The National Strategy for a Trusted Identities in Cyberspace National Program Office will host a workshop on March 13 and 14 in Gaithersburg, Md.
The workshop will focus on how technologies and standards can help the framework of the Identity Ecosystem coalesce. As envisioned by the NSTIC, the Identity Ecosystem is a user-centric online environment—a set of technologies, policies and agreed upon standards—that securely supports transactions ranging from anonymous to fully authenticated and from low to high value.
The two-day workshop will feature plenary presentations and panel discussions by leading identity management and standards experts addressing a broad swath of technology and standards issues important to identifying and implementing the four NSTIC Guiding Principles in the Identity Ecosystem, that chosen standards and policies should be:
- privacy-enhancing and voluntary,
- secure and resilient,
- interoperable, and
- cost-effective and easy-to-use.
