Biometrics.gov is the central source of information on biometrics-related activities of the Federal government. Two sister sites provide a repository of biometrics-related public information and opportunities for discussion. These websites, working together, were developed to encourage greater collaboration and sharing of information on biometric activities among government departments and agencies; commercial entities; state, regional, and international organizations; and the general public.
Biometrics.gov provides basic information and links to specific biometric activities in the Federal government. The site includes four main "rooms":
- Biometrics Reference. This room provides general information about biometric technologies, government programs and privacy planning.
- Presidential Directives. This room provides text of Presidential Directives that touch on biometrics or federal biometric activities
- NSTC Subcommittee on Biometrics and Identity Management Room. This room provides information on the National Science and Technology Council, Subcommittee on Biometrics and Identity Management. The NSTC, a Cabinet-level Council, is the principal means within the executive branch to coordinate science and technology policy across the diverse entities that make up the Federal research and development enterprise.
- Standards. This room provides information on federal biometric standards policy, and a registry of recommended standards.
