Taylor’s presentation, titled “Implementing Mobile Derived Credentials for Federal PIV Use” will discuss the increasing trend of mobile devices replacing the traditional desktop, how to secure these mobile devices utilizing derived credentials to help enable anytime-anywhere access to agency intranets and email for government employees and explore lessons learned from other successful implementations.
