DTSI’s HRSTS Team partnered with Oracle Corporation over the last 18 months to enable Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) that allows authentication and Single Sign-On (SSO) protection of the Air Force Military Personnel System (MilPDS).
MILPDS serves all USAF bases across the world, with over seven hundred thousand Active duty, Air National Guard, and Air Force Reserve service members relying on MILPDS to accomplish HR tasks. MilPDS is the primary personnel system for actions that occur throughout every Airman’s career. MilPDS initiates pay actions, and maintains Air Force accountability and strength data. It further supports a host of interactions with other Air Force and Department of Defense processes and systems to include enlistments, accessions, reenlistments, Guard and Reserve unit training assemblies, duty and training assignments, mobilization/activation, casualty and immediate separations.
This program is the initial phase in establishing consolidated Identity and Access management for HR applications within USAF. DTSI, along with Oracle, will immediately begin Phase II, which includes PKI protection for Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition (OBIEE).
- Consolidated user administration
- Elimination of legacy user names and passwords
- Strengthened security though PKI utilization
- Standardized application access
- Proven foundation for SSO integration with other USAF support applications
This effective collaboration between Oracle Corporation and DTSI has been lauded as a strong example of successfully bringing small business and large business together to deliver great capability at a reasonable cost. DTSI personnel who significantly contributed to this effort include Ramesh Siddabattula (Team Lead), Cynthia Alvarez (DBA), and Brenda Lauer (Tester). DTSI’s key Oracle partners were Eric Shepard, Ravi Vanguri, and William Lindsey. Thanks to all for a successful launch of this SSO capability. Job well done!
