Secure access to government services is a single sign-on solution for government websites that will enable the American people to access public services across agencies with the same username and password.

Simple and secure for our users

Through, users can sign in to multiple government agencies. The goal: make managing benefits, services, and applications easier, faster, and more secure.

The system replicates the design, performance, and experience people are used to having when logging into their private email or any top tech industry website.

Partnering across government handles software development and customer support of a login system so agencies can focus on providing high-quality services for people to use after they sign in.

A shared authentication platform frees up agency resources to deliver great services while reducing costs and improving security.


Led by the U.S. Digital Service and 18F, builds on groundwork laid by the National Institute for Standards in Technology, the Cybersecurity National Action Plan, and the General Services Administration’s Federal Acquisition Service.

We’re building the platform in the open and testing what we build with the public as we go. We’re working hand-in-hand with organizations across the public and private sector to use best practices and emerging standards in secure, privacy-protecting authentication.
