ePass Montana

Update Presented To:

Electronic Government Advisory Council

July 19, 2006


What is epass montana l.jpg

What is ePass Montana?

  • Federated identity management service

  • One person, one password

  • Moving all externally facing-services (Internet services available to citizens and business) to one username/password service

  • Service requiring security only


How will this impact state agencies l.jpg

How Will this impact state agencies?

  • MI (existing) services

    • Testing resources to test the implementation (should be minimal)

    • Generally no impact on agency development resources

    • Implementation schedule will be provided


How will this impact state agencies4 l.jpg

How Will this impact state agencies?

  • Internally developed and contracted (existing) services

    • Four development tool kits provided (includes sample code)

    • Support for developers provided

    • Timeline for conversion may be requested by ITSD

    • Development and testing time is a case-by-case basis

      • ITSD is happy to assist in this assessment

  • New services

    • Minimal impact

    • Resource savings


Why are we doing this l.jpg

Why are we doing this?

  • Increasing focus and attention on security with interest and regulations/requirements growing exponentially

  • Single security solution

  • Build it once, use it many times

  • As new security solutions (i.e. Real ID) and requirements are mandated, we only change it once


Why are we doing this6 l.jpg

Why are we doing this?

  • One auditable solution (by Legislative Audit Division, CIO’s Office, Office of Cyber Protection, and Federal Government)

  • To control one point of entry to state network

    • Decreasing entry points, increases overall security


Why are we doing this7 l.jpg

Why are we doing this?

  • As each service is federated, the strength of the identity is increased

    • We can do this better together than individually

  • Makes it easier on our customers

  • Increases adoption rates of our eGovernment services


Detractors and risks to federated identity l.jpg

Detractors and Risks to Federated Identity

  • “Big Brother” conspiracy theorists

  • Privacy advocates

  • Increased exposure if username and password is compromised

  • Single point of failure for secured services

    • If ePass Montana is down, all secured services are down


Federal eauthentication initiative l.jpg

Federal eAuthentication Initiative

  • Second week of June ITSD, MI and GSA met

  • Confirmed that the Federal Government went through similar issues and decision making processes as Montana

  • Montana is proceeding on the same path as the Federal Government

  • Good meeting as they listened to our model and why the federal model doesn’t work for us


Federal eauthentication initiative10 l.jpg

Federal eAuthentication Initiative

  • The Federal Government is very interested in getting states involved

  • States have more data to prove identity than the Federal Government does

    • Driver’s license information

    • Vehicle ownership

    • Voting records

    • Property ownership

    • Tax information

    • Criminal information)

  • National exposure as we might be the first state to participate


Conclusion l.jpg

Conclusion

  • The Federal Government really wants States to participate and “mandates” are foreseeable

  • For cost efficiencies and security oversight a single solution makes sense

  • Strategically, ePass Montana positions the State to implement other security mandates that may be placed on the State (Real ID or other)

  • Our customers will be well served by the seamlessness of state government working together in a unified manner
