This project tested the following hypothesis: User will be able to present data collected and verified by organisations such as Local Authorities and universities as part of their verification with an Identity Provider. This will help improve IdPs’ coverage.
The project looked at 10 cases where data is captured, verified and then made available to the user for verification with an IdP. It also considers how the information should be captured (e.g. in the Digital Log Book) in order to be of most usefulness to the IdPs when verifying an individual’s identity.
This project has shown that there is value in Local Authority and Housing Association data for the Identity Providers, in particular in plugging the gap of citizens who are most likely to be unemployed and future recipients of Universal Credits.
