3M Cogent announced that the U.S. General Services Administration, in accordance with FIPS 201, has certified its MiY-ID Gov biometric access control reader as an approved biometric authentication system standard.
At a high-level, the Biometric Authentication System performs: one-to-one biometric match, validation of the biometric signer’s certificate and interfacing with Online Certificate Status Protocol (OCSP) and Server-based Certificate Validation Protocol (SVCP).
MiY-ID is 3M Cogent’s biometric access control reader. As new security standards emerge, organizations are looking for a security product that meets current physical access control system standards for PIV, CAC, TWIC, and others. 3M Cogent’s MiY-ID-Gov enables them to meet current standards and adapt to changing standards without having to replace their PACS readers.
