DHS Conducts Nationwide ID Authentication Test For Emergency Preparedness

c/o Terra News … Freedoms Phoenix

“Northrop Grumman and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) recently coordinated a nationwide demonstration showing the ability to deploy a common, interoperable credentialing system that enables electronic identity authentication for government and industry personnel.”


“Individuals and organizations utilize secure, efficient, easy-to-use, and interoperable identity solutions to access online services in a manner that promotes confidence, privacy, choice, and innovation.”

Do we want this?  I believe the public asked for an additional 90 days to evaluate the program.
