How do I get a MITRE Partnership account?

You can receive an invitation from a MITRE user to access certain MITRE resources such as Community Share Partners sites, Handshake, and others.

Note: Invitations expire after 10 days. If you received an invitation, but it has expired, you will need to request a new invitation.

Alternatively, you can self-register for an account (see below), and specify a MITRE user as your point of contact (POC). Your POC will need to approve the request before your account can be created.

When you register, you can set up a password or present a DOD Common Access Card (CAC), if you have one.

 

How do I self-register to obtain a MITRE Partnership account?

  1. Click Register link on MPA Sign-In page.
  2. Complete the self-registration form. Fields with a red asterisk are required. Click Next.
  3. After you submit the form, the MITRE user you designated as your MITRE Point of Contact will receive your request for verification.
  4. Once the account is verified and approved, you will receive an email notifying you that your MITRE Partnership account has been created.

Your account will not be available for use until your registration information is verified by your MITRE POC. If it is not verified, your registration information will be removed from system after 30 days.

Point of Contact (POC)

Who is my MITRE point of contact (POC)? And why do I need one?

If you have self-registered, your MITRE POC is the MITRE user who is responsible for verifying your need to access MITRE resources.
If you were sent an invitation to create a MITRE Partnership account, your POC is the MITRE user(s) who invited you.

Once your account is created, your POC and/or other MITRE user will be responsible for granting you access to each resource.

 

What do I do if my MITRE POC is not available?

Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)

Why do some systems require multi-factor authentication to access?

Some MITRE Partnership Network (MPN) tools require Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) to safeguard Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI).

 

What methods are available for multi-factor authentication?

Most methods involve a mobile phone—either a personal or work-issued device will suffice:

  • Okta Verify—You install the Okta Verify app on your mobile phone, and complete a one-time registration process. The app now becomes the second factor.
  • Google Authenticator—Similar to Okta Verify, this app can be installed on your mobile phone. During the MPN log-in, you will be prompted for a six-digit code displayed on your mobile device.
  • Short Message Service (SMS, or text messaging)/Automated Voice Call. With this option, you will receive a one-time access code that’s delivered via text or a phone call. Because these methods are less secure than mobile apps, they may be phased out in the future.

If you work in a secure environment that prohibits you from having a mobile device on-site, please contact mpnsupport@mitre.org to explore other options.

How do I add additional multi-factor authentication (MFA) methods to my MITRE Partnership account?

  1. Log in from https://partnership.mitre.org and click Multi-factor Authentication Setup.
  2. After authenticating, scroll down to Extra Verification.

How do I remove a multi-factor authentication method from my MITRE Partnership account?

  3. Click Reset next to method(s) you would like to remove.
