Using Verify for Local Authority Multi Service Portals (Alpha Project) – Completed

Federated identity is a powerful mechanism for increasing customer convenience, enhancing organisational efficiency and transforming the way online services are delivered.

In the UK there is currently only one federated identity solution that offers highly assured customer identities backed up by clear, agreed standards. That solution is GOV.UK Verify.

The GOV.UK Verify registration is designed as a fully online process. Although this offers undeniable benefits, there is a significant cohort of thin-file customers who may not have any, or a sufficient digital footprint in commercially available data sources to meet the government standard for GOV.UK Verify registration.

This Alpha project, building on an OIX Discovery project*, demonstrates how the use of data collected by local authorities (LAs), made available to identity providers (IDPs),could help otherwise thin-file customers register for a GOV.UK Verify identity.
