THE CHALLENGE

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is an agency of the United States Department of Transportation and has the authority to regulate and oversee all aspects of civil aviation in the US.

With over 47,000 permanent employees in many different locations distributed over a wide area, its aim is to provide “the safest, most efficient aerospace system in the world”.

As a US federal agency, the FAA was mandated to use PIV cards for secure identity management in order to meet the requirements of HSPD-12. As well as adhering to the FIPS 201 standard, any solution would also have to align with FAA’s current business practices, be flexible enough to adapt to evolving business and security policy requirements, and have the ability to facilitate physical access control (PACS) and logical access control (LACS).
