Technologies and new policies will be demonstrated and discussed to attending press. NSTIC, a federal cyber identity program, drew criticisms earlier this year on initial announcement for similarities to a national identity program.

NSTIC is a national online authentication program for public use under the oversight of the Dept. of Homeland Security."
