Transition to New IP Addresses Summer 2019

Starting this summer, the USAccess Service is transitioning to new IP addresses as part of some infrastructure work. No equipment will be transitioned (similar to last year’s move to a new datacenter) and no updates on agency workstations (either FCU, MCU or LAs) will be needed. If Agencies currently whitelist these IP addresses, they will just need to add new SIP IP addresses to their Agency firewall configurations. The role holder portal IP addresses will be handled by a change made by GSA.

Guidance on REAL ID Act Compliance

Several Customer Agencies have recently requested guidance on how USAccess credentialing sites should handle identity documents that are not REAL ID Act compliant.

All 56 states and territories are currently compliant with REAL ID or non-compliant with an extension. The residents from these states and territories may continue using their driver’s licenses or identification cards, regardless of whether the license/ID is REAL ID compliant or not, for accessing Federal facilities (including military bases), entering nuclear power plants, and boarding commercial aircraft.

Deadline Extended for Legacy Equipment Decommissioning

The GSA Managed Service Office (MSO) previously communicated that legacy equipment, including Light Credentialing Solution (LCS) and legacy fixed stations, will be decommissioned on May 6, 2019. This deadline is extended until further notice due to the delay in shipping routers associated with Fixed Credentialing Units (FCUs). See the email that was distributed to Agency Leads on April 16, 2019 for additional details regarding the FCU router delay. The MSO will communicate updates to Agency Leads as they are available.
