About the Federal Identity Forum

The Federal Identity Forum (FedID) has been the U.S. Government’s annual identity conference since 1995. Its mission is to bring together identity experts to exchange information and enhance public-private collaboration to solve the federal government’s toughest identity challenges and help ensure a vibrant identity community.

The government typically holds FedID outside the Washington, D.C. area to provide an immersive environment where attendees can fully dedicate their time and attention over three days. Because of COVID-19, and keeping the safety of all our attendees, exhibitors, speakers, vendors and staff in mind, FedID is providing a Virtual Collaboration for the 2020 event. As always, FedID remains a safe space for identity professionals from the federal government, private sector and academia to jointly explore new technologies and discuss innovative concepts that could enhance our nation’s security and prosperity.

Other Important Information

  Who Attends FedID?

FedID annually attracts over 1000 identity professionals who dedicate three days to information exchange and collaboration-building. Well over one third of FedID attendees are federal employees, with the majority being senior officials that personally manage federal identity programs or provide senior leadership to offices that leverage identity capabilities. They view FedID as their primary venue for explaining the status of their programs and ongoing challenges to the identity community, as well as receiving guidance and uncovering innovation solutions from the non-government identity community. The remaining attendees are identity professionals from private industry, academia, non-profits, and researchers from across the U.S. and internationally. For these attendees FedID not only enables them to hear directly from USG agencies but also, because of the event’s uniquely dedicated environment, to have substantive conversations with senior federal officials that are otherwise difficult to obtain throughout the year.

  Who should I contact for accessibility assistance?

AFCEA supports the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. Attendees with special needs should call (703) 631-6238 or email events@afcea.org.
