Marine Corps’ Rob Anderson: Navy, DISA Assess ID Verification Software for Military Members

mobile device managementThe U.S. Navy and Defense Information Systems Agency are collaborating to develop and test a software system for verifying the identities of military members through a mobile device, Nextgov reported Tuesday.

Aliya Sternstein writes the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command and DISA have developed prototype software that works to swipe an identification card on a computer and transmit a derived certificate to a smartphone.

Rob Anderson, a vision and strategy division chief at the U.S. Marine Corps, told Nextgov that DISA is funding the project.

“The SPAWAR team already has a solution that’s running on their test network,” Anderson told the publication.

Sternstein writes users will be able to download the derived certificate to the smartphone through the military’s existing ID management system in order to access government networks.
