Scalable Privacy: An NSTIC Pilot for the Identity Ecosystem

The National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace (NSTIC) initiative is a "White House initiative to work collaboratively with the private sector, advocacy groups and public-sector agencies" with the goal of advancing the "NSTIC vision that individuals and organizations adopt secure, efficient, easy-to-use, and interoperable identity credentials to access online services in a way that promotes confidence, privacy, choice and innovation." The Internet2 Scalable Privacy Project (ScalePriv) is one of five pilot projects to receive funding from the first round of pilot funding in September 2012. The ScalePriv Project contains several major thrusts around identity and privacy, including a focus on:

  1. Promoting the adoption of Multi-factor Authentication (MFA) across Higher Education institutions
  2. Attribute ecosystem development: Attribute Registries, Bundles and Application Categories
  3. Citizen-centric Schema
  4. Privacy Manager
  5. Anonymous credentials

Key focus areas of the ScalePriv Project

1. Multi-Factor Authentication

2. Attribute Registries, Bundles and Application Categories

A Note on Terminology

On these pages we will often group applications into application categories. It will sometimes be useful to group attributes into various attribute bundles based on their common applicability to a set of use cases. A given attribute bundle may be associated with a particular application category when the attributes in that bundle are generally required or useful for the operation of applications in that category.

3. Citizen Centric Schema

4. Privacy Manager

5. Anonymous credentials
