Mobile ID with the Edgeline PIV
The Personal Identity Verification (PIV) module is an all-in-one accessory that enables
Intermec CN3 and CN4 series mobile computers to authenticate personnel via multiple
methods. The PIV module incorporates a biometric fingerprint reader, a magnetic stripe
reader, a smart card reader and a contactless smart card reader into a single snap-on
solution. sed with Intermec CN3 and CN4 series mobile computers, the PIV module provides
maximum flexibility for applications that demand a multi-step authentication process
for access to restricted areas or to highly confidential information. The solution
can help federal agencies meet personnel identification requirements driven by Homeland
Security directives, as well as assist state and local government with meeting similar
needs in Mass Casualty Incident (MCI) and emergency response situations. The PIV
accessory is designed for quick and easy snap-on attachment to the host device, and
can also be more permanently affixed for long term applications. The CN3 and CN4
Single Dock or Multi Dock enables charging and communication with the mobile computer,
via Ethernet and USB client, while the module is attached.
Drivers license identification methods vary from state to state, from use of magnetic
stripes to bar codes to smart cards. Fingerprinting is also becoming more commonly
used when positive identification is needed. The PIV module provides law enforcement
officers with fast and flexible access to the data they need from multiple sources.
The PIV solution can be used to authenticate First Responders within a restricted
site and limit access to others, so that site control can be improved. The solution
can also be used by EMT personnel to identify, record and treat those people affected
by a disaster.
