Draft policy pushes interagency committee to better address building security (Strategy and Planning)

The draft Identity, Credential, and Access Management (ICAM) policy update hits many of the right notes, rescinds five outdated policies and clearly addresses where the future of identity management is heading in the federal government. Agencies shall ensure that use of the PIV credential for physical access to federal buildings are implemented in accordance with The Risk Management Process for Federal Facilities: An Interagency Security Committee Standard and NIST SP 800-116, A Recommendation for the Use of PIV Credentials in Physical Access Control Systems (PACS),” the draft policy states. The General Services administration also will work with the National Institute of Standard and Technology, the Office of Personnel Management and the Homeland Security Department to develop and publish a physical access control system (PACS) security and privacy control overlay to help agencies identify core controls for PACS.
