Public Service Sign-On Using Facebook

Ping Identity : 08 October, 2012  (Technical Article)
Single Sign-on Experts at Ping Identity comment on the balance required between security and convenience as UK Government considers using Facebook as a sign-on credential
Public Service Sign-On Using Facebook

The UK Government are considering using Facebook log-in details as a way of letting people access online public services, something that Andi Hindle, director of Single-Sign on experts Ping Identity commented on as follows.

"In order to strike the right balance between security and ease of access to services in today's digital age, Governments around the world are rightly looking to social networks as one piece of the identity puzzle.  

With the number of digital identities we are forced to maintain rising to an unmanageable level, it is exciting to see an increasing number of organisations use widely adopted industry standards to attempt to redress this issue. This move will not only foster the adoption of online Government services, benefiting citizens, but also reduce the risks and costs associated with identity management for the UK Government.”
