**Sharing ECA certificates and or passwords with anyone except to whom it was issued to is a security violation. Your certificate will be revoked and you will be removed from the GOPAX program.**





If you, as a carrier, are getting "site not secure" error while trying to authenticate:

Your "DoD Root CA Certificate" is out-dated or not installed. This has nothing to do with the ECA client certificate you purchased. The DoD Root CA certificate is used to identify DoD websites and validate that they are safe.

It is recommended that you update your DoD Root CA Certificates annually.

The link below will take you to the page that will allow you to choose the correct method of installation/update.

https://public.cyber.mil/pki-pke/tools-configuration-files/

You will need to select the download package depending on what computer system you have. If you open your search tab (bottom right) type in System it will show you what you have on your machine.

Most Microsoft Windows users will need the InstallRoot 5.5 NIPR 64-bit Windows installer. (9th from the top under tools.)

The InstallRoot package will automatically download the latest DoD Root CA certificates and install them on your machine. You can use this tool annually to keep the certificate up to date.

Advanced users that are comfortable with installing the certificates manually, or users that are not using Microsoft Windows can download the package "PKI CA Certificate Bundles: PKCS#7 for DoD PKI Only - Version 5.9". (Use the latest version of the DoD PKI bundle available)

Extract this bundle to your hard drive and follow the instructions or your particular OS/browser for importing the certificates manually.
