Government

Operating Environment

By its nature, Government operates in a highly regulated environment.  In most cases, individual Agencies make their own policies and procedures to comply with law or other directives. One of these major directives in the identity and credentials involves interoperability and the ability to provision a single, standardized credential that works across Government. The underlying directive has driven standardization of identity proofing, background processing, enrollment, and centralized credential management. Due to funding and other constraints, it has taken nearly two decades to upgrade legacy physical security infrastructure to approach compliance with certificate-management standards.

A few other factors add more complexity to this highly regulated environment:  identity management across the government and agencies; supporting both classified and unclassified work; trade compliance requirements.

A single Agency may have different entities performing Management and Operations (M&O) at its individual Sites.  Agencies may also have to handle personnel from a variety of organizations.
