Announcing an Implementation Workshop on FIPS 201, Personal Identity Verification (PIV) of Federal Employees and Contractors
June 09, 2005

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) will host a public workshop to provide additional guidance on Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 201 implementation. The workshop is designed to provide clarifications and respond to the questions raised by the industry and Federal agencies. NIST has received many questions as to industry's plans to deliver products that are PIV-II compliant (i.e., meet the requirements of FIPS 201, PIV-II and NIST SP 800-73, end-point specifications). Commercial vendors have made significant progress in developing solutions to meet PIV-II requirements. The workshop will provide an opportunity for the industry to provide brief details to the participants, particularly agency officials, as to their product availability and planned timetables so that agencies can plan accordingly for PIV-II compliant implementations and procurement. NIST will discuss, in greater detail, the mandates and requirements of the FIPS 201 and related Special Publications through a series of educational presentations including the NIST reference implementation. The workshop agenda topics will be available at​piv-project by May 31, 2005.
