NIST SP 800-63-3

With shifts in the standards of digital identity security, it is imperative that companies keep up with the latest guidelines imposed by organizations such as the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). By following guidelines, companies are better able to protect their internal resources and biggest assets, their customers.

Encountering malicious actors and hackers is inevitable in today’s internet-focused world. Preparing your company by identifying widely accepted standards and guidelines within identity security and verification will help accelerate the level of trust customers have with your organization. ID DataWeb has configured 3 services which directly line up to NIST SP 800-63-3 to bring a comprehensive and standards based solution to companies in any industry under hundreds of use cases.


We provide 3 levels of integrated identity security:

Verify –Identity Verification (800-63A)

  • Using a cloud network of 70+ global verification services, ID DataWeb verifies 3 aspects of your users – their identity, environment, and relationships. The result is a set of verified identity attributes and a simple score, which can be used for upfront user verification and continuous assessment throughout your relationship.

Trust – Adaptive Authentication (800-63B)

  • Verified claims can be bound to any federated identity credential as appropriate for your required level of assurance – from your corporate login service to a social credential (e.g., Google). Additional levels of two-factor authentication can also be added, including FIDO compliant solutions and biometrics.

Access – Trusted Federation (Single Sign On) (800-63C)

  • The trusted identity can then be used to enable simplified account creation, login with Single Sign On and adaptive authentication to an application, an enterprise, and a distributed business community. Organizations can share verified identity claims and trust scores across borders, while users can maintain full control of their data.

Finding the right solution to cover your bases with identity security can be a challenge. The market is flooded with options, but looking for a comprehensive full-cycle solution doesn’t have to be a challenge. Guidelines such as NIST SP 800-63-3 can help lead your organization in the right direction.
