Progress Report on the United States NSTIC Program

The United States National Strategy for Trusted Identity in Cyberspace was signed by the President in April 2011. This strategy outlines a set of four core guiding principles -- privacy and voluntary, secure and resilient, interoperable, and cost-effective and easy to use. This strategy called for a public-private partnership that would broadly enable trusted identity and secure transactions by building an interoperable identity ecosystem. This presentation and paper will discuss the current status of NSTIC, some important results and lessons learned from the research and demonstration pilots that were funded, and how NSTIC might evolve going forward, with special emphasis given to the potential impact (good and bad) for the research and education sector.
