US - National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace

(White House)
posted by Howard Schmidt. I am pleased to announce the release of the draft National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace (NSTIC). Through the strategy we seek to enable a future where individuals can voluntarily choose to obtain a secure, interoperable, and privacy-enhancing credential (e.g., a smart identity card, a digital certificate on their cell phone, etc) from a variety of service providers – both public and private – to authenticate themselves online for different types of transactions (e.g., online banking, accessing electronic health records, sending email, etc.).
