SAIC signs on security vendor
Science Applications International Corp. of San Diego has agreed to partner with Priva Technologies Inc. to provide end-to-end authentication solutions to government agencies, the companies announced this month.
Dunn Loring, Va.-based Priva has developed what it calls the Cleared Security Platform, an auditable, customizable authentication infrastructure that builds on traditional multifactor approaches.
The platform consists of a secure ClearedKey USB biometric token and ClearedHost authentication server. Unlike other biometric readers that users can plug into their PCs, the ClearedKey has an on-board processor that extends the trusted security platform all the way to the biometric reader level.
