Economic Case Study: The Impact of NSTIC on the Internal Revenue Service

Published

Author(s)

Abstract

The National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace (NSTIC) offers a vision of more secure, efficient, and cost-effective authentication through widespread use of robust third-party credentials standardized to a national strategy. If successful, internet users would be able to use the same credentials to access secure online services everyplace they go online, saving time and reducing privacy risks. Websites and online service providers would be able to leverage externally provided, verified credentials and attributes, ultimately resulting in cost savings based on economies of scale and more services being offered online as a result of greater security.
