USAccess SIP Connections: Response Requested from Agency Leads ASAP

An email was sent to agency leads and SIP contacts on August 2 regarding the discontinued support for the TLS 1.0 protocol. For customers who use our System Infrastructure Provider (SIP) interface, there is potential that there will be a service disruption if your agency systems are still using TLS 1.0 to establish secure connections on this interface. Agency Leads, please respond to the email from August 2 as soon as possible with the requested information about the system your agency operates to communicate with the SIP interface.

New File to apply to MCUs, LA and LCS kits on SFTP Server

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.
