FAQ Question
What do I need to do before I apply for my certificate? 
FAQ Answer

A digital certificate is a form of ID, just like a Driver’s License or Passport. We need to verify your identity before we can approve your application and issue your certificate.

Here is a list of what you will need to provide:
• Two forms of approved, valid (unexpired) ID, one of which must be a photo ID. Examples include a Passport, Certificate of Naturalization, Drivers License or State ID, CAC Card, and U.S. issued Birth Certificate. View our PDF document Identity Verification Requirements DoD ECA Certificate Policy for details.
• The Headquarters' address for your organization.
• The name of the agency or agencies you will use your certificate to interact with.
• Voucher Number: The voucher code you have been provided.
