A common perception of many who have heard of the US Government’s Personal Identity Verification (PIV) credential is that this technology’s usefulness is limited to the US Government. This perception is incorrect.

By policy “PIV” credentials can only be issued to federal employees and some federal contractors. This policy has resulted in variations of the PIV credential for other use cases. The Commercial Identity Verification (CIV) credential is suitable for non-US Government use. Examples include commercial enterprises, state and local governments, foreign governments and critical infrastructure facilities.

The white paper, “Using PIV Technology outside of the US Government” describes how to identify if the PIV technology is right for your logical access and or physical access control applications.
