The Department of Defense Identity Protection and Management Senior Coordinating Group (IPMSCG) serves as the senior oversight body for the management of the DOD’s smart card, PKI, and biometrics programs. Previously, three separate senior bodies were responsible for these programs. The IPMSCG merged the Department's Smart Card Senior Coordinating Group, the Public Key Infrastructure Senior Steering Committee, and the Biometrics Senior Coordinating Group into one senior oversight body.
The IPMSCG consists of general officer and senior civilian representatives from each of the armed forces, joint staff, the Office of the Secretary of Defense, and DoD organizations. The IPMSCG focuses on ways to use identity management tools while protecting an individual’s privacy.
