Why PKI?

 E-Gov: government’s need for assured
  identity in electronic transactions with
  citizens, businesses, governments, itself;
 Security: need for high level of identity
  assurance for secure access to online
  systems and services.

Why A Bridge?

 Allow trust among members at known
  levels of assurance of identity
 Members continue to control their own
  domains and relationships (non-
  hierarchical)
 Expand trust span easily and minimize
  administrative burden and cost of cross-
  domain interoperability

Federal Bridge Business Case


 Source of interoperability for ALL Federal
  Agency HSPD-12 credentials (6.2 million
  and counting as of 3/2009)
 Source of interoperability with non-federal
  high assurance credential providers
 Primary author of master policies and
  methodologies (first among equals)


                 4BF Industry Forum April 2009   5
Early Use Cases

 Enable Agencies to validate each other’s
  PIV cards for physical access
 Validate desktop and network logins
 Enable Agencies to validate PIV-I
  credentials from external parties
 Support high assurance authentication to
  Agency Level 3 – 4 applications from
  government and private sector credentials
