ATARC Derived FIDO2 Credentials (DFC) Lab

ATARC is a non-profit organization that provides a collaborative forum for Federal government, academia and industry to identify, discuss, and resolve emerging technology challenges.

ATARC’s Identity Management Working Group is currently focused on and requesting vendor demonstrations to show the feasibility of the issuance and lifecycle management of a Derived FIDO2 Credential (DFC) based upon previous guidance for the issuance of X.509 based Derived PIV Credentials.

By leveraging this workflow, vendors will demonstrate how to assert organizational attestation of the FIDO2 hardware token, strong identity binding tying a user’s existing PIV or CAC smartcard to the issuance of the DFC, and leveraging attribute based access control (ABAC) to provide attestation of the assurance level of the DFC during authentication. These controls are established practices that minimize the risk of impersonation, and allow for managing which resources an End User can interact with while leveraging a DFC. Currently, no such guidance exists for the issuance and management of FIDO2 credentials, and enterprise use of these credentials has been limited for this reason.

The Working Group Leadership includes:

Cheryl Jenkins, Working Group Government Chair, GSA

Kelvin Brewer, Working Group Industry Chair, ForgeRock

David Treece, Industry Vice Chair, Yubico
