Peter Alterman



PETER ALTERMAN, PH.D., Senior Advisor to the CIO for Strategic Initiatives, National Institutes of Health will serve on the IDtrust Steering Committee until September 2016.
I have been intimately involved in creating and setting policy for federated identity management and PKI for the federal government for the past 12 years. I’m the executive sponsor for the only currently operational federated identity Single Sign On service in the government, supporting trust in electronic identity credentials from Federal PKI and affiliates, OIX OpenID and InfoCard affiliates and InCommon Shibboleth/SAML affiliates.
I’m a co-founder and co-sponsor of the NIST IDTrust workshop, going into its tenth year; I’ve been an influential partner of OASIS and Kantara Identity management policy efforts (I’m a former OASIS StC member) and I currently participate in the White House’s efforts to draft an umbrella electronic identity credential strategy. My full resume is available on LinkedIn. I believe my experience and current efforts offers broad and deep expertise in the policy and operational issues surrounding federated identity management and I would be honored to serve on the Steering Committee again.
