AFCEA Answers - Identity Assurance

When it comes to cybersecurity, one of the biggest challenges is verifying the identity of the end user, whether it's for an e-commerce site, or a secure government database. The challenge is multiplied by the explosive growth in the use of mobile devices in both the public and private sector. On this edition of AFCEA Answers, we'll look at government efforts in the realm of identity assurance with Ken Gantt, Acting Deputy Director of the Office of Biometric Identity Management (OBIM) with the Department of Homeland Security. And, we'll examine the work of the multi-institution Center for Identity Technology Research (CITeR), delving into "next-generation" solutions for identity assurance, with its director, Dr. Stephanie Schuckers, a professor at Clarkson University in Pottsdam, NY.
