deploying a mix of PIV and CIV credentials throughout its Tennessee facilities. The new smart card credentials will be used for physical and logical access, says John Watson, group manager for the Laboratory Protection Division System at Oak Ridge. The lab went with the PIV smart cards for those employees who travel and need to use the credentials for access to other facilities, while CIV credentials will be for those who are just using the cards on site. The CIV credentials were less expensive than the PIV, Watson says.
