SureID provides high-assurance identity solutions to critical infrastructure facilities with the same technology our partners in the Department of Defense rely on.
The nation’s transportation system quickly, safely, and securely moves people and goods through the country and overseas.
The Transportation Systems Sector consists of seven key subsectors, or modes:
Recently, a push has been made by Transportation Systems Sector owners and operators to apply the tenets of the National Institute of Standards and Technology Cybersecurity Framework to help reduce cyber risks. Specifically, organizations may use the implementation guidance to:
Through internal malicious actors as well as outside threats, both physical and logical threats represent persistent vulnerabilities within the transportation system network.
The Transportation Systems Sector-Specific Plan details a risk management framework for each critical infrastructure sector. Each sector has a unique set of characteristics and risk landscape through identity assurance and physical access control systems (PACS).
Each Sector-Specific Agency develops a sector-specific plan through a coordinated effort involving its public and private sector partners. The Postal and Shipping Sector was consolidated within the Transportation Systems Sector in 2013 under Presidential Policy Directive 21 (PPD-21) whereas the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Transportation are designated as the Co-Sector-Specific Agencies for the Transportation Systems Sector.
SureID provides high-assurance identity solutions that provide personnel surety to the variety of facilities throughout the transportation sector. 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 PPD-21 requirements mandate, and all transportation sector 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.
