Nancy Norton

Vice Adm. Nancy Norton, director of the Defense Information Systems Agency, said at an Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association event held Monday that DISA expects to receive some prototype devices for identity assurance this summer, FCW reported Tuesday.

She added the agency is scheduled to distribute 75 devices within the Defense Department in late fall.

DISA also plans to implement a prototype common access card replacement for users to authenticate, decrypt and sign operations in personal computers running Microsoft Windows, according to Norton (a 2018 Wash100 recipient).

She noted that a multifactor authentication technology will help agency personnel to unlock mobile derived credentials.
