Take a Three Minute Tour of the Smart Card Alliance Government Conference

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.
