RMKS/1.  EXECUTIVE SUMMARY.  THIS IS A COORDINATED DON CIO AND
ACNO(IT) MESSAGE.  IN ACCORDANCE WITH REFS A AND B, THIS MESSAGE
IMPLEMENTS THE USE OF CAC AND PUBLIC KEY INFRASTRUCTURE (PKI) TO
ACCESS THE DEPARTMENT OF THE NAVY APPLICATIONS AND DATABASE
MANAGEMENT SYSTEM (DADMS).
2.  EFFECTIVE 06 SEP 2005 PKI AUTHENTICATION SIGN-ON WILL BE
REQUIRED TO ACCESS DADMS. THIS ACTION WAS DELAYED FROM 22 AUG 2005,
PREVIOUSLY ANNOUNCED IN REF B, TO COINCIDE WITH SCHEDULED COMPLETION
OF NETWORK AND SERVER REGISTRATION.  THIS ACTION IS BEING TAKEN TO
PROVIDE ADDITIONAL ASSURANCE THAT ONLY PERSONNEL AUTHORIZED BY THE
CURRENT DADMS ACCESS CONTROL PROCESS HAVE ACCESS TO THE NETWORK AND
APPLICATION INFORMATION CONTAINED IN DADMS. DADMS USERS MUST EITHER
HAVE A VALID PKI SOFTWARE CERTIFICATION (SOFTCERT) INSTALLED ON THEIR
SYSTEM OR USE A COMMON ACCESS CARD (CAC) READER AND SOFTWARE TO
PROVIDE THE AUTHENTICATION.

DOES NOT CHANGE THE CURRENT METHOD OF OBTAINING ACCESS TO DADMS.
ANY DADMS USER ID AND PASSWORD PROBLEMS SHOULD STILL BE REPORTED TO
THE DADMS HELP DESK.  CAC PROBLEMS ARE TO BE REPORTED TO COMMAND CAC
ISSUING ACTIVITIES SINCE THE DADMS HELP DESK CANNOT ASSIST WITH CAC
PROBLEMS.  USE OF THE CAC TO ACCESS DADMS CAN BE TESTED IMMEDIATELY
AND IS ENCOURAGED TO INSURE CAC PROBLEMS HAVE BEEN ADDRESSED PRIOR TO
THE PKI AUTHENTICATION BEING IMPLEMENTED ON 06 SEP 05.
