New NIST Website Details Forthcoming Strategy for Trusted IDs in Cyberspace - top government contractors - best government contracting eventJust days after Secretary of Commerce Gary Locke announced a proposed Identity Ecosystem, the National Institute of Standards and Technology launched a new website with more information on the Obama administration's forthcoming National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace, which seeks to help establish voluntary identity solutions and privacy-enhancing technologies that will enhance the security and convenience of online transactions.

The new website also provides additional resources, including a link to a White House blog entry written by Howard A. Schmidt on setting up a National Program Office for improving online trust and privacy, and a link to the Privacy Policy Guidance Memorandum.

Hosted at the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research (and co-sponsored by TechAmerica, TechNet, the Churchill Club, and the Team for Research in Ubiquitous Secure Technology), last Friday's event featured a panel discussion with public- and private-sector privacy experts on the current and future real-world applications of trusted identities. Patrick Gallagher, undersecretary of Commerce for Standards and Technology, and director of the National Institute of Standards and Technology, moderated the panel.
