The Mandylion password manager
solution was borne by the Federal requirements for proper
password management. The technology was matured
under a Department of Defense research program
seeking practical solutions to password overload.
It is now available to all Federal Agencies.
Mandylion’s technology was designed in
conformity with U.S. Military, National Institute
of Standards and Technology and National Security
Agency standards for the secure creation,
management and use of passwords. All units comply
with DoD information security guidelines D8500.1
and D8500.2; US Army Regulation 25-2IA; FIPS Pub.
Nos. 112,190 and 196 and NIST Special Publication
800-63 titled “ Electronic Authentication
Guideline. (9/04); NSA and Committee on National
Security Systems (CNSSS) National Security
Telecom Information Security Systems Policy No.
11 (NSTISSP #11).
Stringent technology and procedural requirements
have been placed on Federal Agencies with the
enactment of the Federal Information Security
Management Act (FISMA). Through this FISMA
compliance work a unique body of knowledge is
emerging; a maturing view that there is no “one
size fits all” solution to Federal authentication.
As these Agencies are modifying their
infrastructures to be in accordance with FISMA,
many are discovering that alternatives to
passwords are not always practical or cost/risk
According to recent Gartner Group studies,
authentication should be viewed as more of a
spectrum of requirements for which an enterprise
should seek a blend of solutions. On one end, a
particular login may warrant a complex and costly
authentication solution, on the other
end, no authentication at all. Passwords reside
in the middle and, according to these experts,
will continue to be the dominant form of
authentication for routine logins for the
