It is clear that the entire justice and law enforcement community stands to benefit from a solution that allows user management processes (vetting, permissioning, and credentialing) to be efficiently and effectively leveraged and reused across trust domains, thereby facilitating interoperability between SBU information systems. The Global Federated Identity and Privilege Management (GFIPM)Security Interoperability Demonstration Project has investigated the concept of federated identity and privilege management (FIPM) as a candidate solution. FIPM seeks to connect existing law enforcement and justice organizations with each other at a high level in a business arrangement called a federation, and to use the federation as a basis for building trust relationships that facilitate cross-trust-domain interoperability at a lower level between resources and users and ultimately provide users with access to the data they need to be effective.
