A Note on Shared vs. Dedicated Centers

Recently, many agencies have seen cardholders make appointments at dedicated centers that do not serve their agency. Please ensure that cardholders know they may make an appointment at a dedicated center for their respective agency or a shared center.

Please also be mindful that shared centers carry the burden of serving many agencies and may have appointment slots fill up more quickly. If distance isn’t a significant factor and an agency-dedicated center is available, please give preference to the dedicated center.

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.
