The FPKI Architecture (FPKIA) encompasses CAs by multiple vendors designating each CA to support a different FPKI policy and function. The Federal PKI enabling policy CAs are: (1) FBCA, (2) the Federal PKI Common Policy Framework (FCPF) Root CA, and (3) Citizen and Commerce Class Common (C4) Root CA. The evolved operation also incorporates the e-Governance CAs used to issue SSL/TLS certificates supporting assertion-based credentials for Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) data exchanges.

There is a test environment and a Production FPKIA. The Production FPKIA has gone through Certification and Accreditation and was granted an Approval to Operate.

The General Services Administration (GSA), Office of Governmentwide Policy (OGP) has been appointed as the Federal PKI Management Authority (FPKI MA), to manage the design, development, implementation and operation of the Production FPKIA.
