Global Federated Identity and Privilege Management

The Global Federated Identity and Privilege Management (GFIPM) Task Team serves as a Global Advisory Committee (GAC) subcommittee, supporting broad-scale electronic sharing of pertinent justice- and public safety-related information by recommending to the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), through the GAC, associated information sharing standards and guidelines.  In particular, the team is charged to develop and maintain a GFIPM framework that provides the justice community and partner organizations with a standards-based approach for implementing federated identity. 

The GFIPM specifications have evolved through a collaborative effort of BJA, NIJ, DHS, and major contributors, including the Criminal Information Sharing Alliance network, Regional Information Sharing Systems network, Pennsylvania Justice Network, and Los Angeles County Information Systems Advisory Body.  Mr. John Wandelt and the Georgia Tech Research Institute, are the lead developers and managers of the suite of GFIPM standards.
