NIST has produced a revised version of NIST Special Publication (SP) 800-85B, PIV Data Model Conformance Test Guidelines. The revisions include additional tests necessary to test new features added to the PIV Data Model in SP 800-73-4 Part 1. This document, after a review and comment period, will be published as NIST SP 800-85B-4.

NOTE: NIST has made a one-time change in the revision number of SP 800-85B (skipping revision numbers 2 and 3) so we can align the current publication revision to SP 800-73-4.
