Login.gov to be third-party assessed against NIST’s digital identity guidelines

The General Services Administration wants to build trust in Login.gov‘s ability to verify users’ identities for any agency using the service, so it’s having the technology assessed by a third party.

Kantara Initiative will assess the conformity of Login.gov’s identity proofing and authentication with the National Institute of Standards and Technology‘s Special Publication (SP) 800-63-3, the government’s digital identity guidelines.
