The NIST-funded Digital Driver's License (DDL) pilot will run for two years. The pilot will be run in two phases, each about one year long:
- Phase 1 focuses on the enrollment process for a DDL, and establishing the fundamentals for the three main use cases: law enforcement verification, age verification and TSA verification.
- Phase 2 focuses on extending these use case application and to include online 'attribute sharing' with third party providers, whereby you can provide a trusted website (e.g., an airline or car rental agency) with verified information from your DDL.
The pilots run during these phases will cover organic day-to-day use as well as some staged events.
