Eid Passport Partners with HID Global to Enhance Highest Assurance ID Management Solution

Eid Passport, Inc., a national leader in high-assurance identity management solution providers, will partner with HID Global, a worldwide leader in secure identity solutions, to further enhance its RAPIDGate Premier™ solution to secure physical and digital assets for commercial, government and military organizations.

The partnership will bring the power of HID Global’s pivCLASS® credentialing and card creation technology together with Eid Passport’s leading identity management solution, RAPIDGate Premier. The cards will be securely provisioned using HID Global’s ActivID® Credential Management System (CMS). The complete solution will help organizations quickly identify who they can trust for physical and logical access to critical assets using a PIV-I (Personal Identity Verification-Interoperable) credential.

PIV-I credentials are PKI-based, built on federal standards, and the highest level of identity assurance commercially available. Eid Passport is one of only eight commercial entities currently approved as a PKI provider and authorized to support PIV-I credentials. Furthermore, it is the only entity that integrates background vetting into its initial verification process as well as into recurring screens that happen every 90 days, providing an additional layer of security unmatched by other providers.

“Partnering with HID Global is another opportunity to enhance our best-in-class identity management solutions for commercial, government and military customers,” said Steve Larson, chairman and CEO of Eid Passport. “Integrating their credentialing technology into what we already provide our customers from an identity management perspective provides additional efficiencies and innovation that will benefit end users.”

HID Global’s pivCLASS dual-interface (contact/contactless) technology is a high-security ID solution that provides combined logical and physical access with optimized security through multi-layered authentication. HID Global’s ActivID CMS makes it easy to define and apply policies to manage data, applets, and digital certificates across the entire lifecycle of an identity.
