Free registration required

Executive Summary

Open government requires a way for citizens to easily and safely engage with government websites. Open identity technologies - specifically OpenID and Information Cards - fit this bill. They make it easier and safer for citizens to register, login, and when necessary share personally identifiable information across different websites and services. To bring open identity technologies and open government together, the OpenID Foundation and the Information Card Foundation are working with the U.S. General Services Administration to create open trust frameworks for their respective communities.
