* Requires Max Authenication
The White House's Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has established an HSPD-12 compliant Central Authentication Service
, called the MAX Authentication Service
that is available, for free, to all approved federal employees and contractors. The web site is http://max.omb.gov
Any application with Internet access can authenticate Federal users or authorized contractors with Single or Two-Factor authentication
methods using this site after receiving approval from OMB. The XaaS HSPD-12 Authentication Connector delivers full integration with the MAX Authentication Service and can be installed in 45 minutes or less.
The following references provide insight into the background and development of this authentication strategy.
