Support for development and demonstration of the Mobile Application Single Sign On (SSO) for the Public Safety & First Responder use case in NCCoE facilities which will be conducted in a manner consistent with Federal requirements (e.g., FIPS 200, FIPS 201, SP 800–53, and SP 800–63) Additional details about the Mobile Application Single Sign On (SSO) for the Public Safety & First Responder sector use case are available at: https:// nccoe.nist.gov/projects/building_blocks/ mobile-sso. NIST cannot guarantee that all of the products proposed by respondents will be used in the demonstration. Each prospective participant will be expected to work collaboratively with NIST staff and other project participants under the terms of the consortium CRADA in the development of the Mobile Application Single Sign On (SSO) for the Public Safety & First Responder sector capability. Prospective participants’ contribution to the collaborative effort will include assistance in establishing the necessary interface functionality, connection and set-up capabilities and procedures, demonstration harnesses, environmental and safety conditions for use, integrated platform user instructions, and demonstration plans and scripts necessary to demonstrate the desired capabilities. Each participant will train NIST personnel, as necessary, to operate its product in capability demonstrations to the Public Safety & First Responder community. Following successful demonstrations, NIST will publish a description of the security platform and its performance characteristics sufficient to permit other organizations to develop and deploy security platforms that meet the security objectives of the Mobile Application Single Sign On (SSO) for the Public Safety & First Responder sector use case. These descriptions will be public information. Under the terms of the consortium CRADA, NIST will support development of interfaces among participants’ products by providing IT infrastructure, laboratory facilities, office facilities, collaboration facilities, and staff support to component composition, security platform documentation, and demonstration activities. The dates of the demonstration of the Mobile Application Single Sign On (SSO) for the Public Safety & First Responder sector capability will be VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:48 Nov 28, 2016 Jkt 241001 announced on the NCCoE Web site at least two weeks in advance at http:// nccoe.nist.gov/. The expected outcome of the demonstration is to improve mobile application single sign-on across an entire Public Safety & First Responder sector enterprise. Participating organizations will gain from the knowledge that their products are interoperable with other participants’ offerings.
