BTC –  NSTIC or the National Strategy for Trusted Identity in Cyberspace will be discussed at Stanford University this Friday.   The program will be crossing into considerations of the Department of Commerce.  Oversight and execution of the program’s cybersecurity and identity perameters is currently under the Department of Homeland Security.  The project is due to be signed by President Obama in the next few weeks.

One of the major security issues with the Web is the emphasis on anonymity in the original design, making it extremely difficult to verify a user’s real identity. The NSTIC calls for the creation of an “identity ecosystem,” where individuals and organizations can conduct online transactions confident in the real identities of each other and the security of the infrastructure the transactions run on.
