The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) announces a workshop to identify current and planned Federal government activities and related needs, general issues, existing voluntary industry consensus standards, gap areas in standards coverage, and industry capabilities in the field of storage and processor card technologies. It is anticipated that the workshop will support development of a standards roadmap, and a guideline on storage and processor card technologies to include multitechnology composition issues. The goal of this initial workshop is to develop and exchange information on the standards for and capabilities of multitechnology storage and processor cards. This workshop is not being held in anticipation of a planned procurement activity. The detailed draft agenda and supporting documentation for the workshop will be available from the NIST Computer Security Resource Center Web site at http://csrc.nist.gov by May 9, 2003.
