Exostar's Managed Access Gateway (MAG) is used to connect suppliers securely with their trading partner community. Exostar’s Trading Partner Manager (TPM) provides complete registration life-cycle for supplier invitation and registration. Lockheed Martin uses TPM to invite new or existing Exostar MAG customer partners (suppliers) to access the Lockheed Martin Procure to Pay (LMP2P) portal. It is a supplier self-service vendor profile management system with integrated Dun & Bradstreet (D&B) enrichment data. Suppliers use TPM to access Annual Socio-economic Self-Certification (NAICS codes), Executive Compensation Report Representation and the cybersecurity and NIST questionnaires as well as perform routine profile recertification.
Lockheed Martin’s Procure to Pay (LMP2P) portal represents an enterprise-wide implementation of the procure to pay systems suite which enables organizations to access Lockheed Martin's eBusiness functions through MAG. For more information on applications listed below, please view the Lockheed Martin Procure to Pay (LMP2P) Overview page. This includes access to the following:•
- Characteristics Accountability Verification (CAV)
- Field Quality Service Management System (FQSM)
- Schedule Management Module (SMM)
• Vendor Invoice Processor (VIP)
- Supplier Collaboration Hub (SCH)
Exostar’s Partner Information Manager (PIM) is a risk management tool that leverages information from trusted sources to provide a partner (buyer) with a supplier’s current and potential risk and impact. PIM allows a company to complete a questionnaire (Cybersecurity Questionnaire or NIST SP 800-171) once for the partner organization, and then later share, with the company’s approval, the same results with other contractors using the company’s products and services. A ‘yes’ response to the cyber security and/or NIST questionnaires will automatically trigger a subscription to the PIM application and require application admin appointment.
The Enterprise Access Gateway (EAG) allows Lockheed Martin employees to use their Lockheed Martin network login credentials to access Exostar and other third party applications such as NASA instead of being issued login credentials from Exostar.
Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) or Two Factor Authentication (2FA)
Due to the increase in frequency and sophistication of cyber attacks against the aerospace and defense industry, Lockheed Martin requires enhanced authentication used to verify the identity of suppliers and address cyber security risks associated with the Lockheed Martin supply chain. MFA or 2FA types of authentication allow users to gain access to Lockheed Martin applications using a credential such as One Time Password (OTP) or FIS Medium Level of Assurance Hardware Digital Certificates. OTP products and FIS Digital Certificates are purchased from Exostar. If you are doing business with multiple partner organizations and have a registered credential, you may not need to purchase additional credentials. The credential type depends on what the partner organization is set for their application to accept.
