Technology Industries' proven EntryPoint access management platform, customers have a simple, inexpensive and PACS- agnostic solution for logical and physical applications.
This innovative approach solves the Federal agencies requirements to do PIV, CAC, PIV-I, CIV PD-Val in conformity with HSPD-12 without the need to rip and replace Physical Access and Control Systems (PACS) that are already deployed. Carillon's Pathfinder SCVP solution is designed for high performance and is capable of returning an SCVP PKI validation response in less than 100 milliseconds.
"When we set out to build Pathfinder SCVP, our goal was to provide a solution that was extremely fast while being simple to install and maintain", says Patrick Patterson, President of Carillon Information Security, "we realized that if a cardholder had to wait more than a second at the door for their credentials to validate our clients would end up with bad morning rush hours leading to bad user experience".
As for Technology Industries, "we saw a real opportunity to solve a big challenge for U.S. Federal Agencies- an ability to make a highly performant, real-time access decision based on thorough credential validation without having to replace their existing PACS infrastructure." says Eric Hildre from Technology Industries.
