How do I get a CAC?

Contractors are eligible for CAC under most circumstances. Talk to your sponsor and see:http://www.acq.osd.mil/dpap/pdi/gca/DoD_Contractor_Guidebook_UNCLAS_NETWORK_Access_11_21_2014_FINAL.pdf

What if I can’t get a CAC?

Non-CAC accounts must be sponsored and require manual approval and validation. DoD Contractors must have their DoD sponsor contact the DENIX helpdesk using a CAC signed email advising of your full legal name, your contract number and expiration date, the reason access is required and reason a CAC cannot be obtained.  You will be required to purchase medium assurance smart card (PIV-1) from a DoD approved External Certificate Authority (ECA) See: http://iase.disa.mil/pki/eca/Pages/index.aspx.  Once you have the ECA PIV-1 you must also send a signed email to the helpdesk identifying the sponsor of your request and your full legal name.

  • IMPORTANT: DENIX-KBCRS only accepts ECA PIV-1 smart card certificates issued by Operational Research Consultants, Inc. (ORC) 
  • PIV-1 cards issued under the Federal Certificate Bridge Authority (FCBA) or other ECA vendors cannot be used at this time.

Where do I get help with CAC?

CAC behavior is determined by your computer and browser settings. Lots of great helpful information is available from http://militarycac.com/.

  • Your computer will need to be configured to trust DoD PKI certificates and you may need middleware software such as Active Client
  • DISA has a tool called InstallRoot that helps with the certificate installations at : http://iase.disa.mil/pki-pke/Pages/tools.aspx
