Former Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) Director Lt. Gen. Robert Ashley, Jr. (retired) chairs the NextgenID Advisory Board


WASHINGTON, February 7, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — “Throughout Lieutenant General Ashley’s distinguished career, he has experienced first-hand the challenges of today’s traditional identity solutions, including long appointments, required in-person registrations, lack of alternate token support, and inconvenient and unreliable infrastructure for credential management services, such as unlocking cards, changing PINs, and updating certificates “said Mr. Mohab Murar, CEO of NextgenID. “Defense, intelligence and civilian agencies desperately need to modernize their Identity, Identifier and Access Management (ICAM) infrastructures. NextgenID can build on Lt. Gen. Ashley’s experience to continue innovating on our solutions and provide government customers with innovative next-generation identity technologies.”

Lieutenant General Robert P. Ashley, Jr., US Army, Ret. joined NextgenID as Chairman of its Board of Directors.

Lt. Gen. Ashley most recently served as director of the US Defense Intelligence Agency. Previously, he served as the Deputy Chief of Staff of the Army, G-2, where he was Senior Advisor to the Secretary of the Army and Chief of the Army Staff for all aspects of Intelligence, counterintelligence and security. Other notable assignments include Director of Intelligence, Joint Special Operations Command; Director of Intelligence, US Central Command; the Deputy Chief of Staff for Intelligence of the International Security Assistance Force and Director of Intelligence for US Forces in Afghanistan; and Commanding General, U.S. Army Intelligence Center of Excellence.

“After learning all about NextgenID’s High Assurance Trust Services (IAL-3) platform, including how they worked for years with NIST to create the rules for supervised, remote identity verification (SRIP) found in the NIST SP 800-63.3 and FIPS 201-3 standards, I am confident that this solution is an absolute necessity for our service members, their dependents, and the contractor community,” said Lt. Gen. Ashley “Efforts to implement low-assurance IAL-2 solutions, as recent news reports show, are a step backwards. The reality is that we need higher assurance solutions. NextgenID’s solution addresses the necessary changes to the current Common Access Card (CAC) solution to make it more modern, efficient and secure, by implementing SRIP, supporting alternative tokens and providing a variety of payment options. and network solutions for identity verification, credential management, and trust service delivery.
