Full Title or Meme

A Credential that is derived from some other credential in order to use in a different environment.

Context

Credentials that were only provided in protected Smart Cards are now needed in other locations, like Smart Phones

Problems

  • The is a constant churn in the devices that Users can carry with them.
  • Many credentials have already been issued with yesterday's technology.
  • The new technology cannot accommodate the older credential.
  • The older technology will continue to exist along side the older technology.

Solutions

The US federal government relies on PIV Smart Cards[1] to securely authenticate and identify employees and contractors when granting access to federal facilities and information systems for existing personal computer applications as well as for access control to buildings. That need is not going away so the existing PIV cards will continue to be issued. The Derived Credential specification has been issued (final on 2019-08-27) to help move this capability to small portable devices that cannot handle smart cards.[2]
