FIPS 201–3 is effective on January 24, 2022. ADDRESSES: FIPS 201–3 is available electronically from the NIST website at: https://csrc.nist.gov/publications/fips. Comments that were received on the proposed changes will also be published electronically at https://csrc.nist.gov/ projects/piv and at https:// www.regulations.gov. DATES: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Hildegard Ferraiolo, (301) 975–6972, National Institute of Standards and Technology, 100 Bureau Drive, Mail Stop 8930, Gaithersburg, MD 20899– 8930, email: hildegard.ferraiolo@ nist.gov, or Andrew Regenscheid, (301) 975–5155, andrew.regenscheid@ nist.gov. FIPS 201 establishes a standard for a Personal Identity Verification (PIV) system (Standard) that meets the control and security objectives of Homeland Security Presidential Directive-12 (HSPD–12). It is based on secure and reliable forms of identity credentials issued by the Federal Government to its employees and contractors. These credentials are used by mechanisms that authenticate individuals who require access to federally controlled facilities, information systems, and applications. This Standard addresses requirements for initial identity proofing, infrastructure to support interoperability of identity credentials, and accreditation of organizations issuing PIV credentials. FIPS 201 was issued on 2005 (70 FR 17975) in response to HSPD–12. Subsequent revisions included FIPS 201–1, published in 2006 and FIPS 201– 2 (version in effect), published in 2013 (78 FR 54626). In consideration of technological advancements over the last five years and specific requests for changes from United States Government (USG) stakeholders, NIST determined that a third revision of FIPS 201 was warranted. NIST received numerous change requests, some of which, after analysis and coordination with the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and USG stakeholders, were incorporated in a proposed draft of FIPS 201–3. Other change requests incorporated in the draft resulted from the 2019 Business Requirements Meeting held at NIST. The meeting focused on business requirements of Federal departments and agencies. On November 3, 2020, a notice was published in the Federal Register (85 FR 69599), soliciting public comments SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 on the draft FIPS 201–3. During the public comment period, a virtual public workshop was hosted by NIST on December 9, 2020. The scope of changes reflected in FIPS 201–3 include the following: • Alignment with current NIST technical guidelines on identity management, OMB policy guidelines, and changes in commercially-available technologies and services. • Accommodation of additional types of authenticators through an expanded definition of Derived PIV credentials. • Focus on the use of federation to facilitate interoperability and interagency trust. • Addition of supervised remote identity proofing processes. • Removal of previously deprecated Cardholder Unique Identifier (CHUID) authentication mechanism and deprecation of the symmetric card authentication key and visual authentication mechanisms (VIS). • Support for secure messaging authentication mechanism (SM–AUTH). Comments and questions regarding the draft were submitted by USG organizations, private sector organizations, and private individuals. NIST made several changes to the draft FIPS 201–3 based on the public comments received. Many commenters asked for clarification of the text of the Standard and/or recommended editorial and/or formatting changes. Other commenters suggested modifying the requirements and asked questions concerning the implementation of the Standard. All of the suggestions, questions, and recommendations within the scope of this FIPS were carefully reviewed, and changes were made to the Standard, where appropriate. Some commenters submitted questions or raised issues that were related but outside the scope of this FIPS. Comments that were outside the scope of this FIPS, but that were within the scope of one of the related Special Publications, were deferred for later consideration in the context of the revisions to these Special Publications. The disposition of each comment that was received has been provided along with the comments at https:// csrc.nist.gov. The following is a summary and analysis of the comments received during the public comment period, and NIST’s responses to them: 1. Comment: Some commenters inquired about the effective date of the Standard. Commenters also inquired about the implementation schedule associated with the changes introduced in the Standard, once the Standard is in effect. E:\FR\FM\24JAN1.SGM 24JAN1
