News from the Hill: National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace

The White House released today the National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace (NSTIC), a cybersecurity-based identity management vision and strategy.

The strategy was released during a U.S. Chamber of Commerce event. Rodney Petersen, EDUCAUSE senior government relations officer and managing director of the Washington Office, was among the 200 invited guests. Petersen reported on:

  • the plan's guiding principles—identity solutions which will be privacy-enhancing and voluntary, secure and resilient, interoperable, cost-effective and easy to use;
  • the government's plan to rely on the private sector to develop identities for online commerce, rather than creating a national ID;
  • and the plan's outline for a collaborative "Way Forward"
