RSA Wins HSPD-12 Contract

RSA Card Manager is a smart card management system designed to help federal agencies comply with HSPD-12

BEDFORD, Mass. -- Approved by the U.S. General Services Administration for use in HSPD-12 environments, RSA Card Manager software helps enable government agencies to both issue personal identity verification (PIV) cards to agency employees and manage the lifecycle of credentials stored on these cards. This is another significant HSPD-12 win for RSA, following an earlier announced win with the Environmental Protection Agency.

RSA Card Manager is a smart card management system designed to help federal agencies comply with HSPD-12. As required for GSA approval, RSA Card Manager is engineered to be an interoperable system that supports a broad range of third-party HSPD-12 solution components, including PIV-II cards, biometrics technology, hardware security modules and externally managed public key infrastructure offered by approved Shared Service Providers. An interoperable solution helps ensure that customers can leverage existing technology investments and benefit from vendor flexibility while supporting efforts to address HSPD-12 requirements.
