SureID provides high-assurance identity solutions to critical infrastructure facilities with the same technology our partners in the Department of Defense rely on.
Since 1997, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has enforced the Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS) mandate. CFATS established its eighteen (18) Risk-Based Performance Standards (RBPS) to identify areas on which a facility’s security posture will be examined, including:
To meet RBPS, high-risk chemical facilities are free to choose whichever security programs or processes they deem appropriate. The DHS has explicitly advised high-risk facilities to make personnel surety to be a key component of a successful chemical facility security program.
The Chemical Sector-Specific Plan details a risk management framework for each critical infrastructure sector. Each sector has a unique set of characteristics and risk landscape, though identity assurance and physical access control systems (PACS) are universal throughout. The Department of Homeland Security is designated the sector-specific agency for the Chemical Sector.
SureID provides high-assurance identity solutions that provide personnel surety to high-risk chemical facilities. As the identity leader in the Personal Identity Verification – Interoperable (PIV-I) credentialing process, SureID brings the world’s best identity assurance processes to any high-security facility.
Alongside our partners in the Department of Defense, SureID has issued more than 200,000 PIV-I credentials to vendors, contractors, suppliers, and other third parties that require both physical and logical access into military installations. SureID’s rigorous PIV-I identity standards meet and exceed the CFATS mandate, and high-risk chemical facilities can rely on the same multifactor authentication identity solutions that the Department of Defense uses every day.
SureID, Inc. is a U.S. federal government-approved level of assurance 4 (LOA4) identity provider for PIV-I credentials, which is the highest assurance level as defined by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Trusted by the U.S. military for over a decade, SureID is the leading PIV-I issuer in the nation with more than 190,000 credentials issued to date.
