The goal of this project is to define and facilitate a reference architecture(s) for digital identities that protects privacy, is implemented in a secure way, enables equity, is widely adoptable, and easy to use. The concepts of cybersecurity, privacy, and adoptability are critically important to this overall effort and will be interweaved into the work of this project from the beginning.
The NCCoE intends to help accelerate the adoption of standards, investigate what “works” and “what does not” based upon current efforts being performed by various entities, and provide a forum/environment to discuss and resolve challenges in implementing ISO/IEC 18013-5 (attended) and ISO/IEC 18013-7 (over-the-internet) standards.
In the coming months, the NCCoE will publish a Federal Register Notice (FRN) based on the final project description. A notification will be distributed once this is available. If you have interest in participating in this project as a collaborator, you will have the opportunity to complete a Letter of Interest (LOI) where you can present your capabilities. Completed LOIs are considered on a first-come, first-served basis within each category of components or characteristics listed in the FRN, up to the number of participants in each category necessary to carry out the project.
If you have any questions, please reach out to the project team at [email protected].
