White Paper: Realizing the HSPD-12 Interoperability Vision

Increase Efficiencies and Establish Collaboration Across Federal Identity and Credential Management Implementations

ATARC Identity Management Working Group   |    April 2022

This paper seeks to highlight the persistent challenges present within the Federal Government about the redundant issuance and validation of Personal Identity Verification (PIV) credentials to federal employees and contractors and provide several recommendations to address them.

The ATARC Identity Management Working Group is providing this white paper for a 60-day comment period, seeking feedback from government and industry stakeholders. We will leverage this feedback, in addition to the recommendations noted, to demonstrate the ability to implement this proposed modernization approach through outreach to industry, and establishment of the ATARC Identity Management Laboratory. The lab will provide practical demonstration of government or commercial off-the-shelf (GOTS/COTS) solutions to facilitate agency compliance with FIPS 201.
