U.S. Federal Government's Identity Federation Framework

On this blog, I try very hard to keep my (Passions+Interests+Career) separate from (The Job). Since I often discuss digital security, privacy and architecture within the context of public sector service delivery, which fall into the former category, I would be remiss if I did not mention the update by the U.S. Federal Government to it’s Identity Federation Framework.

But since this particular topic does bleed over into the latter category, I will simply stop here with pointers to the public information on it. Go read, react, engage!

The FICAM Trust Framework Solutions (TFS) is the federated identity framework for the U.S. federal government. It includes guidance, processes and supporting infrastructure to enable secure and streamlined citizen and business facing online service delivery.


For the first time since the inception of the Program in 2009, we are releasing a comprehensive update to the Program to incorporate Agency implementation feedback, ongoing lessons learned regarding the operational needs of shared service initiatives such as the Federal Cloud Credential Exchange (FCCX), as well as updates made as a result of changes in the private sector marketplace of identity services.
