Homeland security approval for AuthentX identity management

XTec : 17 March, 2008  (New Product)
AuthentX gains Task Order One for ability to supply compliant off the shelf identity card and management system.
XTec has been awarded Task Order One by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for its HSPD-12 program. The purpose of Task Order One is to establish the DHS wide HSPD-12 core infrastructure for the DHS enterprise. This infrastructure includes an Enterprise License for Identity and Credential Management Systems (IDMS/CMS), interfaces and card issuance workstations to enable DHS to issue HSPD-12 compliant PIV-II cards.

The ability to deploy a proven COTS solution rapidly has contributed to XTec's continued success in the HSPD-12 marketplace. With DHS, XTec was able to capitalise on the standard of excellence that they set throughout the Federal Government in achieving HSPD-12 "End-to-End" compliant programs.

XTec's AuthentX product line is a complete COTS solution allowing not only the immediate issuance of PIV II Credentials, but also having the capability of implementing physical and logical access control by using PIV cards enabled with the NIST High Security profile. "AuthentX is not just a card management and Identity management System," added Kevin Kozlowski, "AuthentX is an authentication solution with numerous application capabilities."

Albert Fernandez, President and CEO of XTec Incorporated stated: "XTec is pleased to be providing DHS with the enterprise infrastructure for the entire Department. This is a significant investment in expediting the program and allowing DHS to get past card issuance and into card usage." "We look forward to working with DHS Headquarters, and all Component agencies as well, in implementing their strategic plans for HSPD-12 card issuance and usage," added Tom Murphy, XTec's Director of Sales.
