HID® ActivID® Credential Management System
Securely issue and manage high assurance credentials
HID Global’s ActivID® Credential Management System (CMS) enables organizations to issue an authentication credential that goes beyond perimeter security. Choose from smart cards, smart tokens or virtual smart cards for secure access to individual workstations and servers within the firewall, as well as VPNs and applications. The high assurance credential can also encrypt data, hard drives, documents and emails, and enable digital signing.
The ActivID Credential Management System is ideal for:
- Medium to large enterprises issuing employees with converged access cards or smart tokens for authentication, data encryption and data signing
- Organizations deploying Personal Identity Verification (PIV) cards and commercial organizations deploying PIV Interoperable (PIV-I) or Commercial Identity Verification (CIV) cards.
- Governments issuing citizens identification cards with PKI-based credentials
ActivID CMS is the only offering in the industry that makes it possible for organizations to create, manage and use a single PKI smart card for both IT and physical access – using a unified solution from a single vendor.
Organizations deploying ActivID CMS are able to securely provision PKI certificates and other credentials to a range of different devices, including smart cards, virtual smart cards, tokens and mobile devices. It is also scalable to millions of credentials in distributed complex environments with multiple user groups. ActivID CMS interfaces with physical access control systems (PACS) to automate the PIV or PIV-I card enrollment process enabling users to use their card to authenticate at the door without the need to re-enroll their card.
