HmC requires PKI credentials (CAC, ECA, or DoD Interoperability Approved) for authentication. The ECA is the best solution for most contractors, developers and testers. An ECA Medium Assurance Software is needed for user access or the ECA Medium Token Assurance stored on Smart Card or USB Token can also be used. For machine-to-machine API connections, an ECA Medium Assurance TLS/SSL is required.
If your agency or employer is part of the DoD External and Federal PKI Interoperability program (http://iase.disa.mil/pki-pke/interoperability/Pages/index.aspx), those credentials can also be used in HmC.
