Configure a policy in the BIG-IP APM module to accept Personal Identity Verification (PIV) credentials from other federal agencies.

Apply APM policy to the applicable Virtual Server(s) in the BIG-IP LTM module to accept Personal Identity Verification (PIV) credentials from other federal agencies when connecting to virtual servers.

If the BIG-IP Core does not provide user authentication intermediary services for virtual servers, this is not applicable.

When user authentication intermediary services are provided, verify the BIG-IP Core is configured as follows:

Verify Virtual Server(s) in the BIG-IP LTM module are configured with an APM policy to accept Personal Identity Verification (PIV) credentials from other federal agencies.

Navigate to the BIG-IP System manager >> Local Traffic >> Virtual Servers >> Virtual Servers List tab.

Select Virtual Servers(s) from the list to verify.

Verify under "Access Policy" section that "Access Policy" has been set to accept Personal Identity Verification (PIV) credentials from other federal agencies when connecting to member pools/nodes.

If the BIG-IP Core is not configured to accept Personal Identity Verification (PIV) credentials from other federal agencies, this is a finding.
