1.0 Overview

NovellĀ® has partnered with third-party companies to build a solution that offers an integrated logical and physical control system that complies with Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 (HSPD-12). HSPD-12 directs the implementation of a new standardized badging process, which is designed to enhance security, reduce identity fraud, and protect the personal privacy of users who are issued government identification.

Identity Assurance Solution provides a complete system for managing the enrollment, issuance, access control, and retirement of Personal Identification Verification (PIV) cards. This solution is in compliance with the Federal Information Processing Standards Publication 201 (FIPS 201) and provides components such as an Identity Management System (IDMS), a User Enrollment/Biometric Capture system, a Card Management System (CMS), and Logical and Physical Access Control Systems (LACS/PACS).

During the installation of the Identity Assurance Solution, several roles are created. These roles and their associated tasks are based on the General Services Administration (GSA) standards. Those users who are assigned to these roles can perform their tasks by using the User Application for Provisioning through a Web browser.

This document outlines the roles and tasks performed by each role for the Identity Assurance Solution.
