SAIC gets the green light for HSPD-12
Novell continues to make inroads into providing identity management solutions for federal agencies looking to comply with HSPD-12 mandates. HSPD-12 or Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12, establishes a government-wide standard for identification credentials (or smart cards) that deliver a common, two-factor authentication method for accessing physical and logical assets. Just recently, government information technology vendor Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) announced that it, along with its team members, has been awarded a certificate of completion for its HSPD-12 vendor evaluation. Team members include Novell, Honeywell, ImageWare and ActivIdentity.
