NIST produced a revised version of NIST Special Publication SP 800-85B PIV Data Model Conformance Test Guidelines. The revisions include additional tests necessary to test the optional features added to the PIV Data Model in SP 800-73-2 Parts 1 and to update tests to conform to the cryptographic migration timeline specified in SP 800-78-1. This document, after a review and comment period, will be published as NIST SP 800-85B-1. Federal agencies and private organizations including test laboratories as well as individuals are invited to review the draft Guidelines and submit comments to NIST by sending them to piv_comments@nist.gov with "Comments on Public Draft SP 800-85B-1" in the subject line. Comments should be submitted using the comment template (Excel spreadsheet). The comment period closes at 5:00 EST (US and Canada) on September 25, 2009. All comments will be analyzed, consolidated, and used in revising the draft Guidelines before final publication.
