To begin the FIS process after purchase completion, someone must submit a request to Exostar one of three ways: self-registration, administrator registration on your behalf, or Exostar can request access on your behalf.
You must have an existing Exostar’s Managed Access Gateway (MAG) account, and your organization must be subscribed to FIS before you can request FIS access. Please refer to the MAG User Guide for details on obtaining an organization account and user account.
Please follow the steps below to complete the self-registration process:
Step 1. Once you successfully login to Exostar's Managed Access Gateway (MAG), on your Home tab, locate Federated Identity Service (FIS) under My Applications. Select the Request Access link under the Status column.
Step 2. Fill out all necessary information under the FIS Certificate Information section:
Step 3. Fill out all necessary information under the User Information section. Click Next.
Exostar Administrators can issue individual invitations on a customer’s behalf. Once Exostar issues an FIS invitation, the user's FIS Administrator must approve the request. If the invite was issued for Medium Level Hardware or Software, Exostar receives the user's FIS request to action accordingly, otherwise, the use can proceed with downloading their Basic Level of Assurance Certificates.
