ABSTRACT
<p>Password-centric attacks are increasingly common, and reliance on weak password technology has been a growing attack vector that threatens to erode confidence in the online world. Alternative technologies are needed to replace passwords as the primary method of online authentication. The US government's National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace (NSTIC) focuses on working in partnership with the private sector to remove the barriers that have precluded most of the country from easily adopting online identification technologies that are secure and trusted and looks to technologies such as the Common Access Card to securely manage identities.</p>
