New Federal Public Key Infrastructure (FPKI) Root Certification Authority (CA)

As previously announced, a new Federal Public Key Infrastructure (FPKI) Root Certification Authority (CA), Federal Common Policy CA G2 (FCPCAG2), was established.  FPKI CAs signed by the old root CA will migrate to FCPCAG2. To limit impact, customer Agencies must distribute the new trust chain to the FCPCAG2. Once migration is complete, the old root CA will be decommissioned in May 2021.  

 

GSA’s Office of Governmentwide Policy (OGP) recently updated guidance to include frequently asked questions for updating your trust stores within your IT environment. Contact fpkirootupdate@gsa.gov for more information.

 

Moving to the new certificate is mandatory. The current CA certificates between the old Federal Common Policy CA and the Entrust Managed Services Root CA will remain available and valid for the time being; however, the current CA certificates will be revoked and removed by April 2021.

 

USAccess Agencies are strongly encouraged to perform testing between now and April 2021 to ensure all customer use cases are intact after the change (e.g., smart card logon to workstations, VPN access, etc.).

 

Reference the links below to download the newly created Federal Common Policy CA G2 and the Entrust Managed Services Root certificates.
