Detailed information About Walk-Ins

Our NEW/Returning Customers Procedures & Processes have changed:

  • Customers will now create individual accounts at our site to make certificate requests and download certificates to enhance security.
  • The request process and the process to download software-based certificates will be browser-independent.
  • Hardware-based certificates will use a proprietary app to download the certificates onto smartcards or USB tokens instead of a browser.  Subscribers will still need ActivClient Software to work with this proprietary app.
  • Subscribers for ECA Medium Assurance, ECA Medium Token Assurance, and ECA Medium Hardware Assurance Client Certificates and for both levels of Code Signing Certificates will no longer generate enrollment keys or RSA Keys with the request forms.  The enrollment keys (also called private keys) and RSA Keys will be generated at the end of the process; those keys will be generated and the certificates will be downloaded all at one time.
  • The previous point means that ECA Medium Assurance (software-based) Certificate Subscribers will only have one opportunity to save backup copies of their certificates to recover them if a computer crash occurs; so, they need to carefully follow the instructions when downloading their certificates and setting the password for their certificates and the backup copies.

What You’ll Need

Before making client certificate requests, you MUST know all of the DoD systems you will need to access to get at least the minimum level of assurance of ECA Certificate you’ll need to access ALL of those sites.

NOTE: Defense Intelligence Information Enterprise (DI2E) Site, requires different access levels within the site which may make your level of ECA Certificate vary you MUST  be approved by the web site manager for every level of access.

The various levels of ECA Client Certificates are listed below from highest level of assurance to lowest level of assurance:

  • ECA Medium Hardware Assurance (hardware-based; requires an appointment with an LRA for the request process and certificate download process)
  • ECA Medium Token Assurance (hardware-based; can be done at the subscriber’s office for the request process and the certificate download process)
  • ECA Medium Assurance (software-based; can be done at the subscriber’s office for the request process and the certificate download process)

Please note that there are a few agencies that may require some subscribers to obtain a higher level of assurance than just the ECA Medium Assurance Certificates to digitally sign and exchange encrypted emails and to digitally sign a Portable Document Format (PDF) File.

The ECA Non-Client Certificates consist of Code Signing Certificates, MFOM Certificates (special program for contractors and DOD Personnel assigned to certain DOD Organizations), TAXII Certificates (special program with the DHS), Component/Server/SSL Certificates, Domain Controller Certificates, and VPN IPSec Certificates.
