January 17 '08: Core Street announced a partnership with the Los Angles Urban Area Security Initiative in 2006 to use the company's PIVMAN System credential verification technology. The PIVMAN System was selected by SuperCom, now known as Vuance.
"The PIVMAN System was chosen as part of a three-agency Mobile Credentialing System for its ability to read and accurately determine the status and privileges associated with any Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS 201) credential in any environment, with or without network connectivity," the press release wrote.The PIVMAN System technology can be uploaded into "rugged handheld devices and back-end servers designed to quickly verify information on cardholders, without the need for special pre-enrollment procedures. Essentially, if an individual has been issued a FIPS 201-compliant card, then that individual is in the PIVMAN System," the Core Street said. Having a credentialing verification system working in the field helps to increase the efficiency and flow of communications, resources, and manpower during a response operation. Earlier last year, officials in the National Capital Region tested credentialling services during the "Winter Storm" responder authentication exercise.
