Communicating in the Department of the Navy (DON) over the Internet is an everyday event. The DON is developing the Navy Marine Corps Intranet (N/MCI) to enhance this communication capability. The security of communicating over the N/MCI has become a concern to the DON. The DON is relying on the N/MCI contractor to provide security for their communications. Key aspects of this secure communication will be provided through the use of a DON Public Key Infrastructure (PKI), which the N/MCI contractor is managing. To ensure the security of the PKI based communications the contract requires the monitoring of four PKI performance measures. This thesis analyzes performance measures, criterion, and standards then uses this analysis to review the contractual PKI performance measures and data collected from commercial PKI vendors. It recommends changes to these performance measures and provides additional performance criteria that should be included in the N/MCI contract. Finally, this thesis analyses how the N/MCI contract, specifically the PKI, impact DON members.
