NIST is pleased to announce the preliminary (working paper) draft of Federal Information Processing 201, Federal Personal Identity Verification standard. This standard, developed in response to HSPD-12, specifies a framework, architecture, and technical requirements for a comprehensive federal personal identity verification system. We are especially looking for general comments on high level concepts to assist us in crafting the next draft of the FIPS. While we will consider all comments received in development of the next draft, we may not be able to respond directly to all comments. We are working on the Formal Public Draft of FIPS 201, and early receipt of views that may be of particular interest to your Department or Agency will be essential to our revision efforts. Please provide comments by October 30, 2004 to NIST at DraftFIPS201@nist.gov.
