FIPSlink Desktop Validation

FIPSlink Validation Client is a PC-based solution for three-factor authentication,  verifying FIPS 201 credential data and matching a live biometric  against the templates stored on the card. Digital certificates are verified against the issuer’s validation authority, SCVP or OCSP responder. All cards are validated using FIPS 201 challenge-response (CAK or PAK) in order to identify forged or cloned cards. Works with all PIV, PIV-I, TWIC, CAC, and FRAC cards. The results of Validation are logged in FIPSlink and can be logged (via FIPSlink Server) into compatible PACS. PACS can also be queried to provide access granted or access denied output that is then displayed within the FIPSlink Validation Client.
