Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12
As one of the first GSA certified end-to-end providers in 2004 XTec is proven to be an industry leader in HSPD-12 helping agencies such as the Department of State, Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Labor with deploying and using Personal Identity Verification (PIV) credentials.
Recent guidance from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) issued in the 2011 Memorandum 11-11 called for Federal agencies to begin utilizing the electronic capabilities of the PIV credentials. XTec specializes in both the usage and maintenance of PIV credentials providing solutions for physical access control, logical access control and lifecycle management.
Federal Identity, Credential, and Access Management
The FICAM initiative began in 2009 with the release of the roadmap guidance addressing the major goals and activities each agency must consider for the transition into the prescribed architecture. FICAM intersects with several other government mandates and initiatives, HSPD-12 being one of the major influencers. Naturally XTec products and services help agencies meet 76% of FICAM transition activities and improve 81% of agency FICAM performance metrics.
XTec's pivotal AuthentX Identity and Credential Management System which has received several Certification and Accreditations, serves as the core to FICAM compliance and with added service components fully addresses the Digital Identity, Credentialing, Authentication and Cryptography FICAM service areas.
