The U.K.’s government digital service agency will launch its new identity verification platform for digital government services in the coming days.
Janet Hughes, GDSÂ identity assurance program director, wrote in a blog post published ThursdayÂ thatÂ theÂ GOV.UK VerifyÂ platform hasÂ passed the “Digital by Default Service Standard” assessment to address security, safety and usability requirements.
SheÂ added the transition to a live service isÂ a gradual process and the assessment works to facilitateÂ large-scale deploymentÂ acrossÂ multiple departments.
The organization will continue to develop new updates for the service and post more about the developmentsÂ over the next year, Hughes wrote.
DellÂ landed a two-year, $1.2 million contract from the U.K.’s department forÂ work and pensionsÂ earlier this monthÂ to decommissionÂ the Government Gateway systemÂ in efforts to transition toÂ GOV.UK Verify.
