Federal Public Key Infrastructure Policy Authority

The Federal Public Key Infrastructure Policy Authority (FPKIPA), an interagency body established under the CIO Council, determines that the appropriate levels of assurance are satisfied by the policies supported in the PKI domain and that the PKI domain fulfills its responsibilities under these policies. It enforces digital certificate standards for trusted identity authentication across and between federal agencies and non-federal organizations. The policies of the FPKIPA help to create and environment in which different organizations can trust each other's PKI credentials.

To drive this effort, it oversees and supports four working groups to address common topic areas and challenges:
 

Certificate Policy Working GroupServes as a technical advisory group and make recommendations to the FPKIPA on policy mappings and changes to the Federal Bridge Certification (FBCA) policy.
PKI Shared Service Provider Working GroupServes as a technical advisory group and make recommendations to the FPKIPA on policy mappings and changes to the FPKI Common Policy Framework.
Technical Working GroupFocuses on advancing Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) technology.

The Federal Public Key Infrastructure Policy Authority meets monthly on the 2nd Tuesday of the month.
