Description and Specifications:
The Department of DoIT is giving notice of intent to award a contract as a Sole Source to: Entrust Inc. DoIT is seeking approval to enter into a sole source contract for 12 months. This is a new sole source procurement.The State of Illinois currently uses Entrust TruePass (TPS) to protect six enterprise Web applications. With support for Java in Web browsers being phased out DoIT must upgrade TruePass to IdentyGuard which operates without Java. Entrust Professional Services will migrate all current DoIT TruePass applications to the Entrust IdentitiGuard (IdG) platform.

DoIT needs to replace all TruePass websites with Entrust IdentityGuard services. Entrust TruePass servers rely on Java to function. Oracle has announced the retirement of Java browser plug-in support which will cause issues as users update to newer versions of Java on their desktops. Most browsers have either already stopped supporting Java plug-ins or have announced that they will stop supporting these plug-ins.
