Educational Webinar Hosted by NASCIO and the Smart Card Alliance - Personal Identity Verification Interoperability (PIV-I) for Non-Federal Issuers: Trusted Identities for Citizens across States, Counties, Cities and Businesses

Federal, state, local, and tribal governments currently issue numerous credentials to constituents for access to facilities or services based on a variety of endorsements. Many of the endorsements provide citizens with access to federally funded programs, but the issuance of credentials remains program-specific and has become a redundant process for many agencies and departments. Issuing a digital identity that has multi-platform credentialing options will result in improved efficiency and convenience for both users and issuers. To the extent such a credential is honored by commercial entities, it will also improve efficiency and security of commercial transactions, including on-line transactions.
