CJIS Advanced Authentication Mandate and how eAgentX2 works

The Criminal Justice Information System (CJIS) provides state, local, and federal law enforcement and criminal justice agencies with access to critical, personal information such as fingerprint records, criminal histories, and sex offender registrations. In order to prevent unauthorized access to this extremely sensitive information, a security policy governing the access to the CJIS database was enacted on January 1, 2011. CJIS compliance information was set in a mandate released by the FBI. The mandate sets forth the minimum requirements for securing access to the data included within CJIS. The policy requires “Advanced Authentication”, or multi-factor authentication, to be implemented across all those that agencies that access the information contained in the CJIS database. CJIS compliance will affect many organizations and many departments. Public safety, judicial, and correctional institutions must comply or face administrative sanctions and/or criminal penalties.

How eAgentX2 works

  • Compliance with FBI CJIS security policy requirements
  • Rapid setup and user deployment
  • Ability to interface through a web SSL or VPN client
  • Integration with RADIUS, Active Directory and LDAP (or we can do a custom backend integration)
  • Several methods available for second authentication factor like SMS text, phone app, grid card and hard token.
