Security Tip: Credential Inventory Tool is important for Chain-of-Trust

Issuing organizations are required to maintain a Chain-of-Trust from the time credentials are physically received, when they are transferred to the credential holder, and throughout the lifecycle until credential destruction.

Timely use of the Credential Inventory Tool (CIT) by Operators and Activators is required to ensure that the Chain-of-Trust is properly maintained throughout its lifecycle and that USAccess and your agency know the status and location of a credential.

Security Tip - USAccess Account Security Best Practices

We all know and understand that Government systems require that each user be explicitly identified. The credential produced for you by USAccess is a key element in establishing your unique ID. Unauthorized use of your credential may expose you and your agency to unnecessary risk. In extreme cases, it may also expose you to civil and possible criminal penalties. Examples of unauthorized or improper use can include using someone else's credential (with or without their permission), lending your credential to a colleague, or leaving it unattended.
