Certificate Policy Working Group (CPWG)

The Federal Public Key Infrastructure (FPKI) Certificate Policy Working Group (CPWG) serves as a policy advisory group to the FPKI Policy Authority (FPKIPA). The CPWG provides recommendations on policy mappings and changes to the Federal Bridge Certification Authority (FBCA) and Federal Common Policy Certification Authority (FCPCA) Certificate Policies. CPWG activities include:

  • Facilitating proposed changes to the FPKI Certificate Policies.
  • Facilitating the process for organizations wishing to cross-certify with the FPKI.
  • Addressing and resolving specific issues through policy analysis and modification.


The CPWG is open to employees and designated contractors from federal agencies, as well as commercial and non-profit participants.

  • To join, send us an email and include the text “Request to Join CPWG” in the subject line.


The CPWG meets as needed. Attendees can participate either in-person or via teleconference.
