NIST is soliciting applications from eligible applicants to pilot online identity solutions that advance the NSTIC vision. 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 applicants conference offers general guidance on preparing proposals, an overview of the FFO, and an opportunity to ask questions about the FFO. Attendance at an NSTIC Applicants Conference is not required to submit an application. The full solicitation is available online.
