Homeland Security


Recent Homeland Security Directives Reinforce Fargo’s Standing as Premier Secure Card Issuance Vendor and we can help with your implementation.

On February 25, 2005, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), after approval by the Secretary of Commerce pursuant to the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) of 2002, issued the Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) Publication 201: Personal Identity Verification (PIV) of Federal Employees and Contractors. The Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 (HSPD12) directed the development of this Federal standard for secure and reliable forms of identification for Federal employees and contractors. It further specified secure and reliable identification that

  • Is issued based on sound criteria for verifying an individual employee’s identity.
  • Is strongly resistant to identity fraud, tampering, counterfeiting and terrorist exploitation.
  • Can be rapidly authenticated electronically.
  • Is issued only by providers whose reliability has been established by an official accreditation process.
