Overview

With the publication of FIPS 201-2, the ability to place an HSPD-12-compliant credential onto a mobile platform became permissible as defined in the draft NIST Special Publication 800-157. This allows for greater flexibility for future PIV-enabled applications and operations, as the traditional challenges of leveraging strong public key cryptography in mobile devices can be met by derived credentials. This white paper explores proven deployment methods and real-world use cases for deriving a mobile identity from an existing credential.
