On August 6, SecureIDNews released a new re:ID podcast episode in which Gina Jordan interviewed representatives from five NSTIC pilots about lessons they have learned through their pilots. Among the interviewees was our project director, John Wandelt, who offered several insights from our pilot.
Gina Jordan of re:ID recently interviewed John Wandelt, a GTRI Research Fellow and Division Chief, about GTRI’s NSTIC pilot award for its Trustmark Marketplace pilot project, as part of the SecureIDNews podcast series.
In the interview, Wandelt discusses GTRI’s background in information exchange, including its experience in developing technical specifications such as the National Information Exchange Model (NIEM) and the Global Federated Identity and Privilege Management (GFIPM) suite of specs. He then describes the challenges encountered during the rollout of GFIPM solutions within the U.S. law enforcement community via the National Identity Exchange Federation (NIEF) and other identity federations, and how those challenges led GTRI engineers to develop a trustmark framework approach to wide-scale identity trust across multiple Communities of Interest (COIs). GTRI plans to pilot this concept under its NSTIC award.
The podcast audio is available here.
The U.S. Department of Commerce’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has awarded a pilot grant to the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) in support of the National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace (NSTIC).
Under the grant, GTRI will develop and demonstrate a trustmark framework that facilitates cost-effective scaling of interoperable trust across multiple Communities of Interest (COIs) within the Identity Ecosystem and enhances privacy through transparency and third-party validation.
