Administration Seeks Continued Funding of Online Authentication System

May 7, 2012

The Office of Management and Budget pushed out a policy statement on Monday criticizing cuts to programs contained in HR 5326, the bill funding Commerce and Justice, Science, and Related Agencies, that was reported out of the Appropriations Committee last week.

Among other cuts, the administration objected to proposed defunding of the National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace (NSTIC) initiative of the National Institute for Standards and Technology. According to its website, NSTIC is designed as a public-private initiative to provide a framework for Internet users to validate their identities online for the purposes of securing their personal information.

The Administration statement said the continued funding of NSTIC, "is required to demonstrate new identity management solutions that will protect individuals, business, and agencies from cyber-crimes."

The Senate version of the bill contains the administration's request for $24 million for the initiative.
