Department of Defense Secure Access File Exchange (SAFE) is a web-based tool that provides authenticated DoD CAC users and guests (unauthenticated users) the capability to securely send and receive large files, including files that are too large to be transmitted via email.
DoD SAFE makes it easy for you to exchange unclassified files up to 8.0 GB that can't be sent through email.
Guests can receive files from CAC users, and (only if CAC users requested files) send files to CAC users. Notification is achieved via email notifications.
DoD SAFE has an ATO and is approved for transfer of FOR OFFICAL USE ONLY (FOUO), Personally Identifiable Information (PII), and Protected Health Information (PHI) data. DoD SAFE utilizes the latest web browser encryption transport protocols to secure files when they are in transit. Files uploaded into SAFE can be encrypted at rest if the sender selects the corresponding check box on the DoD SAFE site. DoD SAFE users are responsible for ensuring they encrypt FOUO, PII, and PHI data. DoD SAFE is for UNCLASSIFIED USE ONLY.
