GSA Card Conformance Tool
Last Update: May 10, 2021
The Card Conformance Tool (CCT) is a GSA managed, Java tool hosted on GitHub that can verify that a Personal Identity Verification (PIV) or PIV-Interoperable (PIV-I) conforms to the PIV data model per current releases of related standards, including:
- FIPS 201: PIV of Federal Employees and Contractors
- NIST SP 800-73: Interfaces for Personal Identity Verification
- NIST SP 800-76: Biometric Specifications for Personal Identity Verification
- NIST SP 800-78: Cryptographic Algorithms and Key Sizes for Personal Identity Verification
The CCT, in conjunction with the Certificate Profile Conformance Tool (CPCT), also facilitates remote PIV and PIV-I testing in support of FPKI annual reviews, reducing travel and resource time and costs. To request an official report on your CPCT and CCT results, fill out the Annual PIV Credential Issuer (PCI) Testing Application Form and send it with outputs and testing artifacts to fips201ep at gsa.gov.
