personal identity verification (PIV) card

Definition(s):

  A physical artifact (e.g., identity card, “smart” card) issued to an individual that contains a PIV Card application that stores identity credentials (e.g., photograph, cryptographic keys, digitized fingerprint representation) so that the claimed identity of the cardholder can be verified against the stored credentials.

FIPS 201-3 under Personal Identity Verification (PIV) Card

  A physical artifact (e.g., identity card, “smart” card) issued to an individual, which contains a PIV Card application that stores indentity credentials (e.g., photograph, cryptographic keys, digitized fingerprint representation) so that the claimed identity of the cardholder can be verified against stored credentials by another person (human-readable and -verifiable) or an automated process (computer-readable and -verifiable).

  Defined by [FIPS 201] as a physical artifact (e.g., identity card, smart card) issued to federal employees and contractors that contains stored credentials (e.g., photograph, cryptographic keys, digitized fingerprint representation) so that the claimed identity of the cardholder can be verified against the stored credentials by another person (human readable and verifiable) or an automated process (computer readable and verifiable).
