OBTAINING TEST CERTIFICATES
If your organization is interested in obtaining test certificates, please read the information below.
NOTE: Test certificate and materials are not intended nor authorized for live use in applications and systems that presently or will imminently operate in a production/operational capacity serving a "real-world" mission for the general DoD public community.
Agencies, groups, departments that require certificates should appoint and use their own Local Registration Authority (LRA) or Registration Authority (RA). This allows the production of certificates at the discretion of your designated LRA/RA.
The process for test certificate issuance begins with the Sponsor Agency as indicated at the PKI/PKE Help website https://cyber.mil/pki-pke/help/ (Section: Help-PKI/PKE Contact Information).
The intent is for the Sponsor Agency of the product/test be the entity issuing the test certificate. This ensures a valid requirement exists for that particular test. Organizations can obtain FREE Registration Authority (RA) training through the DoD Cyber Exchange: https://cyber.mil/pki-pke/rlkt/?_dl_facet_pkipke_type=training.
Questions about each Agency RA process should be directed to that Agency (emails and phone numbers are available on the website).
