RESTON, Va., Oct. 12, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — IDEMIA, the world-leading provider of secure identity and biometric solutions, announced today the development of a secure, standards-based converged access card for the enterprise access market, in collaboration with HYPR, the identity assurance company that’s become the gold-standard in passwordless authentication, and Wavelynx, a leader in secure and interoperable reader and credential solutions. The creation of this one-of-a-kind smart credential will help organizations meet compliance and regulatory requirements and security best practices.
This new converged access card serves as one badge for both physical and network access based on open and interoperable standards, using secure phishing-resistant technologies for authentication of the credentials. The card has a FIPS-certified PIV applet, a FIDO™ Certified passkey with MIFARE® DESFire® support to interface with next-gen access control readers based on the LEAF protocol, as well as a Prox interface to support legacy access control readers. Combining various state-of-the-art industry standards and protocols into one credential allows organizations to progress on their security convergence and zero trust evolution.
“Our partnership with HYPR and Wavelynx cements the shift to converge cyber and physical security, as recommended by organizations like Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA),” said Teresa Wu, VP, Smart Credentials, IDEMIA Identity and Security North America.
