National Industrial Security Program (NISP) Contracts Classification System (NCAISS)

The DCSA NCAISS Portal is a web-based application that provides Public Key Infrastructure (PKI)-based authentication services to DCSA applications and information systems for authorized users. Through the NCAISS Portal, an authorized user can access their DCSA NCAISS Portal account via a single sign-on (SSO) capability using PKI certificates (either a Common Access Card (CAC) or DoD-approved External Certification Authority (ECA) certificate).

From the NCAISS Portal Home Page, a user may request access to multiple DCSA applications that have been integrated with the Portal using the automated account request process. Once a request is approved (if applicable), the user is able to access those applications using their PKI credentials.

Gaining access to the DCSA NCAISS Portal is a simple, two-step process that consists of: Completing the DCSA NCAISS Portal Access Request Form (available from the NCAISS Portal Login page)

Registering a CAC or other PKI credential to your newly created NCAISS Portal account
