Personal Identity Verification (PIV) Process

PIV is the Agency tool used to validate an identity for access to facilities and information technology systems and applications.  This tool is used to enable the process of issuing a trusted identity badge that is recognized as valid within and outside the agency from which it was issued.  

PIV is accessed through the Identity and Access Management System (IdMAX). To access PIV, you must have an IdMAX account (see instructions for obtaining an IdMAX account).

  • Temporary - for NASA employees and contractors who will need access to NASA facilities for less than 180 days
