Exostar, whose cloud-based solutions enable secure, cost-effective business-to-business collaboration, today announced its Federated Identity Service (FIS) has received interoperability certification for its public key infrastructure (PKI) services that are based on the latest National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) SHA-2 standard. Exostar has signed a Memorandum of Agreement with the Department of Defense’s (DoD) Office of the CIO that asserts Exostar’s FIS PKI certificates can be used to access DoD applications and other secure access points via the Federal Bridge Certification Authority (FBCA).
