Eid Passport Inc. has achieved cross-certification with the CertiPath PKI Bridge.
The CertiPath PKI Bridge serves as the central hub that enables participating organizations to collaborate and share information on a global basis with high confidence that their information and physical assets are properly protected. The CertiPath Bridge eliminates the process of individually mapping a direct trust relationship between one PKI and another PKI.
According to Eid Passport, it is the largest commercial provider of U.S. Department of Defense issued credentials and this new certification means the company is now authorized to issue PIV-I credentials to better serve pent up demand by its military, commercial and critical infrastructure customers.
“Cross-certification with CertiPath’s PKI Bridge is a game changer for our business,” Steve Larson, Eid Passport’s chairman and CEO said. “As our customers increasingly demand greater identity assurance solutions, cross-certified managed PKI is a critical step in the process. It helps them better meet PIV-I compliance standards that are delivered in a streamlined and cost-effective manner.”
Last month, Eid Passport was named one of the 2013 Fastest Growing Private 100 Companies by the Portland Business Journal.
“Creating a high-assurance identity management framework for government and commercial organizations requires the application of solid business processes and the implementation of state-of-the-art credentialing technology,” Jeff Nigriny, CEO of CertiPath said. “Eid Passport has the expertise to process and issue high assurance PIV-I credentials to meet the growing demands of its customers.”
