NIST is soliciting applications from eligible applicants to pilot online identity solutions that embrace and advance the NSTIC vision: that individuals and organizations utilize secure, efficient, easy-to-use, and interoperable identity credentials to access online services in a manner that promotes confidence, privacy, choice, and innovation. Specifically, the Federal government seeks to initiate and support pilots that address the needs of individuals, private sector organizations and all levels of government in accordance with the NSTIC Guiding Principles that identity solutions will be (1) privacy-enhancing and voluntary, (2) secure and resilient, (3) interoperable, and (4) cost-effective and easy-to-use. NIST will fund pilot projects that are intended to test or demonstrate new solutions, models or frameworks that are not widely available in the marketplace today. The full solicitation is available at http://www.nist.gov/nstic/NSTIC-Pilot-FFO-01-2014.pdf . The applicant's conference offered general guidance on preparing proposals, an overview of the FFO and an opportunity answer questions about the FFO. Attendance at an NSTIC Applicant's Conference was not required to submit an application.
