FPKIPA  Federal Public Key Infrastructure Policy Authority Today's Date is: 

Welcome to the Federal PKI Policy Authority website

The Federal PKI Policy Authority (FPKIPA) sets policy governing operation of the U.S. Federal PKI Infrastructure, composed of: the Federal Bridge Certification Authority (FBCA); the Federal Common Policy Framework Certification Authority (CPFCA); the Citizen and commerce Class Common Certification Authority (C4CA) and the E-Governance Certification Authority. The FPKIPA approves applicants for cross certification with the FBCA.

The FPKIPA was created at the direction of the Federal CIO Council and operates pursuant to Federal CIO Council authority. It serves the interest of U.S. Government organizations as relying parties, and encourages interoperability with Non-Federal PKIs. The FPKIPA is composed of Federal Agencies, State governments, not-for-profit organizations, other PKI Bridges, private sector PKIs and interested parties that have chosen to trust each other's digital certificates using the FBCA infrastructure.

Three classes of participants make up the membership of the FPKIPA: voting members, who represent Federal Agencies cross-certified PKIs; nonvoting members, who represent other PKI domains and Bridges cross-certified with the FBCA, and observers, who are interested parties with business relationships with the Federal PKI Infrastructure.   Continue-->
