What is hspd 12
What is HSPD-12?

  • Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 (HSPD-12) is a mandate for all federal agencies.

  • Issued August 27th, 2004, First Phase took effect October 27th, 2005, Second Phase took effect October 27th, 2006

  • Phase II began with new employees and contractors on 10/27/06 at Frances Perkins Building and Postal Square Building in Washington DC.

  • By 10/27/08 Phase II will apply to all employees and contractors.

What are the goals of hspd 12
What are the goals of HSPD-12?

  • Enhance security

  • Reduce identity fraud

  • Protect personal privacy

  • Provide a secure and reliable form of identification

Why was hspd 12 implemented
Why was HSPD-12 Implemented?

  • Each Federal department and agency has its own standards for ID badges, which vary in consistency and security

  • There may be several badge variations within an agency

Common id badge benefits
Common ID Badge Benefits

Key Benefits:

  • Secure Identification - The ability to authenticate a person’s identity, before issuance of a badge, provides greater identity validation

  • Standardization - Processes and technologies to determine identity and appropriate level of access will be standardized across the government

Piv ii badge issuance requirements
PIV II Badge Issuance Requirements

  • A Sponsor is designated in order to validate that each employee or contractor requires a PIV-II badge.

  • Rigorous identity validation is necessary to minimize identity fraud risk.

  • Expanded background investigation is required; a minimum of a National Agency Check with Written Inquiries (NACI) and a Fingerprint Check.

  • You are required to report theft or loss of your PIV-II badge immediately to your Sponsor.

Piv ii badge security features
PIV-II Badge Security Features

How does your PIV-II badge work?

Your PIV-II badge works

like your current DOL

badge, with these additional security features:

Smart Card

Digital Certificate

  • Smart Card

  • Digital Certificate

  • Biometrics: Primary and Secondary Fingerprints are stored on the badge


Piv ii badge layout
PIV-II Badge Layout

New DOL PIV-II Badges

will include the following


  • Specific tamper-resistant features

  • Standards that will eventually allow badges to be used throughout multiple agencies and locations; (for example, a DOL employee can be validated at a DOL building, and be allowed access to facilities and networks)

  • Uniform print layout and design so badges can be recognized and validated.

  • Biometrics, including fingerprints, to allow two-factor authentication when needed

  • Standard information printed on the badge (photograph, name, Agency, employee/contractor status, expiration date)

  • Two electronic fingerprint captures

  • Unique badge identifier (a number specific to the actual badge)

  • Personal Identification Number (PIN)-a number of your choosing

  • Digital authentication certificate

How will my information be utilized
How will my information be utilized?

  • DOL and other agencies will use the information on the PIV-II Badge and may use some of the stored information about you when you access federal facilities, computers, applications, or data to prove your identity and your right of access.

  • After deactivation (upon separation) this information is kept for a length of time consistent with the applicable records schedule. After that time, if it is not needed for safety or security reasons, or to investigate improper behavior, it is destroyed.

  • If you have additional questions contact your local Enrollment/Issuance center for a list of PIV-II frequently asked questions.

Digital certificate characteristics
Digital Certificate Characteristics

  • Your name

  • A unique identification number

  • An expiration date;

  • A copy of the certificate holder’s public key

  • The digital signature of the Certification Authority

Potential digital certificates uses
Potential Digital Certificates Uses

  • Authentication for physical or logical system access

  • E-mail encryption

  • Digital signature

Personal identification number pin
Personal Identification Number (PIN)

  • Creation and use of PIN activates your PIV-II badge

  • The PIN provides an additional method of authentication

  • The PIN you generate will be stored on the smart card microchip as well as in the HSPD-12 system

Biometric information
Biometric Information

  • Biometric information refers to measurable physical characteristics that can automatically be checked by a device or application.

  • PIV-II standards require two fingerprint captures to be stored on the PIV-II badge.

Fingerprints Scanned

Two fingerprints captured

Fingerprints stored on smartcard microchip

How your fingerprints could be used
How Your Fingerprints Could Be Used

  • Your fingerprint images stored on the badge can be compared to a fingerprint image captured real-time. These fingerprint scanners can be attached to a door or to a computer to control access

  • If the real-time image matches one of the fingerprint images stored on the badge, your identity is authenticated.

Fingerprints stored on badge

Finger scanned via fingerprint scanner

Computer matches fingerprints when accessing computers/buildings

Access granted if fingerprint matches
