NIST Special Publication 800-63-3, Digital Identity Guidelines, is now final
By NIST News - June 23, 2017
NIST has finalized Special Publication (SP) 800-63-3: Digital Identity Guidelines (4 parts): SP 800-63-3, and SP 800-63-3 A-C - those links provided below). After more than a year of work and tremendous support from industry stakeholders, contributors submitted 1400+ comments for review, and the web version of the publication drew 74,000+ unique visitors. NIST has released a suite of documents covering digital identity from initial risk assessment to deployment of federated identity solutions. Gone are the days of levels of assurance, replaced by more assurance parts designed to be more flexible.

The SP suite has also been reorganized. SP 800-63-3 is the mothership, the starting point for all things digital identity and risk, with SP 800-63A, 800-63B, and 800-63C covering the various components of a digital identity system.
