NSTIC is to be a new initiative created as a result of the Obama Administration's Cyberspace Policy Review, which called for building "a cybersecurity-based identity management vision and strategy that addresses privacy and civil-liberties interests, leveraging privacy-enhancing technologies for the nation" as of one of ten near-term action items. NSTIC will be focused on establishing identity solutions and privacy-enhancing technologies to improve the security and convenience of sensitive online transactions through the process of authenticating individuals, organizations, and underlying infrastructure.
The National Program Office, to be established within the Department of Commerce, will be responsible for bringing the public and private sectors together to meet this challenge. Specific responsibilities will include:
•Building consensus on legal, technical and policy frameworks necessary to achieve the NSTIC vision, including ways to enhance privacy, free expression and open markets; •Working with industry to identify where new standards or collaborative efforts may be needed to enable Americans to use - and businesses and other entities to accept - stronger, more secure online authentication technologies; •Coordinating collaboration across government stakeholders, including agencies such as the General Services Administration and Department of Homeland Security, as well as state and local governments; and •Guiding NSTIC pilot projects and other NSTIC-related implementations.
