Views: 702

The General Services Administration, USA, is looking for ways to give the federal e-Authentication e-Government project a boost by bringing in more credential providers.

In a request for information issued this week, GSA is asking commercial and public-sector providers to provide information on how they could support public access to online government services. GSA said there currently are five public and private-sector providers issuing at least two of the four levels of identity credentials. Additionally, 13 agencies have at least one application using the e-Authentication federation. GSA said it expects the number of online services using credentials to increase to more than 450 by fiscal 2011.
