GSA Issues Government-wide Cloud RFI - top government contractors - best government contracting eventThe General Services Administration Office of Government-wide Policy has issued a request for information on how to implement a privacy-enhanced, cloud-based, federated credential exchange service.

The request for information supports the Federal Cloud Credential Exchange Tiger Team, a program that aims to help agencies move identity management systems on the cloud.

GSA’s Deb Gallagher and the National Institute of Standards and Technology Naoi Lefkovitz, co-chairs of the FCCX Tiger Team, wrote in a blog post that the team needs “one or more commercially available cloud service providers to streamline the burden agencies face in trusting and integrating with FICAM-approved credentials.”

Gallagher and Lefkovitz wrote that the team is in the process of creating common federated identity management requirements for agencies.

Furthermore, the co-chairs wrote, the FCCX Initiative aims to address the cost, privacy, and scalability of using a third-party credential for user authentication in a cloud.

The FCCX Tiger Team will host an industry day on August 7 at the GSA OCS facility in Washington DC.
