National Institute of Standards and Technology. Deadline: March 17, 2015.

NIST is soliciting applications from eligible applicants to pilot online identity solutions that embrace and advance the NSTIC vision of an Identity Ecosystem Framework. Specifically, the Federal government seeks to initiate and support pilots that address the needs of individuals, private sector organizations, and all levels of government in accordance with the NSTIC Guiding Principles that identity solutions will be (1) privacy-enhancing and voluntary, (2) secure and resilient, (3) interoperable, and (4) cost-effective and easy-to-use. Pilots that maximize their contribution to the development of the broader Identity Ecosystem Framework through public forums such as the Identity Ecosystem Steering Group (IDESG) (see page 6 of the Full Announcement/FFO document) are encouraged. NIST will fund projects that are intended to demonstrate or deploy new solutions, models, and frameworks that either do not exist or are not widely adopted in the marketplace today.
