REDUX: NSTIC national driver license database anchors in VA

"The DMV has entered the implementation stage of a multi-year identity management plan that starts with sharing authentication data across agencies so that citizens can log in once and access services across many agencies. 
In fact, the Virginia DMV efforts are a focal point of a $1.6 million NSTIC grant given to the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA) in September 2012 to work on a pilot. 
In addition, the program is targeted at gluing together state agencies, along with the Virginia Personal Identity Verification program for federal employees and contractors. And in alignment with the standards-based principles of NSTIC, the program will help support a trust framework with AAMVA, integration with other states via the State Identity and Credential Access Management (SICAM) architecture, and with agencies in Canada."
