Trusted Identities Group TIG

Mission Statement

By promoting government and commercial adoption of privacy-enhancing, secure, interoperable, and easy-to-use digital identity solutions, the TIG works with its partners to drive trust, convenience, and innovation in the Identity Ecosystem.


Founded in 2015 as part of NIST’s Applied Cybersecurity Division, the TIG is committed to advancing measurement science, technology, and standards adoption to improve digital identity for individuals and organizations alike.

As outlined in the National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace, the TIG aims to convene, facilitate, and catalyze a private sector-led implementation approach to advance trusted digital identity solutions built upon four guiding principles, and to enable government adoption by continually evolving our risk-based federal guidance to encourage the adoption of innovative technologies in the market.
