HID pivCLASS Readers

Meet any security area assurance level and the NIST SP 800-116 guidelines



The pivCLASS® solutions portfolio includes a broad selection of contactless, contact and contactless, and biometric readers. These readers are designed to work with the pivCLASS Authentication Module (PAM) to meet the assurance level requirements defined in the NIST Special Publication 800-116 and in the federal government’s ICAM E-PACS document. The pivCLASS readers can be deployed in either “Wiegand” mode PAM mode. Wiegand mode is for use without a PAM. While this mode does not provide any strong authentication at the door it does provide a phased deployment capability to support transition to FIPS 201 compliance. Conversion from Wiegand mode to PAM mode can be done in the field by reconfiguring the reader firmware. Up to two pivCLASS readers can connect to a PAM via four-wire RS-485 connections, typically enabling facilities to re-use much of their existing wiring.

Key features of the pivCLASS readers include:

  • Contactless reader solution that meets NIST’s “Controlled” security area assurance level requirements for single-factor authentication (i.e., CHUID or CAK)
  • Contact and contactless reader solution that meets NIST’s “Limited” security area assurance level requirements for two-factor authentication (i.e., PKI+PIN). These readers also support CHUID or CAK authentication over the contact interface; a useful backup capability for when a cardholder’s contactless card antenna is not working.
  • Biometric reader solution that meets NIST’s “Exclusion” assurance level requirements for three factor authentication (i.e., PKI+PIN+BIO). This reader can be dynamically reconfigured to support one, two or three factor authentication. The TWIC authentication modes CHUID+BIO and CAK+BIO are also supported.
  • The pivCLASS readers support multiple FIPS 201 based cards: PIV, PIV-I, CIV, CAC, TWIC and FRAC
