New This Year: Co-located with the TSCP Trusted Cyber Collaboration Workshop, the leading event for transglobal secure collaboration. Super-Pass Upgrade Available: Access both Government Conference and TSCP Workshop.
The Smart Card Alliance Government Conference was established over a decade ago, following the landmark government-wide security directive signed in August, 2004. HSPD-12 established standards for verifying an individual’s identity and issuing a tamper-proof credential that could be rapidly authenticated electronically. The conference has become the annual gathering place for the original leaders of this initiative as well as the current heads of federal agencies and industry leaders who continue to set the standards for identity credentialing and access security. This year’s conference will look forward to future developments in policy and evolving standards for government-issued credentials and their use by relying parties in physical and logical access systems, including use with mobile devices.
Building on years of development and millions of government-issued smart cards, the Smart Card Alliance Government Conference features comprehensive coverage of efforts toward strong authentication technology in government identity programs. This year’s conference will survey opportunities and challenges for government issuers, accreditation and testing authorities, procurement programs, and the industry to meet the government‘s market demands.
Over 70 speakers will address efforts toward strong authentication technology in government identity programs, including Personal Identity Verification (PIV) credentials, developments in National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace (NSTIC), trusted ID on the Internet and on mobile devices, developments in state and local ID, and evolving global standards.
Following recent government efforts, the conference features an expanded agenda for the healthcare sector. Smart health ID cards provide a privacy-sensitive, secure solution with significant benefits to healthcare providers. Conference sessions will reflect and amplify the industry-leading work of the Smart Card Alliance Healthcare and Identity Councils. This year’s conference also features an expanded look at biometric security solutions.
