The use of mobile devices has accelerated rapidly in recent years, compromising the high levels of security necessary for remote access, particularly within federal government agencies where the PIV program ensures secure access to resources.
To mitigate this risk, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has defined the use of a ‘derived credential’ for use on mobile devices. With derived credentials, the cryptographic credential is stored securely on a mobile device, and can be used to provide secure access to agency systems, services and data from smartphones, tablets and laptops. There’s no need for a dedicated reader, and there’s much more flexibility for users.
MyID delivers a complete derived credential ecosystem using currently available components and services. Federal Government agencies and commercial organizations are equally able to ensure secure mobilization of their employees, contractors and customers with derived credentials delivered by MyID.
