In collaboration with the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI), a small group of public safety agencies and stakeholders has been working since 2021 to implement and pilot an Identity, Credential, and Access Management (ICAM) federation to enable secure, trusted sharing of sensitive information among first responders and other public safety personnel. Participant agencies deployed standards-based Single Sign-On (SSO) technologies to enable their personnel to securely access public safety resources owned by external partner agencies. In addition, participants deployed the trustmark framework, a new set of technical standards, software tools, and related resources that were developed by GTRI for enabling rigorous, agile, and scalable management of trusted inter-agency information sharing relationships within the public safety community. The pilot was implemented in conjunction with the National Identity Exchange Federation (NIEF), and it represents a major step forward towards a secure, trusted, and interoperable public safety information sharing ecosystem.
