The Secure Technology Alliance revealed that its government-focused event addressing developments and innovations in federal identity credentialing and access security will return to Washington, D.C. for its 15th year this June.
Securing Federal Identity 2017 will take place on June 6, 2017 at the Hamilton Crowne Plaza Hotel in Washington, D.C.
“For the last 15 years, this government-focused event has brought together thought leaders and executives across security, government and technology backgrounds, providing a unique opportunity for cross-industry discussion of the most important topics impacting government identity and authentication,” explained Randy Vanderhoof, executive director of the Secure Technology Alliance. “This year, the agenda focuses on emerging mobile identity and authentication technology and evolving NIST1 standards and future efforts to manage identities and control access to protect sensitive information on online government networks across all federal agencies.”
Keynotes, roundtables and panels will cover: federal secure identity policy and technology guideline updates from OMB2, GSA3, and NIST including the implementation of SP-800-63-3; federal identity programs and standards, including discussions on the future of FICAM4, PIV5, PIV-I6 and the Common Access Card (CAC) and the further use of two-factor authentication in federal agencies; mobile identity and authentication approaches to achieve strong authentication of derived credentials and other approaches including using FIDO Alliance mobile device protocols; the federal deployment of PIV and PIV-I credentials for access security using cloud-based solutions and Opacity for rapid authentication, and; a call-to-action discussion with federal government leaders on what industry can do to further accelerate the adoption of interoperable solutions for federal identity management and access security.
In addition to the conference sessions, an identity management and access control vendor showcase will be held.
