Pentagon officials are considering the use of mobile devices to verify identities and manage access controls throughout the department, FCW reported Monday.

Amber Corrin writes the Defense Department wants to leverage technologies for near-field communications or to utilize derived credentials stored in microSD or SIM cards.

Greg Youst, the Defense Information Systems Agency’s chief mobility engineer, told FCW the government is still working to develop policies on mobility and public key infrastructure.

DoD is awaiting the National Institute of Standards and Technology‘s guidance on how derived certificates will address the Pentagon’s security requirements, Corrin writes.
