As a US Government-approved Trust Framework Provider (TFP) under the Federal Identity, Credential and Access Management (FICAM) Trust Framework Solutions (TFS) program, and open to all, the SAFE-BioPharma Association is approved to provide policy and practice oversight for full-service Credential Service Providers (CSP), Identity Proofing members (Identity Managers), and Credential Management members (Token Managers). We are authorized to examine and certify that the identity proofing, credential issuance, and credential management policies and practices of electronic identity credential issuers are comparable to US Government requirements for trusted (non-PKI) online authentication credentials at known levels of assurance (NIST LoA 2,3).
SAFE-BioPharma Certification means that authentication credentials from certified Credential Service Providers can be trusted and used at known levels of assurance by US federal entities such as NIH, VA, and FDA.
