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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
  • 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
