    As a result of the GSA security requirement to remove the use of TLS 1.0 from the USAccess infrastructure, any workstation that connects to the USAccess service to complete enrollments or activations will need a registry update to disable TLS 1.0 in the workstation’s configuration as well as add TLS 1.1/1.2 support to the CCM libraries. This impacts all fixed Credentialing Units (FCUs), legacy fixed enrollment/activation workstations, Mobile Credentialing Units (MCUs), as well as Light Activation (LA) and Light Credentialing Solution (LCS) kits.

    For agencies receiving Fixed Credentialing Units as part of the USAccess transition process, please remember to schedule your Certification Call with a Perspecta (formerly DXC) engineer as soon as possible. These calls are required for the Fixed CU to become operational and should occur immediately after the equipment has been set up. Agency Site POCs are strongly encouraged to schedule these calls as soon as the equipment is received for maximum scheduling flexibility.

    A one-page informational flyer describing the USAccess Personal Identity Verification – Interoperable (PIV-I) credential has been created for agencies to display at credentialing centers. The flyer includes information on the PIV-I credential, who receives the credential, and the enrollment process. It was distributed to Agency Leads via email on June 29 and is posted on the Agency Lead Portal.

    USAccess Software Release 13.0.5 is scheduled for production the weekend of July 28, which will include changes to the server side of the Web Enrollment application used on FCUs and MCUs. These changes will improve the response time for Registrars when capturing biometrics and pictures during enrollment, and when saving the enrollment record. A draft release notice is posted on the Agency Lead Portal. In advance of this release, new installers for LA (v4.4) and MCUs (v1.4) will be posted on the USAccess SFTP server on Friday, July 27.

    The Entrust datacenter migration was successfully completed last weekend. The MSO re-verified with Entrust that customer agencies should not have experienced any issues. If you have experienced an issue, please contact the MSO at gsamso@gsa.gov.

    As of June 1, our credentialing service vendor, DXC Technology, is operating under a new name: Perspecta Inc. The new name is the result of a combination of DXC Technology’s U.S. Public Sector business with Vencore and KeyPoint. As a result of this name change, the USAccess Help Desk now has a new email address: usaccess.helpdesk@perspecta.com.
