DOW JONES NEWSWIRES

Diebold Inc. (DBD) was certified by the General Services Administration to deliver security integration services that meet the requirements of the Homeland Security Department.

The North Canton, Ohio, company said the certification specifically allows it to get contracts related to Federal Information Processing Standards 201, the law requiring the government to deploy a common identification system for all federal employees and contractors.

The identification card which federal agencies must produce has already been created, and Diebold hopes to be involved in the process of deploying it and making it work.

The company said its “identity management experts” can help federal agencies with both “physical access control systems” and “logical access control systems.”

Diebold’s shares recently traded down 10 cents to $46.29.
