 >> Moderator: Because although you cannot seeher, I am reminded that we need to leave thisspace and time to allow time to set up for thepress conference at 1:30. They need to get theroom set upfor that. We need to move quickly around here.But we're really ex quiz Italy positioned becauseso far this morning, we've been talking aboutstrengths and weaknesses of different approaches imeta sense in a large theoretical sense of how wedeal with identity. And this panel will speakmore specifically about how those challenges havebeen addressed and dealt with or the challenges ththey still present in existing systems that havebeen implemented or that are being planned to beimplemented from birth certificates to passportsto drivers' licenses to private industryauthentication issues. And so let's just getright into it. As with all the other panels, it'squite a distinguished group of participants.Our first speaker is Garland Land who is theexecutive director of the national association for public health statistics and information systems.He has been at NAPHS since 2005 and actually hefought from the frontlines when he was a stateregistrar for vital records in the state of MissouOur next speaker will be Patti Cogswell. And sheis on temporary assignment of the acting associatedirector for the screening coordination office atthe Department of Homeland Security. And her portfolio includes harmonizing policies andinvestments for identity management and peoplescreening activities. Our third speaker today isToby Levin who is perhaps the highest credentialthat she'sfor merely of the Federal Trade commission, andit's wonderful to have her back. Toby is also if the Department of Homeland Security. She works inthe privacy office advising the chief privacyofficer and internal and external privacy mattersand she's very much involved on the privacy issuesrelated to real ID. David is a director of thegeneral services administration. Now this is adifference between government and the privatesector. Will you ever have anyone at your bank
with a title that long? But he's going to talk tous this morning about government implementation of HSPD-12, which has to do with the standardizationof federal credentials and how that is comingalong. And again the challenges that we see inthat respect with the whole authentication universAnd also is John Byrne from the bank of America.He recently joined the bank of America after spending 22 years with the American bankers'association. In 2007 he became regulatory relatioexecutive. Very nice. Elegant. And isresponsible for working with if he had ranAllstate agencies, nonindustry organizations on ovarious regulatory and risk issues. We thank youfor being here.We have two other participants we call our discussants. Sheldon is with AMVA. He's on thefront page. Seldon, he's the Vice President of law enforcement for the American vehicleadministrators.'s erelated to the implementation of real ID andgeneral authentication issues. He also probablybrings a perspective on the need in certaincontexts for a centralized database because hisbackground islaw enforcement. He is an integral member of theteam here and our approach on identity management.Our second discussant is Ari Schwartz. He is thedeputy director for the center for democracy andtechnology here in D. C. He's active in expandingaccess to government information via the Internet.As we heard in our first panel with Simon and Gus,probably the largest issue that we deal within developing appropriate identity or authentication approaches has to do with privacy.So he will be a key stakeholder and we're lookingtowards his insights on the issues that have beendiscussedso far.So the sequence of our panel is first Garland willspeak, then Patty, Toby, and David and John. TheFinal Four have PowerPoint presentations that talkabout some of the high level issues in their authentication issues, and then we'll have Ari andSeldan speak. You will notice that I'm the onlyone that doesn't have an identity. So as people
get up, I will take their identity.identity?>> GARLAND LAND: I'd like to give you a little bitof a background on the vital statistics in thenation, some of the changes that are going on.Some of them are automated activities and some areother changes. The state vital statistics for theUnited States is a state system. It's not anational system. Not a federal system. It'sgoverned by 57 jurisdictions, all the states, theterritories and D. C. and New York City. Andthose are where birth certificates are registered.There are over 6400 local jurisdictions inaddition to those 57 that issue birthcertificates. Whatkind of holds that system together is there aremodel laws and model regulations that the stateshave passed that are somewhat similar from one jurisdiction to another but not exactly the same.The birth certificate has been labeled as agreater document because if you have a birthcertificate or have one, you can get a passport,you can get a Social Security card or you can geta driver'slicense. And that basically is what establishes,for the most part, identity to some extent in theUnited States.The 9/11 commission realized that there areserious problems with the birth certificate systemin the United States, and there have been twofederal laws now that have passed that are tryingaddress some of those issues. One is theintelligence reform and terrorism prevention actand those regulations are going to come out in thefall of this year. And those relate directly to svital statistics operations. And the other is thereal ID act and those regulations just came outthis last month and there will be speakers talkingabout those. But they also impact our operations.There's basically two ways in which birthcertificates are used to create false identities.One is a falsifying of the birth certificateitself. The other is to use somebody else's birthcertificatefor false identity purposes. So let me talk
