(Formerly known to the government community as DIACAP C&A.)

The DoD Information Assurance Certification and Accreditation Process (DIACAP) was a United States Department of Defense (DoD) process and was a means to ensure that companies and organizations apply risk management to information systems (IS). The certification and accreditation (C&A) of a DoD IS maintains the information assurance (IA) posture throughout the system’s life cycle.  However, DIACAP is no longer the law of the land when it comes to authorizing IS onto a DoD environment.  A new process named DoD RMF, for Risk Management Framework, has been in effect since late 2013.

Risk Management Framework (RMF) is the unified information security framework for the entire federal government that is replacing the legacy Certification and Accreditation (C&A) processes within federal government departments and agencies, the Department of Defense (DOD) and the Intelligence Community (IC). DoD officially began its transition from the legacy DIACAP process to the new “RMF for DoD IT” process Assessment and Authorization (A&A).
