DISA to Develop DoD User Authentication Protocol

Jeff Brody

The Defense Information Systems Agency is seeking to create a method to help the Department of Defense validate user logins to the latter's information systems. DISA said Thursday it wants to utilize an authentication process to allow users to access information to any DoD network through mobile devices. Additionally, the agency intends to apply a continuous multifactor authentication process to establish and confirm user identification. 

“We’re looking at how we can get a mobile platform, whether it’s a ‘bring your own device,’ or a government-furnished piece of equipment, that has [access to multiple levels of classification],” said Maj. Nikolaus Ziegler, military director at DISA's innovation office.

Ziegler added that DISA also plans to explore commercial platforms and procurement avenues that may assist in the project.
