Meet our Speaker: Hildegard Ferraiolo

Hildegard Ferraiolo is a Senior Computer Scientist at National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) where she is the lead for the U.S. Government ID program activities including the recent completed revision 2 of Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 201-the standard for identity verification of federal employees and contractors.


Hildegard co-authored and developed several NIST publications in the FIPS 201 standard suite – including SP 800-157 Derived PIV Credentials for Mobile Devices.


Prior to leading the PIV Program, Hildegard launched the NIST Personal Identity Verification test program (NPIVP), resulting in the full accreditation of ten independent test laboratories and (to date) validation of over 70 PIV Middleware and Card applications products.

eTalk: Derived credentials into a mobile identity

By Hildegard Ferraiolo, Senior Computer Scientist, NIST, USA

In this session, the speaker will describe the U.S. federal government eID efforts to empower an increasingly younger and more agile workforce.


The speaker delves into topics such as:

  • Transition: How does the U.S. federal government make the shift from smart cards based authentication to the more agile anytime and anywhere capability of smart phones/tablets?

  • Interoperability/Federations: Does the solution or set of solution work across government?

  • Future: eIDs and computing platforms to look for down the line.
