    Re: CAC authentication

    I think by default it is enabled.

    Do procedures exist to disable DoD CAC Authentication?

    Yes. Log a support case with McAfee if you want to disable DoD CAC Authentication


    Maybe you are talking about something else, please do mention is it MWG or Email gateway.?

    essentially the CAC is a x509 client authentication whereas the X509 certificate is stored on a card in this case.

    A rule set is available from the online library on This can be used as a template, whereas the user needs to select the card as source for the certificate.
