Personal Identification Verification (PIV) Credentials

On Aug. 27, 2004, President George W. Bush signed Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 (HSPD-12) requiring federal agencies to develop and deploy for their contract personnel and employees a Personal Identity Verification (PIV) credential that is secure, reliable and interoperable among all federal agencies.

As part of the implementation of HSPD-12, the Office of Management and Budget requires all federal agencies to post on their public Web sites quarterly status reports on the number of PIV credentials issued.
