National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace (NSTIC) Privacy Pilots Cooperative Agreement Program
NIST is soliciting applications from eligible applicants to pilot privacy-enhancing technologies that embrace and advance the NSTIC vision and contribute to the maturity of the identity ecosystem the NSTIC envisions: Promote secure, user-friendly ways to give individuals and organizations confidence in their online interactions. Specifically, the Federal government seeks to initiate and support pilots that address the needs of individuals, private sector organizations, and all levels of government in accordance with the NSTIC guiding principles that identity solutions will be (1) privacy-enhancing and voluntary, (2) secure and resilient, (3) interoperable, and (4) cost-effective and easy-to-use. NIST will fund projects that are intended to demonstrate or deploy new solutions that either do not exist or are not widely adopted in the marketplace today.
