Federal Public Key Infrastructure Management Authority

The Federal Public Key Infrastructure Management Authority (FPKIMA), governed under the Federal PKI Policy Authority (FPKIPA), provides trust infrastructure services to support organizations in meeting their identity management and data security goals using PKI. The General Services Administration (GSA) is designated by the FPKIPA as the Management Authority. As the managing partner, GSA provides the best and most cost-effective Trust Infrastructure services to federal agencies.

GSA's primary focus is to ensure that common identity and access management policies for secure physical and logical access, document sharing, and communications across federal agencies and between external business partners are realized through the execution and management of digital certificate policies and standards.

ICAM Alignment

At the technology layer of the Identity, Credential, and Access Management (ICAM) segment architecture, the Management Authority manages the Trust Infrastructure. The Trust Infrastructure is the foundation to support the leveraging of IT investments and assets that have been identified and evaluated as interoperable approaches that can be shared across the government. This allows federal agencies to align around common identity and access management practices and reduce the identity and access management burden for individual agencies.
