Thales’s IDPrime PIV (Personal Identity Verification) card is a FIPS 140-2 and FIPS 201 standards-based card for government agencies, state and local government organizations to issue users credentials that the federal government can trust. The same card can be used for either a CIV or PIV-I-based deployment depending on company policies and use requirements. IDPrime PIV cards deliver high levels of security for identity management, interoperability and trust with federal agencies and departments as well as serving as a form of passwordless authentication.
Smart cards conform to the PIV card standard, FIPS 201, to use interoperable identity credentials. Customers can use the cards for physical and logical access to locations and systems. Although the PIV standard was originally intended for use by U.S. federal government and contractors, these same cards can be used for non-federal issuers such as state, local and foreign governments as well as the private sector.
