Importance of the Authoritative Identity Store

Supporting higher levels of identity is extremely difficult if not impossible with a low level of assurance identity infrastructure. The need to get things right at the start and to support the full range of use cases is all the more reason to adopt PIV and PIV-I as enterprise policy for identity creation and to establish this as policy and a requirement for the enterprise registration authority.
