September 30, 2014, The FBI's Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS), the primary central repository for criminal justice information, will require law enforcement personnel to use advanced authentication methods when logging in to the CJIS database.
The very nature of the data contained in the CJI database, including fingerprint records, criminal histories, and sex offender registrations, makes it a prime target for cyber criminals and hackers. To counter these security risks caused by over-reliance on weak password-based authentication, the CJIS Security Policy now requires the use of advanced authentication.
Gemalto has identified four critical steps to implement advanced
authentication. Supporting brochures and video will help you get a more
detailed plan of action.
