The National Institute of Standards and Technology released two special publications related to personal identity verification (PIV) cards at the end of last week.
The first is a full release of special publication 800-85B, PIV Data Model Conformance Test Guidelines. The guidelines apply to testing data on PIV cards. It also includes tests for verifying public-key infrastructure certificates on the cards.
The second publication is a draft of special publication 800-96, PIV Card/Reader Interoperability. The draft provides guidelines for PIV interoperability between cards and readers. It covers a variety of readers, including contact and contactless logical access readers and physical-access readers.
