Industry Team Partnering for National Security Policy Updates • Use of PKI Certificates – Please note that it is wrongful to willingly use another individual's PKI certificate for authentication/logon to JPAS as the certificate is the digital representation of another person's identity. This is considered to be a misuse of technology and will result in a security incident and potentially permanent debarment from having a JPAS account. • Deleted JPAS Accounts – If your Account was created under a previous SMO that you previously separated from, the JPAS Account will be deleted. Please ensure your account is associated with your existing SMO. • • • • Denied, Revoked , Suspended or any other unfavorable eligibility No owning and/or servicing SMO Separated categories Inactivity of 90 days • Inactive Account Deletion Policy – In order to comply with CYBERCOM TASKORD 13-0641, JPAS/SWFT/DCII will be decreasing the inactive account deletion deadline from 90 days to 45. This change will not affect the current 30 day account lock due to inactivity. Users should remember to login every 30 days to prevent any interruption in access.

This printout screen can only be used to provide proof of investigation, eligibility, and access at that single point in time at the Federal Government Agency request. • Industry Users: The guidance to military, DoD and non-DoD civilian JPAS users does not apply to National Industrial Security Program (NISP) JPAS industry users regarding JCAVS Person Summary Screen Printouts.
