About the Session
When designing a physical access control system (PACS) to protect government facilities from unauthorized individuals, it is vital not only that integrators comply with the latest National Institute of Standards and Technology Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 201 standards, but also that they integrate the latest technologies to help end users adapt to a touchless, post-COVID world, especially as the release of FIPS 201-3 in 2022 elevated face biometrics to the same level of assurance as fingerprint biometrics.
Industry is creating a portfolio of high-assurance, touchless biometrics for Common Access Card (CAC), Personal Identity Verification (PIV) and Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC) that utilize face photo and fingerprint biometrics for FIPS 201-3 compliance. This presentation will address how integrating existing FICAM certified components into an existing FIPS 201 card install base can utilize touchless biometrics and be FIPS 201-3 compliant.
