With access credentials a natural physical/logical convergence point, several vendors at ISC West and RSA 2010 last month were emphasizing new or enhanced capabilities for managing converged credentials.

At ISC, Hirsch Electronics demonstrated how its Velocity security management software can be integrated with Active Directory and digital certificate authorities to enable one-stop issuing of a smart card for both physical and logical access control.

At RSA, Microsoft's introduction of Forefront Identity Manager 2010 highlighted that tool's support for certificate issuance and credential management systems.

Further, ActivIdentity, a leader in smart card technology, told Security Squared at ISC West that "one stop issuance" is gaining solid traction as a more efficient means of credential management. It's in conversations with leading access control system vendors interested in private labeling its credential management capabilities, said Jerome Becquart, vice president, products and services, for the Fremont, Calif.-based company.
