Personal Identity Verification Webinar


The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) will be hosting a webinar to introduce two recently published Public Draft Special Publications (SPs):  The 3-part Drafts of SP 800-73 Revision 5, Interfaces for Personal Identity Verification (PIV) and Draft SP 800-78 Revision 5, Cryptographic Algorithms and Key Sizes for Personal Identity Verification. These publications are complements to FIPS 201-3, which defines the requirements and characteristics of government-wide interoperable identity credentials used by federal employees and contractors.

The webinar will discuss the necessary changes made to the PIV card, its credentials, and cryptographic capability to align with FIPS 201-3.
