DALLAS, Aug. 30 (UPI) -- Subscription-based authentication services for U.S. law enforcement agencies accessing the FBI's CJIS database are now on offer.

Under an FBI policy enacted last year, law enforcement agencies must use advanced authentication -- such as biometric systems, smartcard and software tokens -- by October 2013 to verify the identities of officers or individuals accessing the CJIS database from non-secure locations.

Heartland Business Systems and Entrust Inc. said they can provide the authentication service leveraging Entrust's authentication framework technology.

"Entrust has a long, successful history with law enforcement agencies in the deployment of identity-based security for authentication, encryption and credentialing," said Entrust President and Chief Executive Officer Bill Conner.

"Our partnership with Heartland Business Systems is a critical step that will enable these agencies to easily and cost-effectively comply with the FBI's CJIS policy -- all via a single security management framework."

The companies said their turnkey authentication system provides for a number of authentication options to meet unique user requirements.
