United States Department of Defense External Certification Authority X.509 Certificate Policy

This Certificate Policy (CP) governs the operation of the ECA Public Key Infrastructure (PKI), consisting of products and services that provide and manage X.509 certificates for public-key cryptography. The United States (US) DoD has established the External Certification Authority (ECA) program to support the issuance of DoD-approved certificates to industry partners and other external entities and organizations. The ECA program is designed to provide the mechanism for these entities to securely communicate with the DoD and authenticate to DoD Information Systems.
