Technology changes propel PIV into the private sector

Changes in technology, the opportunity to cut costs, and new standards are moving strong authentication, as pioneered by the PIV and PIV-I credential, into the private sector. PIV and PIV-I, the Personal Identity Verification credential that government agencies have required for a while now, is being evaluated and embraced by government contractors, the banking world, bio-pharma, state government and elsewhere. In addition, a lower-cost commercial version of the credential, called CIV, has recently emerged. Also, the National Institute of Standards and Technology is incorporating new contactless solutions, such as NFC for mobility, into the next round of forthcoming PIV standards. The President's initiative, the National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace (NSTIC), seeks to replace user-names and passwords with stronger authentication in the private sector. Find out what these changes mean for integrators, end users and specifiers. Identive Group's Rob Zivney leads this panel, which will explore which vertical markets are already adopting PIV and PIV-I, what's driving adoption of strong authentication, and what this means for your business as a result.

Moderated by: Rob Zivney, VP Government & Standards, Identive Group

Panelists:
