Kim Little Sutherland: Group issues rules for the road for identity ecosystem

Kim Little Sutherland, plenary chair, Identity Ecosystem Steering Group

Four years after the White House rolled out the National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace (NSTIC), we now have the foundations the "identity ecosystem" envisioned within NSTIC. A volunteer steering group released Version 1 of Identity Ecosystem Framework (IDEF) last week. For the first time, it sets up "rules of the road" for companies, government agencies — hopefully making online identity management more efficient and more secure at the same time. Kim Little Sutherland, the Identity Ecosystem Steering Group's plenary chair, is also senior director of identity management strategy at Lexis Nexis Risk Solutions. She talked about the framework with In Depth guest host Jared Serbu.
