DoD Acceptance and Use of Personal Identity Verification-Interoperable (PIV-I) Credentials
DoD CIO Memo - Publish Date: 10/05/10
This Department of Defense Deputy Chief Information Officer memorandum establishes the DoD's position on acceptance and use of qualified Personal Identity Verification Interoperable (PIV-I) credentials for access to DoD logical and physical resources. Where appropriate, DoD relying parties (e.g., DoD installation commanders or information systems owners) should accept electronically validated PIV-I credentials for authentication and access to DoD physical or logical resources. This memo identifies two exceptions where PIV-I credentials are not authorized for authentication and access. The attachment to the memorandum outlines the process that shall be used in qualifying PIV-I credentials for use in the Department of Defense.
