Large memory PIV card gains GSA approval

Gemalto : 29 October, 2009  (New Product)
The Personal Identity Verification Card from Gemalto with expanded memory for supporting multiple biometric identity applications gains approval from the General Services Administration
Gemalto has announced that its large memory Personal Identity Verification (PIV) card is now listed on the General Services Administration (GSA) Approved Product List (APL). Gemalto has already begun volume deliveries of the card for the US federal government's PIV program. The card has already received FIPS 201 and FIPS 140-2 certifications.

The Gemalto PIV Card is dual contact/contactless technology built on the JavaCard platform. It doubles the storage capacity of today's PIV cards, a highly demanded feature in the government sector.

"Our US government customers asked us to develop this very large memory card to give them more space to implement stronger digital security measures," said Neville Pattinson, vice president of Standards and Government Affairs, Gemalto North America. "Today we are providing a PIV card with memory capacity to handle larger encryption keys and store multiple identity certificates. The larger memory will help to future-proof PIV credentials, because it offers the room to add other applications downstream, such as biometrics, extending its useful life."

The Gemalto PIV card allows the identities of government employees and contractors to be verified electronically quickly, while resisting any fraud, tampering or counterfeiting. Already capable of secure storage of cardholder fingerprints, the card also supports, through its open platform, adding new applications, such as biometric match-on-card, if desired.
