Rockville, Maryland

Summary / Description

We are currently seeking a motivated, career and customer oriented Identity, Credential, and Access Management (ICAM) Lead to join our team in Rockville, MD to begin an exciting and challenging career with Unisys Federal Systems.


In this role you will provide hands on practical experience to design, implement, and support both the technical and managerial aspects of cloud enterprise computing environments. Specialties to include: storage architectures, database application development, knowledge management and search, wireless and mobile devices; and secured VoIP, e-mail, and instant messaging services.


Duties/Tasks and Responsibilities:

Provide ongoing technical expertise for the agency’s identity, credential, and access management mechanisms that identify, authenticate, and authorize individuals and technical services to enable appropriate access to resources in a standardized and interoperable manner.

The ICAM Program provides a comprehensive approach that represents the intersection of the three major pillars of ICAM.

From an Identity Management perspective, the NRC employs a combination of technology, rules and procedures for assigning attributes to a digital identity, associating the digital identity to an individual (staff and contractors), and managing the digital identity throughout its life cycle. The NRC recently implemented SailPoint IdentityIQ as a key component of its Identity Management solution stack. Currently within the Agency, identity attributes are transitioning from legacy silo repositories within each technology system or application maintaining its own records. The Agency recognizes that this legacy approach perpetuates complexity and redundancy in user life cycle management, securing PII, and data exchange.

From a Credential Management perspective the Agency also manages the lifecycle of a credential (authoritatively binds an identity to a token possessed and controlled by a person), including identity proofing, credential selection, issuance, monitoring, updating, revocation, and termination of the credential. To support this, the NRC operates a multi-level Managed Public Key Infrastructure (MPKI) facility from Symantec that includes PIV and SSL credentials. This facility supports Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) certificate issuance and validation. Through a hierarchical Certificate Authority (CA) structure, this facility is capable of creating and managing PKI certificates designed for different purposes (e.g. authentication, digital signature, and encryption).

The NRC also currently supports external partner ICAM requirements by providing PKI credentials compliant with the Federal Bridge Certificate Policy at the Rudimentary assurance level. These credentials are used by partners to access NRC public-facing applications and to digitally-sign electronic submissions. The Agency has also implemented non-PKI credentials in the form of One-Time Password (OTP) tokens from Symantec VIP to extend its remote authentication capabilities to a diverse set of platforms including personally owned devices such as smart phones and tablets.

From an Access Management perspective, the NRC manages how individuals are granted logical access to its networks and systems as well as access to physical locations such as a building, parking lot, garage, or office. Access to both support and mission-focused systems at the NRC is typically granted at the application level. Logical Access Control Systems (LACS) are built-in with individual application access mechanisms. The current LACS implementations at the NRC are not centrally managed or provisioned. In some cases, application owners across the NRC enterprise continue to maintain user IDs and passwords, whereas others have fully adopted the use of Active Directory credentials. Access to the NRC enterprise network is controlled through a Windows logon that has been integrated with the PIV Card, enabling users to authenticate using the traditional username and password or by using their PIV Card and PIN.

The NRC also maintains a centralized Physical Access Management system, and has started integrating it with the PCI system. This integration allows the NRC to automatically provision users with general access at PIV Card issuance time. The NRC is also following NIST SP 800-116 and applying its guidance to NRC controlled facilities. As previously stated, the NRC uses the PIV card for physical access. Currently, a partial Card Holder Unique Identifier (CHUID), as defined in the NIST standards, is used as the authentication factor on PIV cards to grant physical access to NRC staff and contractors. Some locations throughout the NRC require that the PACS PIN be provided as well, as an additional authentication factor.

Responsible for working directly with the NRC to maintain and incrementally improve their respective support areas.

Participate in direct operational delivery of services as well as act as Lead resource.
