The next generation US DoD ABIS: Improving identity management and information and watch list sharing with partner nations

The US Department of Defense has prioritized identity information sharing with partner nations. However, before sharing can take place, the identity management capabilities must be in place, and standards and policies for interoperability met. Leading the way for improved information and watch list sharing is the next generation identity management architecture approved by DoD's PM Biometrics office. To help assure improved information sharing, a key element is that the underlying architecture of an identity management system must be constructed in a manner conducive to the highest assurance possible that disparate identity data is creating an accurate "identity," especially when that identity is used proactively to establish a security risk or access to government services.
