Focus: Develop a set of best practices and a framework for implementing the NIST Identity Assurance Level 2 (IAL2) and Authenticator Assurance Level 2 (AAL2) guidelines in health care

Work in Development: The workgroup is collaborating on several workflows that could serve as the foundation of an article or whitepaper that will be drafted to offer solutions for how the industry could use open standards and these workflows as an approach to federating IDs.
