NSTIC To Be Released Today
ONLINE PRIVACY—U.S.April 15, 2011
The White House is scheduled to release the final version of its National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace (NSTIC), an identity and authentication strategy that is the result of more than a year of collaboration between industry, government agencies and privacy advocates, InformationWeek reports. NSTIC is expected to be unveiled today at a U.S. Chamber of Commerce event in Washington, DC. One privacy expert describes NSTIC as addressing "one of the thorniest issues facing those who want to engage in significant or sensitive online transactions: the lack of standard, interoperable and trusted systems for proving online identity."
