The nations digital infrastructure is in jeopardy because of inadequate provisions for privacy, identity, and security. Recent Internet activity has resulted in an onslaught of identity theft, fraud, digital crime, and an increasing burden to responsible citizens. The computer security and Internet communities have been generally responsive but apparently ineffective, so it is time for a third party to step in, take charge, and provide an infrastructure to assist in protecting individuals and non-person entities. This paper is a contribution to the domain of ontological commitment as it applies to a description of subjects, objects, actions, and relationships as they pertain to the National Strategy of Trusted Identity in Cyberspace initiative.
