The latest round of NSTIC pilot awards announced by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) includes a two-time winner. MorphoTrust USA received a grant last year to pilot the creation of an electronic ID in North Carolina for accessing online services with the same security and identity authentication as in-person transactions. With the new round of funding, the identity company and its partners will continue work on an electronic ID while focusing on the prevention of state tax refund theft.
Three pilot projects have been chosen in this NSTIC pilot round: Galois, HealthIDx, and MorphoTrust. MorphoTrust’s Mark DiFraia spoke with Regarding ID’s Gina Jordan about the new project.
