Introduction to PIV Developer Guides

PIV Developer Guides are to help engineers configure agency applications to require PIV authentication. These guides are intended to be technical and include step-by-step procedures to develop or configure a system, and should be specific to US Federal Government and PIV credentials.

We are gathering developer guides and invite you to contribute.

Examples of developer guide topics:

  • How do I enable PIV/CAC for SSH to a Unix-like system?
  • Lessons learned for enabling Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) to allow PIV/CAC?
  • How do I use PIV/CAC with a mainframe?
  • How do I enable a website to use PIV/CAC?
  • How do I enable a domain to assert assurance in the Kerberos tickets?
  • Code samples for accessing information on a PIV credential
  • Common scripts or tools that are government developed and open source for the public domain

You can contribute to this effort or open an Issue to discuss a need you may have for a guide.
