The aim of the programme is to deliver the commitment to develop a common public sector approach to online identity assurance, as part of digital public services. The intention is to create a common approach, which could apply across multiple public services. This would enable individuals to create a digital identity, which then can be used and re-used for secure access to personalised public services. This would contribute to a simplified landscape to support access to public services, which is consistent across multiple providers and easy to use for individual citizens.
