SLB Selected by DoD for CAC SET-D

Don't worry. It makes sense

Austin, TX  September 20, 2001  SchlumbergerSema today announced that Logicon has acquired nearly 60,000 of its advanced Reflex smart card readers for the U.S. Army's implementation of the Department of Defense (DoD) Common Access Card (CAC) program. This new order follows the news that EDS purchased 600,000 of its Java-based Cyberflex Access smart cards for the overall DoD CAC program.

"The U.S. Army's Secure Electronic Transactions  Devices (SET-D) Program Office chose the Reflex smart card readers after an internal evaluation and testing process," said John Gist, Logicon's program manager for the General Services Administration (GSA) Smart Access Common ID Card contract. "Readers are an integral part of smart card deployments to secure the link between users and networks." Gist noted that the contract represents the largest single deployment of smart card readers in the United States to date and the first time the GSA contract has been used by one of the services to support its smart card requirements.

The U.S. Army will utilize the Reflex 72 USB and Reflex 20 PCMCIA readers, which connect with desktop and portable PCs to authenticate smart cards used for secure network access, as part of their implementation of the DoD CAC program. The DoD CAC program is using highly secure, multiple application smart cards  such as the SchlumbergerSema Cyberflex Access card  for physical identification, building access and network access in a multi-tiered program that is being rolled out throughout the DoD over the next few years. Both types of SchlumbergerSema Reflex readers are compliant with PS/SC standards to utilize the smart card handling capabilities of Microsoft Windows.

SchlumbergerSema Reflex readers and Cyberflex Access smart cards are part of the company's portfolio of smart card-based total solutions for information security, e-transactions and other applications used by government agencies, mobile communication operators, financial institutions, corporations and other types of businesses.
