About Skylar M.G. Joyner

Specializing in scholarship using empirical methods to explore, examine, and analyze innovative globalization intervention and collaborative efforts such as the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) that has significant biometric inclusiveness and Israel's Biometric Database Law (all Israel Citizens have to be signed up by July 1, 2017) that requires at minimum facial recognition, towards a unified single biometric identity outcome in the United States that has an existing infrastructure and capability such as the National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace (NSTIC). There is demonstrated success of pilot programs through successful expansion nationwide by both Israel and India to date that can be applied to the NSTIC in the future.

The framework of his ongoing dissertation is on the possibility that the United States of America can replicate India's single unified biometric personal identity system. This goal would be performed in specific strategic milestones that "individuals and organizations utilize secure, efficient, easy-to-use, and interoperable identity credentials to access online services in a manner that promotes confidence, privacy, choice, and innovation" (National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace, 2014).
