NIST’s Trusted Cyber Identities Strategy Offers Funding for 2015 ID Mgmt Pilots

investment money exchangeThe National Program Office of the National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace has launched the fourth round of funding available for pilot programs on identity management technologies for online transactions.

Jeremy Grant writes Thursday on the NSTIC blog that the strategy will fund private-sector companies to develop online authentication technologies that use non-password credentials and foster transaction security, privacy and ease of use.

According to NSTIC NPO, the pilot programs should also address issues on civil liberties, usability, transparency, trust frameworks, interoperability standards and liability.

NSTIC launched the pilot funding program in 2012 and has provided a total of $30 million to support identity management projects over the past three rounds of funding, Grant reports.

NSTIC is a White House strategy under the National Institute of Standards and Technology.
