Oberthur continues to support US government with PIV cards

Thursday 21 January 2010

The company, which has been supplying physical and logical security access cards to the federal government for nearly a decade, has been the leading provider of HSPD-12 cards since the directive was issued in 2006.

The HSPD-12 directive sets the requirements for a common identification card that all Federal Employees and Federal contractors must have. FIPS 201 sets the standard PIV requirements.

Oberthur Technologies has three US-based facilities, including a secure service center for card personalization on each coast to ensure disaster recovery and business continuity for its customers.

Along with card manufacturing and personalization, Oberthur Technologies also deploys complete machine agnostic common personalization system software for federal agencies that want to handle their personalization in-house.
