ASSA ABLOY has received approval to utilise its integrated locking solutions on U.S. federal government access control Federal Identify, Credential, and Access Management (FICAM) applications.
This significant milestone was reached after a lengthy and detailed government and third-party security vulnerability and interoperability testing process.
Access control locks
The following products are now on the General Services Administration’s (GSA) FIPS 201 Evaluation Program Approved Product List (APL):
These integrated access control locks feature Open Supervised Device Protocol (OSDP) technology that allows for secure channel, serial communication between the reader, and Physical Access Control System (PACS). These products were tested and approved by the U.S federal government in conjunction with the LenelS2 OnGuard access control system, including the LNL-X4420 intelligent controller with the embedded HID pivCLASS authentication Module.
Card reader technology
“We’re excited to expand our suite of FICAM-approved solutions for OnGuard access control system customers,” said Derek Greenland, Director, Federal Government Solutions, LenelS2. “The ASSA ABLOY integrated locks for doors and server cabinets provide high-quality choices for government facilities implementing FICAM controls to protect critical assets.”
“We are excited to be able to offer government facilities more options to expand their PACS,” said Jeff Huggins, Vice President Government Programs, ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions. “Having these specific integrated OSDP access control locks approved for applications mandated by the Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 (HSPD-12), along with our varying wireless, WiFi and PoE locking options, make it easier and more affordable to support the use and implementation of card reader technology deeper into each facility, even server cabinet doors.”
