The Defense Information Systems Agency has issued a request for information for a common service provider for the public key infrastructure architectures and directory services for the Nonsecure IP Routing Network (NIPRNet) and Secret IP Routing Network (SIPRNet).
The majority of work will pertain to systems and subsystems required to facilitate issuance and distribution of PKI credentials, according to a March 12 notice on the FedBizOpps website.
DISA wants a contractor that can furnish personnel, materials, equipment, and facilities for the execution of assigned test and evaluation activities to include programming, certification and accreditation, installation, and related technical support for response to problems reported by users and in support of program requirements as established by the program management office.
Efforts involved will include directory synchronization testing, evaluation of backup and failover procedures, execution between multiple government locations and full system evaluation before a capability increment release for deployment.
Tasks will primarily focus on credential management infrastructure, public directories that support distribution of credentials, certificate revocation lists and other areas required to support the government's PKI issuance infrastructure.
Responses are due March 19.
