Nextgov: Researchers: Flaws in Vendor Security Software could leave some Federal Buildings Vulnerable

“Researchers at cybersecurity firm Tenable have discovered a number of previously unknown vulnerabilities in the access control systems of an ID card manufacturer and service provider used by federal agencies, including the Executive Office of the President.”

“In 2017, OPM took over as the largest federal customer for IDenticard with a “large purchase of credential supplies” totaling about $56,000, according to Govini research, which included card stock, laminated pouches and other supplies but not necessarily software and ongoing services.”

“Since fiscal 2014, nine agencies have contracted with IDenticard for software and services including PremiSys for a total of $73,000 over the last four years. Those agencies include the General Services Administration, Executive Office of the President, Navy, Army, Environmental Protection Agency, and the Labor, Veterans Affairs, Interior and Health and Human Services departments.” Read the full article here.
