Trusted identities management strategy nears completion — Government Computer News

Nov 9th, 2010 NS-TIC

Government Computer News reports in two recent articles that the final NS-TIC will be released "this winter."  The first article, entitled "Trusted identities management strategy nears completion" and dated November 4, includes:

The administration’s national strategy for identity management is undergoing a final vetting by the agencies that will be implementing it and is expected to be finalized within few months, Ari Schwartz, senior Internet policy advisor for the National Institute of Standards and Technology said Thursday.

“We expect the strategy to be signed by the president sometime this winter,” Schwartz said at an identity management conference hosted in Washington by TechAmerica.


The second article, dated November 8, 2010, and entitled "ID management's weakness: Few want to use it" states:

The administration’s strategy for identity management is expected to be finalized this winter. It is an effort to bring some order to the task of managing identities and personal information in an increasingly online world. … The National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace has been under development for about a year as the result of the president’s Cyberspace Policy Review. One of the review’s recommendations was the “the federal government — in collaboration with industry and the civil liberties and privacy communities — should build a cybersecurity-based identity management vision and strategy for the nation that considers an array of approaches, including privacy-enhancing technologies.” A draft was released in June, and the final document is expected this winter.
