HID Global’s pivCLASS Reader Services software application is required to manage the pivCLASS Authentication Module (PAM). Using Reader Services, the administrator can select the reader types to be controlled by a PAM for specific doors or other access points. It is also used to set the authentication modes on a per door basis in each PAM. Reader Services is used to download PAM firmware updates and to configure periodic downloading of updated credential status files (which are then cached locally on each PAM).
