Transition to the Defense Biometrics Identification System (DBIDS)

On September 1, 2018, MCB Hawaii will transition to a new government-owned access control system called Defense Biometric Identification System (DBIDS). DBIDS is a DoD identity authentication and force protection tool that is fully operational in military locations around the world. Utilizing a combination of biometric and smartcard-based cryptographic authentication, DBIDS prevents unauthorized access attempts while also identifying personnel with law enforcement alerts. DBIDS is replacing RAPIDGate and MCB Hawaii Contractor credentials for contractors/vendors/service providers and other non-DoD affiliated personnel requiring unescorted installation access. There is no cost for a DBIDS credential.

Personnel with a Common Access Card or a variation of the Uniformed Services Identification Card are automatically enrolled in DBIDS after their first ID scan by the gate sentry upon entering MCB Hawaii, Camp H. M. Smith, or Pu’uloa Rifle Range Complex.

Effective 01 September 2018, until further notice, PMO will conduct 100% identification checks of all personnel entering MCB Hawaii, Camp H. M. Smith, and Pu’uloa Rifle Range Complex. Personnel will present their CAC or Uniformed Services Identification Card to the gate sentry for DBIDS enrollment. Expect a 3-6 second delay per ID card scan for enrollment. Passengers are requested to have their ID card available before approaching the gate.
