The following questions are meant to provide guidance regarding which IdAM Portfolio services make sense for you. If none of these questions address your specific scenario, please contact the IdAM Portfolio team.

DoD personnel often visit my office location, but they do not have access to the network unless they bring their own laptop or someone allows them to “borrow” their CAC. What can I do?

The DoD Visitor service is available to help you with this problem. The service allows visiting users who posses a valid CAC or other Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) certificate to log into a workstation, providing them with access to a web browser, Microsoft Office, and local print services. They may also temporarily store files on the workstation, which are automatically removed when the user logs off the system.

​​My DoD Organization is looking for an automated way to pull down global address list (GAL) or directory information for our population. Does the IdAM Portfolio provide a service for this?

DISA offers a feed called an IdSS machine interface (IdMI) connection that provides access to IdSS data in an automated fashion. Because this information contains PII data, DISA must take certain steps to ensure the protection of the data. In order to establish an IdMI connection, your DoD Organization would need to work with DISA to get a connection agreement (MOA, ATO, and PIA) in place. For more information on establishing an IdMI connection, please refer to the IdMI Customer Interface Specification (CIS) on the Program Documentation page or contact the DISA EDS Team.
