DoD Aims to Move Forward Mobile Device ID Authentication Tech

HTCphoneThe Defense Department will work to tackle identity authentication and management functions on personal mobile devices as part of efforts to get the technology into its enterprise, Federal News Radio reported Monday.

Jared Serbu writes Greg Youst, chief mobility engineer at the Defense Information Systems Agency, said the agency aims to push personal device use in order access military networks.

Youst told an Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association mobile technology symposium held in Vienna, Va., Friday that the department also aims to address the military’s mobile communication requirements, particularly the U.S. Marine Corps.

The Marine Corps released a mobility strategy in April that plans to rely on commercial devices while in the field, according to the report.
