DON Global Address List Fully Synched
Published, August 12, 2013
The Department of the Navy now has its first-ever, fully synchronized USN/USMC Global Address List (GAL). The DON GAL allows USN/USMC personnel to quickly locate contact information and to send digitally signed and encrypted emails. The GAL contains contact information for users from both services and is updated daily to ensure accuracy. This enables a seamless use of encrypted and digitally signed e-mails between the Navy and the Marine Corps.
Previously, the two separate GALS (USN and USMC) had different configurations making automatic synchronization difficult. The next step is to engage with DoD CIO and DISA to determine a way ahead to synchronize with the larger DoD GAL.
