Tim Baldridge has a passion for identity management, and the federal government is better off for it.

As chairman of the Federal Identity, Credential and Access Management Subcommittee's Architecture Working Group, he helped ensure the use and security of solutions based on open standards by developing federal profiles that deal with privacy concerns.

He also furthered development of the Personal Identity Verification Interoperability for Non-Federal Issuers to ensure the trustworthiness and interoperability of credentials issued by outside entities. Baldridge also leads the Interagency Advisory Board that gives government and industry an opportunity to collaborate on identity management challenges.

Thanks to Baldridge's enthusiasm and practical approach to identity management, federal smart ID cards are smarter than ever.
