Hirsch Government FICAM Solution

Identiv’s End-to-End Federal Identity, Credential, and Access Management (FICAM) Solution was developed to implement a simple, affordable FICAM-compliant solution with optimal performance.

Identiv’s end-to-end Federal Identity, Credential, and Access Management (FICAM) solution has been developed to address an industry-wide problem of how to implement FICAM simply and with optimal performance. In today’s physical access world, existing FICAM solutions are expensive, slow, and increasingly difficult to set up. Identiv’s conceptual approach to FICAM and the Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 201 Topology Categories addresses your current PACS Infrastructure, Validation System, and Personal Identity Verification (PIV) Reader. It is faster and less expensive than the competition.

Existing Software

Identiv’s Hirsch Velocity Certificate Service is compatible with existing Velocity systems running Velocity 3.6 after application of a feature pack. All existing systems have the ability to be upgraded through software updates.

Identiv’s Professional Services Group (PSG) can also provide transition planning support to upgrade existing systems. FISMA, COOP, and enterprise PACS solutions are also available.


Secure Network Interface Board 3 (SNIB3)
The SNIB3 is an expansion component update for Hirsch Mx and DIGI*TRAC Controllers. It is a sophisticated, secure communication device that has dedicated processors to efficiently handle encryption and management operations. SNIB3 is used to manage PKI certificate data for door access as provisioned by Velocity. Using FIPS 140-2 certified encryption technology, SNIB3 serves as the communication hub from controller to Velocity using a secure TCP/IP protocol.

RS485 Reader Expansion Board (RREB)
RREB is a unique reader communication device that installs onto the expansion cable of Hirsch Mx and DIGI*TRAC Controllers and features eight RS-485 communication ports, capable of supporting 16 readers on eight doors. The RREB makes it possible to have extremely high data rates with up to 16 PIV smart card readers while using Open Supervised Device Protocol (OSDP).

uTrust TS Government Readers
Identiv’s uTrust TS Government Readers are the industry’s most flexible and secure intelligent door reader endpoints, enabling agencies to deploy a highly secure U.S. government FICAM CAK at a fraction of the cost of competing solutions. ScramblePad and static keypad models are available.

The readers have RS-485 and Wiegand connections, support PoE power, and can be configured to support thousands of different card technologies. Existing uTrust TS Government Readers are flash upgradeable to enable the FICAM solution without needing to replace current readers.

Identiv’s FICAM solution is faster and less expensive. It provides customers a low-cost, simple to deploy, secure solution for FICAM compliance. The time required to upgrade existing Hirsch Velocity PACS is significantly less than competitor’s solutions, allowing federal agencies to meet rapidly approaching compliance deadlines. The time and cost to deploy new systems or transition from another system is offered at the same extreme value as other Hirsch solutions.
