Personal-identification verification data model

Jason Miller, Government Computer News

The National Institute of Standards and Technology has issued draft specifications for smart cards to retrieve and use identity credentials under Federal Information Processing Standard 201.

NIST Special Publication 800-73-1 specifies a personal-identification verification data model, communication interface and application programming interface. The document also “constrains implementers’ interpretation of the standards to ease implementation, facilitate interoperability and ensure performance.”

If you have an opinion about this, now is the time to speak.
