International Biometric Group will host a free teleconference on government initiative HSPD-12 and biometric interoperability.

International Biometric Group (IBG) extends an invitation to participate in IBG’s monthly teleconference series today at 1:00 pm ET (10:00 am PT).

IBG will reveal the answers to these exciting questions:

  • What must agencies do to meet HSPD-12 and FIPS 201 requirements?
  • In what timeframe are agencies expected to adopt these new requirements?
  • How does FIPS 201 protect privacy?
  • How will these requirements support biometric interoperability in government deployments?

This month’s installation of IBG’s monthly teleconference series will address the most dynamic government initiatives related to biometrics: HSPD-12 and biometric interoperability.

Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 dictated the federal government to introduce a government-wide standard for secure and reliable forms of identification for its employees and contractors. Recent NIST publications such as FIPS 201 (Federal Information Processing Standard for Personal Identity Verification) and Special Publication 800-76, Biometric Data Specification for Personal Identity Verification, will impact the use of biometrics in federal and commercial applications.

Michael Thieme, IBG’s Director of Special Projects, will discuss the implications of these developments with a specific focus on biometric usage and interoperability.

There is no fee to participate in IBG's teleconference series.
