In this session Hart will address the ongoing issues surrounding the management of multiple forms of identification for users in day to day affairs to transact with government, companies and other citizens. Often times, these transactions require a different form of authentication and in response to these disparate security requirements governments have established legislation, such as HIPAA, FFIEC, Sarbanes-Oxley and the Homeland Security Presidential Directive-12 (HSPD-12), to lay the groundwork for standardizing how we identify users. Government agencies have begun to implement such a framework by adopting smart cards for their employee and contractor identification as part of HSPD-12. Hart will present the current trends involved in establishing this framework for strong proof-of-identity in e- commerce and the government sector, and its application in national ID and corporate ID programs, and anti-terrorism.
