At the Federal Reserve Banks, we understand the importance our customers place on security. A key part of any security framework is user authentication. In the FedLine environment, user authentication helps ensure that only authorized individuals in your organization are able to access our information services and transact payments.
In response to customer feedback, and in an effort to more effectively and securely deliver our services, the FedLine user authentication process will be upgraded over the next few years. One of the long-term enhancements includes the migration of all FedLine customers to a FedLine security token to access Federal Reserve Financial Services, which is how the majority of our customers authenticate to FedLine Access Solutions today.
Over the coming months, the Federal Reserve Banks will contact FedLine customers with detailed instructions and next steps. We will work closely with End User Authorization Contacts (EUACs) at each organization to ensure a smooth and timely migration for their affected Subscribers. EUACs will be responsible for managing these changes and understanding which individuals will be upgraded. Throughout this process, the Customer Contact Center (CCC) will be available to support your organization and address any questions you may have.
In preparation for these enhancements, EUACs are encouraged to review the list of Subscribers in their organization that are authorized to access FedLine payment and information services. A helpful resource for EUACs is the “Subscriber and Roles Report” available via the EUAC Center. The EUAC Center also provides various self-service tools to assist EUACs in managing their organization’s FedLine access.
Enhanced FedLine user authentication helps to ensure continued reliable and secure access to the FedLine suite of services.
