ECA IDENTIFICATION & AUTHENTICATION

Certificates > ECA > ECA Identification & Authentication


Citizenship (multiple citizenships)

After July 1, 2007, all ECA program Applicants are required to prove their citizenship, which will be included in the certificate. When necessary, multiple citizenships can be included in the certificate after they have been verified. IdenTrust will collect up to three citizenships in its registration processes (Online and Bulkload).

Citizenship will be verified based on a valid passport of the country of citizenship. Only for United Stated citizens, in absence of a valid passport, the following document can be used:
Certificate of U.S. Citizenship issued by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service, formerly the Immigration and Naturalization Service-USCIS (INS)
Certificate of Naturalization issued by a court of competent jurisdiction prior to October 1, 1991, or the USCIS (INS), since that date
Original or certified copy of a birth certificate issued by a state, county, municipal authority, or outlying possession of the United States bearing an official seal
Consular Report of Birth from a U.S. Consulate (Form FS-240)
Certification of Birth Abroad issued by the Department of State (Form DS-1350)

Online Identification and Authentication (I&A)

You can apply for a certificate in two ways:
  Through your organizationís Trusted Correspondent
  An IdenTrust online registration process

Through a Trusted Correspondent (TC).
If your organization has nominated an individual to the TC position, you can visit her or him in person. S/he will provide a registration form "eca-id-form-mm-yyyy.pdf" that you will fill out. Or, you can use the one in this link. The TC will verify your identity in-person using two IDs, one of which should have a picture and prove your citizenship. The TC will submit the application to IdenTrust. A few days later, you will receive a letter with information on how to retrieve your certificate.

On IdenTrust online registration.
If your organization does not have a Trusted Correspondent, you can visit this link where you can register for the certificate. Before you register, you need to know what assurance level certificate is required for your daily activities. Please consult with the owner of the application you will be using. During the process, you will be asked to download a form that you should bring for in-person verification of identity. You have two options:
  1. a Notary Public
  2. an IdenTrust representative
