NIST, A Recommendation for the Use of PIV Credentials in Physical Access Control Systems (PACS) (NIST Special Publication 800-116) (Nov. 2008) (full-text).

Overview Edit

This publication provides best practice guidelines for integrating the PIV card with the physical access control systems (PACS) that authenticate the cardholders at federal facilities. Specifically, this publication discusses various PIV card capabilities, so that risk-based assessments can be made and appropriate PIV authentication mechanisms selected to manage physical access to federal government facilities. This document also proposes a PIV implementation maturity model to measure the progress of agencies’ PIV implementations and recommends an overall strategy for agency implementation of PIV authentication mechanisms within PACS systems.
