The Smart Card Alliance is planning a one-day event to commemorate Homeland Security Presidential Directive-12 (HSPD-12).
The “Government Conference Special Edition Event: Celebrating the 10th Anniversary of HSPD-12,” held with support from FICAM and the Interagency Advisory Board, will take place on July 31 at the Marriott Metro Center Hotel in Washington, D.C.
The event commemorates the government-wide security directive signed by President George W. Bush in August 2004. The directive standardized the identity and credentialing efforts of government agencies and resulted in the FIPS 201 smart card standard and the PIV.
Nearly 5 million smart card-based PIV credentials have been issued to government employees and contractors for secure access to government buildings and IT systems, and the standards have been extended for non-federal and commercial use.
The event will include speakers reviewing identity credentialing and access security advances over the past decade, as well as looking at future developments for PIV credentials including their use on mobile devices and cloud systems.
In addition to the main program, a small identity management and access control vendor showcase will be held to enable government attendees to visit and learn more about the security products and services that HSPD-12 has fostered in the government market.
