The Defense Innovation Unit (DIU) is interested in using commercial multifactor authentication to facilitate secure access to industrial systems not directly connected to U.S. military networks, C4ISRnet reported Friday.

DIU is in search of a tool that would verify identities on platforms not accessible via a military-issued common access card.

The organization said in a source sought to notice it requires a tool to protect the military's access to non-government, cloud-based information systems within the commercial sector.

These commercial systems are not linked to the Department of Defense's CAC, and thus require DOD to use alternative means of secure access. DIU intends to this tool to securely collaborate with commercial partners.
