Applying Measurement Science in the Identity Ecosystem Technical Workshop
January 12 @ 12:00 am – January 13 @ 11:59 pm
On January 12-13, 2016, NSTIC National Program Office and NIST’s Information Technology Lab will host a technical workshop, Applying Measurement Science in the Identity Ecosystem.
Participants will collaborate about ways to measure and compare the performance of key solutions in the Identity Ecosystem, specifically:
- Strength of identity proofing, both remote and in-person;
- Strength of authentication with a focus on biometrics; and
- Attribute confidence to assist in effective authorization decision making
This two-day event at the NIST campus in Gaithersburg, Maryland, will bring together leading security practitioners, solution providers, experts, and policy makers from across sectors. With the growth of available solutions in the market, the NPO believes it’s now time to improve the science behind identity assurance—and that the agencies and industry will benefit from better tools to measure the performance of solutions.
