DoD Visitor

Overview

DoD Visitor is a joint effort between the DoD CIO, the Joint Staff, DISA, the NSA, and DMDC. The vision of DoD Visitor is to enable a DoD user to “go anywhere in the DoD, login, and be productive.” The DoD Visitor service enables any DoD domain with Microsoft Windows Domain Controllers supporting user accounts and authentication to provision an account to any visiting (i.e. has no account) user that presents a valid Common Access Card (CAC) and Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) certificate. Once provisioned, the guest user may have access to a web browser, Microsoft Office, local print services, and other applications as made available by the local CC/S/A. They may also temporarily store files on the workstation, which are automatically removed when the user logs off the system.

DoD Visitor enables any DoD domain with Microsoft Windows Domain Controllers supporting user accounts and authentication to provision an account to any visiting (i.e. has no account) user that presents a valid CAC or PKI certificate. Once provisioned, the guest user may have access to local network resources.

Currently, DoD Visitor is available for use on the NIPRNet and is planned for SIPRNet deployment in FY13.

Why Should I Use It?

Aside from enhancing the effectiveness of DoD personnel across the enterprise, the use of the DoD Visitor service on the NIPRNet is directed by USCYBERCOM Communications Tasking Order (CTO) 10-116.

How Can I Use It?

The source code for DoD Visitor NIRPNet is available for download on SoftwareForge at https://software.forge.mil/sf/projects/dodvisitor. Relevant training documentation for end users, system administrators, and help desk personnel is also available.
