The federal government has announced a National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace (NSTIC), which seeks to better protect against fraud and identity theft, enhance individuals' privacy, and foster economic growth. The NSTIC aims to make online transactions more trustworthy, thereby giving organizations and individuals more confidence in conducting business online. Higher education has been at the forefront of innovative identity management practices, including the development of Shibboleth software and the formation of the InCommon Federation. This session will provide an update on NSTIC goals and initiatives and the role that colleges and universities will play in shaping the emerging identity ecosystem.


First piece of #E11_SESS045 more demonstrative of our national govt process than role of identity. Lucky I like studying American gov't.
