Comply with mandates for secure access to DoD information systems
The DoD has established the External Certification Authority (ECA) program to support the issuance of DoD-approved certificates to industry partners and other external entities and organizations. The ECA program is designed to provide the mechanism for these entities to securely communicate with the DoD and authenticate to DoD information systems.
A comprehensive portfolio of DoD ECA digital certificates
IdenTrust works directly with the DoD Program Office to make it as simple as possible for users to obtain the correct ECA certificate. By establishing relationships with the application owners, we know exactly what type of ECA certificate the application requires. Through our self-service model, IdenTrust enables individuals to order the appropriate ECA certificate with any required hardware (i.e., smart card or USB Token) and required middleware in a single process.
Organizations may purchase vouchers in larger quantities that can then be provided to individual employees. This allows the organization to track costs, reduce credit card reimbursements to employees and track who is using ECA digital certificates.
Since hardware is shipped directly to the individual who is ordering the certificate, the organization does not need to maintain or track hardware inventory. In addition, the additional cost of shipping smart cards or USB Tokens to users is eliminated.
To ensure that employees are able to seamlessly use their ECA certificate, IdenTrust provides world-class technical support at no extra cost!
