Open Mic

  • It was suggested writing the 800-63-3 executive summary in plain language.
  • It was recommended that technologists in the federal government (NIST/GSA/FICAM/vendors) take in consideration the demand-side to move the identity authentication forward and drive agency adoption. The current challenge to engage internal stakeholders who perform and execute the business operations (mission support) of the agencies is a critical gap that slows the technology adoption and leads to inadequate identification of customer needs and requirements. Director of Unified Shared Services Management  (USSM) is re-writing how business of government will be executed and he started with financial management business. Some use cases of Identity Authentication would help to tackle financial problems.
  • It was stressed that it is vital to start the discussion about the implementation of 800-63-3 and how to engage the stakeholders on the expectations.
