DoD Cyber Exchange 101
The DoD Cyber Exchange provides one-stop access to Cyber information, policy, guidance and training for cyber professionals throughout the DoD. Formerly the Information Assurance Support Environment (IASE), some portions of the site are also available to the remainder of the Federal Government and the general public. These resources are provided to enable the user to comply with rules, regulations, best practices and federal laws. DISA is mandated to support and sustain the DoD Cyber Exchange as directed by DoDI 8500.01 and DODD 8140.01.
DoD Cyber Exchange History
The DoD Cyber Exchange began as the Information Assurance Support Environment (IASE) which was implemented in May 1997 on the Non-Secure Internet Protocol Router NETwork (NIPRNet) to provide a wide range of Information Assurance services. In October 1997 it was expanded to the Secret Internet Protocol Router NETwork (SIPRNet). The IASE Portals have been a mainstay in the information assurance and cyber communities and has a usership of over five million annually to include DoD Components, the federal government and general public.
The IASE celebrated its 20th anniversaries in May 2017 and October 2017, and announced plans to modernized IASE Public, IASE NIPR and IASE SIPR to enhance the user interface and user experience; along with the “new look and feel” IASE was rebranded to the DoD Cyber Exchange.
Today’s “DoD Cyber Exchange Family of Portals” consists of:
- Public (https://public.cyber.mil), which is accessible to all Internet users,
- NIPR (https://cyber.mil), which requires Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) credentials for access to NIPRNet,
- SIPR (https://cyber.smil.mil), which can only be accessed from the SIPRNet.
