By promoting government and commercial adoption of privacy-enhancing, secure, interoperable, and easy-to-use digital identity solutions, the Trusted Identities Group (TIG) works with its partners to drive trust, convenience, and innovation in the marketplace of identity solutions. Founded in 2015 as part of NIST’s Applied Cybersecurity Division, the TIG is committed to advancing measurement science, technology, and standards adoption to improve digital identity for individuals and organizations alike.
As outlined in the Strategy, the TIG aims to convene, facilitate, and catalyze a private sector-led implementation approach to advance trusted digital identity solutions built upon four guiding principles, and to enable government adoption by continually evolving our risk-based federal guidance to encourage the adoption of innovative technologies in the market.
Individuals and organizations employ secure, efficient, easy-to-use, and interoperable identity solutions to access online services in a manner that promotes confidence, privacy, choice, and innovation.
