NIST report: “Recommendations for Establishing an Identity Ecosystem Governance Structure”

"The National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace (NSTIC), signed by the President in April 2011, states, “A secure cyberspace is critical to our prosperity.” This powerful declaration makes clear that securing cyberspace is absolutely essential to increasing the security and privacy of transactions conducted over the Internet. The Identity Ecosystem envisioned in the NSTIC is an online environment that will enable people to validate their identities securely, but with minimized disclosure of personal information when they are conducting transactions. The vibrant marketplace created by the Identity Ecosystem will provide individuals with choices among multiple accredited identity providers, both private and public, and choices among multiple credentials. The added convenience, security, and privacy provided within the Identity Ecosystem will allow additional services to be put online to drive greater economic growth."
