New log-in requirements for accessing TAMMS-A

Attention TAMMS-A Users (Logon procedures update):

TAMMS-A WILL REQUIRE PKI CERTIFICATE LOGIN
In accordance with Army Regulation 25-1 and JTF-GNO CTO 07-15, effective 28 Sep 2012, The Army Maintenance Management System - Aviation (TAMMS-A) will begin using PKI authentication requiring a DoD approved digital certificate: an electronic identity credential issued by an external Certification Authority (ECA) that establishes an individualís identity when transacting business electronically.

The DoD has established the External Certificate 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. If you currently have a DoD Common Access Card issued from a local Military Post (MILPO) and an AKO account, you will be able to access TAMMS-A without purchasing a certificate through the ECA program.

IdenTrust has been selected as the preferred vendor for obtaining a digital certificate to access TAMMS-A. The digital certificates will be managed and controlled by IdenTrust Services and can be purchased using the "BUY" button below.

Click on the "BUY" button below for the certificate validity period that suits your needs. Your identification forms will need to be Notarized and the original form with signatures will then need to be mailed following the instructions on the application.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: You have 30 days to retrieve your certificate once your forms are signed. Failure to retrieve your certificate within the 30 day period will require that you re-apply and start again from the beginning.

What ECA Certificate type does TAMMS-A require?

TAMMS-A accepts all three types of ECA Individual Identity Certificates that are listed below. The following is a brief description of the three types of ECA certificates you can chose from. If you need assistance deciding which certificate will best suite your need you can contact the IdenTrust ECA sales team at (866) 299-3335 or ECAsales@identrust.com.

There are software and hardware based ECA certificate options

ECA Medium Assurance: A "Medium Assurance" certificate is a browser based software certificate loaded on to a userís computer browsers certificate store. It is not easily portable from computer to computer. This certificate meets the minimum security requirement for TAMMS-A.

This is a portable certificate and can be used on any computer where the required utilities drivers/middleware have been installed. A Medium Token Assurance certificate is a higher security certificate than a software based certificate.
