National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace, June 2010

Published June 25, 2010

This U.S. government draft strategy was released on June 25, 2010 for public comment. The White House stated,

" One of the near term action items of the President’s Cyberspace Policy Review is to develop a “cybersecurity-focused identity management vision and strategy.”  The National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace (NSTIC) answers that requirement.

The need for such a strategy is due to the rising tide of identity theft, online fraud and cyber intrusions, the proliferation of usernames and passwords that individuals must remember, and the need to deliver online services more securely and efficiently."

A fact sheet on the strategy is available here; for the full text of the report please click below.
