Technical Alert: PKI Optional Opt-In for MSRS
  • MSRS
Please share within your organization
  • Review the posted PKI documentation.

As communicated at the Tech Change Forum, PJM will implement Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) certificate based authentication to browserless transfers of MSRS as optional in the production environment on Sept 28 at 4 p.m. EPT.

Users willing to participate in PKI based authentication can use Account Manager to request access to a role called “Certificate Based Authentication Opt-In which then needs to followed by the member’s CAM approval of the request. Once an user’s access is approved, the user will need to provide a certificate to access browserless transfers of Capacity Exchange, DR Hub, FTR Center, InSchedule, Market Gateway, Power Meter & MSRS.

For setting up PKI based authentication:

· User needs to purchase a certificate from one of the approved certificate authorities.

· Link certificate from accountmanager and follow up with company CAM for approval.

· Update any browserless custom code to pass PKI certificate for authentication.

· Use latest PJM-CLI version 1.5.0

For any reason users want to opt-out, they can work with their CAM to terminate access to the “Certificate Based Authentication Opt-In” role.

Detailed instructions are available in the PKI User Guide. Stakeholders should contact Member Relations if any assistance is needed.
