Warrior Gateway and Common Access Cards (CAC)

April 15, 2011
11:00to13:00

Today we will be attending the launch of the White House’s National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace (NSTIC).  Warrior Gateway was approached by the Defense Manpower Data Center at the Department of Defense to be one of several private sector organizations to implement Common Access Card authentication, commonly known as CAC, as part of this launch.  Leveraging our innovative technology platform, powered by MarkLogic, we were able to quickly implement CAC authentication into WarriorGateway.org and will be demo-ing it today.

We are proud to be part of this launch and look forward to collaborating with the other private sector organizations who will be demonstrating their capabilities as well.  This launch will take place today at 11:30am when the White House releases the NSTIC Strategy on April 15 at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in Washington, D.C.  The video stream can be found here.

The Coming Home Project is a non-profit organization devoted to providing direct care to OEF and OIF veterans and their families.  They offer a variety of national retreats for OEF and OIF veterans and their families, as well as retreats for service providers who work with the OEF and OIF community each and every day.  This is a unique perspective in actively assisting those willing to volunteer their lives to help the OEF/OIF community.  The philosophy is that by helping one service provider, that service provider can in turn better serve the entire community.

Where: Burlingame, CA

When: April 14th-17th

Who: Service providers across the nation who have at least 50% of their course load devoted to assisting OEF and/or OIF veterans and family members.

What: The retreat will focus on the service provider’s emotional well being and will be an open and nurturing environment for discussion and reflection.

The retreat is completely free but will fill up quickly, so please apply soon.  Air travel, lodging, and meals will be provided.   In order to be considered for this opportunity, please apply here.   For more information and details on what to expect at the retreat please visit http://www.cominghomeproject.net/event/retreat_service_providers.

The Warrior Gateway would appreciate if all who have attended a Coming Home Project event, or who plan to attend this upcoming retreat, to please rate the Coming Home Project on our website.  It is important to get the word out on great organizations for the military community, and the only people who can do so are you.
