DISA Moves to Digitize Common Access Card Credentials

1 min read

The Defense Information Systems Agency has implemented a program that works to integrate credentials from common access cards into mobile devices, Federal News Radio reported Wednesday.

David Thornton writes Jeremy Corey, lead engineer for the Defense Department‘s public key infrastructure, said DISA’s Purebred program is a key management server with an application installed on a mobile device.

Corey added Purebred derives user’s credentials based on certificates placed on CACs.

The program also works to reduce the time it takes to input a credential into a digital device from 22 minutes to three minutes, Thornton reported.

Purebred is available for iOS, Android and BlackBerry phones as well as tablets.
