Entrust at RSA: Advanced Authentication for CJIS Compliance

Part 8 of 9 in the Series — Entrust at RSA Conference 2013

Advanced Authentication for CJIS Compliance | Entrust | RSA Conference 2013

While this topic may not directly impact everyone, the policy and technology being implemented in law enforcement could provide blueprints for other industries or verticals to leverage advanced authentication solutions for properly verifying all manners of digital and device identities.

Specifically, we’re talking about the Criminal Justice Information Services Security Policy, commonly referred to as simply “CJIS.”

At Entrust Booth 1139 at RSA this week, Entrust authentication expert Mike Moir outlined cost-effective methods for implementing advanced authentication to ensure CJIS compliance.

Under FBI guidelines, police cruisers are considered unsecure and the use of advanced authentication is required to verify identities prior to accessing the CJIS database.

Moir explains the purpose of CJIS, explores the different policy areas within the guidelines, and reviews the FBI’s definition of “advanced authentication,” which may include biometric systems, user-based public key infrastructure (PKI), smartcards, software tokens, hardware tokens or paper (inert) tokens.

What’s most intriguing is Moir’s deep-dive into the mobile methods law enforcement may leverage to really streamline the identity-assurance process.
