Route1 launches MobiKEY support for DISA's Purebred


2019-01-21 13:09 ET - News Release


Mr. Tony Busseri reports


Route1 Inc. has released MobiKEY for iOS version 5.4.51 with support for the U.S. Department of Defense, Defense Information Systems Agency's (DISA) Purebred technology.

MobiKEY is a complete desktop, secure remote access technology that integrates multifactor authentication and identity management in a mobile computing environment. What differentiates MobiKEY from other remote access technologies is that:


  • The technology provides smart-card-based multifactor authentication, fully integrating with PIV cards and common access cards.
  • Your data stay within your enterprise's network perimeter -- there is no risk of data leakage.
  • MobiKEY is not a browser-based technology. Therefore, it is not vulnerable to man-in-the-browser attack vectors.
  • The technology is not a VPN (virtual private network). There are no open inbound ports mitigating the risk of penetration attacks.
  • MobiKEY does not create external nodes on your network, thus mitigating the risk of malware introduction.
  • The technology is built with security as its first priority.


The MobiKEY advantage when using DISA's Purebred

By using MobiKEY for iOS version 5.4.51, end-users will be able to use their mobile device to access the applications that are on their desktop device the same way that they are today. The user will be able to use the derived credentials present on the mobile device without the need of a common access card and a card reader -- the same functionality as using a common access card with a desktop. By using MobiKEY for IOS version 5.4.51, the DoD will not need to rewrite desktop applications that it uses, which is an obvious advantage over other approaches to implementing Purebred.

The MobiKEY technology has an authority to operate (ATO) with each of the U.S. Department of Defense, Joint Service Provider, the U.S. Department of the Navy, the U.S. Marine Corps and the U.S. Department of the Interior's U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

Derived credentials are intended as a replacement for a common access card when end-users are employing a mobile device to perform their day-to-day tasks. Purebred is the implementation of derived credentials provided by DISA.

Purebred is a key management server and set of applications for mobile devices. It aims to facilitate separating key management from device management so that key management maintains its affinity with the public key infrastructure (PKI) and is consistent across the U.S. Department of Defense enterprise. Device management can vary with each operational scenario.

Purebred was developed by DISA PKI Engineering to provide a secure, scalable method of distributing software certificates for DoD PKI subscribers' use on commercial mobile devices. The system first establishes trust in device certificates used to encrypt configuration data bound for a device, then permits subscribers to demonstrate possession and usage of their common access card to generate two new derived credentials and recover existing e-mail encryption keys.
