The effort to provide government workers who use mobile devices with personal identity verification credentials is picking up momentum, with programs in both the civilian and military sectors starting to deliver on earlier promises. NIST, for example, released guidelines for derived PIV credentials nearly two years ago, basically an update to Special Publication 800-157, which describes ways to implement credentials on mobile devices. More recently, the Derived PIV Credentials Project  from NIST’s National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) will build on SP 800-157 and describe practice guides that agencies can use to start implementing a derived credential program.
