The DoD Lock Program is sponsored by the following agencies: NAVFAC, PSEAG, US Army, DLA, CIA, DNI, GSA, and CNIC.   The DoD Lock Program is designated as the DoD technical authority for locks, safes, vaults, seals, and containers used to protect national security information (NSI) and arms, ammunitions, and explosives (AA&E).  The DoD Lock Program is divided into three branches: Field Support; Research, Development, Testing, & Evaluation (RDT&E); and Physical Security Equipment (PSE) Testing.  To learn more about the DoD Lock Program click here or call the Technical Support Hotline.  Our Technical Support Hotline staff can help you with information on security hardware selection, requirements, specifications, national stock numbers, purchasing, and troubleshooting of equipment failures.

The DoD Lock Program Website Has Switched to a Secure Server

You may have had to click through your browser security warnings, accepting the risks, to get to our website. Be assured that our website is safe and this change is required by an OMB memo. These warnings appear because your browser's settings do not have the DoD security certificate installed. To avoid these warnings, review this document for instructions on installing the DoD security certificate. Note that you may have to repeat this process over time because the DoD will issue new security certificates periodically. DoD-issued computers should not have this problem as the certicates are automatically installed.

The DoD Lock Program provides "Open/Secured" two-sided magnetic signs to the DoD community free of charge.  These signs will include the Technical Support Hotline contact information for quick reference in getting support for your security equipment.  It is good practice to use these signs on containers or vault doors in order to provide a visual status of the equipment to personnel working in the area.  To place your order click here.
