Foster Innovation and Efficiency

For our Nation to continue to drive economic growth over the Internet, we must provide individuals and organizations the ability and the option to securely identify each other. The National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace (NSTIC) acknowledges that some of the technologies needed to solve this problem are emerging , but there is still much work to be done.

The NSTIC is enabling identity solutions where none exist and prescribing a baseline of privacy, security, interoperability, and ease of use that will  influence the marketplace, address barriers to adoption, and create a framework to support a viable Identity Ecosystem.
