30 Aug 11 – Update *USAF Recently changed the functionality of EITDR
To all System Security Engineers and Information Assurance Officers,
Here is something you might need to know. The Air Force is conducting
all MANY of its certification & accreditation through the EITDR database none of its C&A (soon Risk Management Framework) through EITDR. The USAF is moving to the eMASS. As of Aug 2011, the USAF is still using EITDR to do IT portfolio management (to remain compliant with FISMA). EITDR feeds into the DoD IT Portfolio Registry (DITPR) database. Each branch has its own methods IT registry: the Army’s has the Portfolio Management System (APMS), Navy/Marines have the DITPR-DON. All of these system are used to “record investment review and certification submission information, FISMA assessments, E-Authentication status, and Privacy Impact Assessment status” (office of the assistance sec of the navy).
Each branch has an agency that controls these databases for example, the Air Force has
the Air Force Communincations Agency (AFCA) AFNIC, the Army has the Installation Management Agency. These agencies moderate the certification & accreditation process. The IT Lean (aquisitions process) and the SISSU (security, interoperability, supportability, sustainability and usability) processes are integrated into the EITDR/DITPR-DON/APMS. Once you complete all the questions for you registered system, you will have accomplised complete SSAA, DIACAP, and even ISP packages. For more information search the public.afca.af.mil (USAF). Everything you need to know is there. Also call or email AFCA/EV to learn more.
