The DoD is transitioning to one common authentication (logon) certificate on CACs called the Personal Identity Verification (PIV) Authentication. The PIV_Auth certificate is mandated as the new standard for NIPRNET network, web, and application login. Users will no longer have to choose between e-mail and identity certificates when logging in. This modification will establish continuity across federal and mission partner organizations with regard to the use of DoD Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) certificates.


All Navy personnel to include contractors, Foreign Liaisons/Officers and REL - A NIPRNet users who have not received a new CAC since 24 February 2018 and/or cannot see their PIV_Auth certificate, must follow the procedures on the Navy Marine Corps Internet Homeport,( https://www.homeport.navy.mil/cms/preview/21094), and Information Security Online Services, (https://infosec.navy.mil/PKI/).

These procedures will instruct users on how to activate the PIV_Auth certificate via the Defense Manpower Data Center (DMDC) Real-Time Automated Personal Identification Systems (RAPIDS) Self-Service website, https://www.dmdc.osd.mil/self_service.

Note: If you are on a Windows workstation outside of NMCI that is not using ActivClient middleware then you may not be able to activate your PIV_Auth certificate and this certificate may not be available to Windows. Please coordinate with your System Administrator to obtain ActivClient or other potential options.


All web applications hosted by NAVY 311 current accept a PIV_Auth certificate for authentication. However, as of 29 February 2020, these applications will be configured to enforce the use of only this PIV_Auth certificate for logon and authentication. Previous authentication certificates will no longer be valid and accepted as of that date.
