Digital government transformation Vs digital-identity function between the GDS and DCMS

Digital government transformation Vs digital-identity function between the GDS and DCMS

Since responsibility for digital identity policy-making passed from the Government Digital Service (GDS) to the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS), both UK government departments have had very different remits for boosting digital economy – within government systems and advancing accessibility of identity initiatives. 

The Tony Blair Institute for Global Change’s recent “Great Enabler” report, commented:

“Public services in the UK don’t require reform. They need transformation”.

Natalie Jones OBE spoke at Identity Week Europe 2023 on leading the GDS’ digital transformation, which employs 700 people to build, develop and run the 340 digital systems.

While focusing on reducing costs to taxpayers and streamlining digital services, all operated by different service teams across government, the main priority of the GDS is delivering a unified citizen verification portal called One Login. One Login will significantly transform 200 government departments – with more than 190 ways to set up accounts and 44 sign-in methods – into a federated, single login system which secures citizen data autonomy with the individual, and not the government.

In her keynote speech, Natalie explained the myriad of data models leveraged by the GDS for usability and minding privacy, undertaking a “transformative programme of work” from concept and scoping to full delivery.

Prioritising inclusion is also a cornerstone of the GDS’s role to underpin seamless access to government services with secure architecture, which has uncovered a lack of users with formal ID.

While the digital-identity policy function has shifted to the DCMS, the digital service has played a role in the provision of formal ID like biometric resident permits and driving licenses to login to apps that will migrate verifiable users to access a government service.

In the continuous pipeline, the GDS is currently seeking an infrastructure partner and developing cost efficiency of its services with agility.

Frontex’s update on Entry/Exit System

Frontex’s update on Entry/Exit System

Identity Week Europe brought its best edition yet to the RAI, in Amsterdam, bringing together 3,000 exhibitors, speakers from key organisations and visitors.

The most important event for the identity industry has once again delighted attendees with its biggest audience to date and high praise of thoughtfully organised content, networking opportunities to increase contacts, high quality vendor participation, and regional differences of the most important topics facing

As reviews already come in, one attendee described the Identity Week show as a “rich environment for dialogue” among a “diverse gathering of experts” across “policy, privacy, technical, practical, theoretical and global topics”.

“The best identity event ever attended!” exclaimed one visitor.
“A truly exciting and informative conference!” and “Best event in Europe!”.
“An excellent start to establishing Identity Week in Amsterdam.”

From all our highly credible and knowledgeable speakers, the opening hours across the two-day conference focused on hearing solo presentations from the likes of organisations such as Frontex, the DCMS, EU Parliament and UK Cabinet Office that delivered timelines, updates and revised strategies for implementing the most pressing identity initiatives for 2023-2024.

You could hear a pin drop in the standing-only keynote theatre while Claudio Kavrecic, Frontex revealed the final delivery date for the Entry/Exit system, the extreme humanitarian crisis unfolding with unprecedented numbers of crossings and spoke of the complexity of biometric pilots.

Across 26 member states, many countries are implementing the Entry/Exit system of managing immigration and collecting data from travellers entering the European Union however the UK’s departure in 2016 – quickly dubbed Brexit – has created additional unforeseen challenges of more channel crossings with visa processes being affected.

Burdened by Brexit and crises, an unmanageable humanitarian crisis has emerged for travel organisations. Claudio Kavrecic explained that the eLISA is working hard with the contractor and Commission to find a final date for delivery of the Entry/Exit System however the complexity of this challenge is currently playing out. While being easy to deploy and improving efficiency, biometric kiosks and systems need to be supervised.

He also said there is nothing “more complex than a seaport – airports are far less complex than seaports” to deploy biometric systems that can optimise efficiency.

The process of implementing biometric systems and pilots will be progressive but the complexity around the Entry/Exit programme will affect contracting and require additional training for border guards and physical infrastructure to be prepared to facilitate safe and secure border crossing.

Moving ahead, the Entry/Exit system will be optimised from commission to European level.

In addition, a number of countries, for example, Finland and Croatia are testing the Digital Travel Certificate (DTC) where data will be transferred from the chip of physical passports to mobile phones, sending biometric information matches to border guards prior to travel. When biometric data matches, border guards will be notified.


European Parliament keynote kicked off Identity Week Europe 2023

European Parliament keynote kicked off Identity Week Europe 2023

Kai Zenner, Digital Policy Adviser at the European Parliament kicked off the first day at Identity Week Europe 2023 with an expert address delivered to a packed main keynote theatre.

Kai outlined the first set of rules on the AI Act. After 11 months of negotiations between member states and the EU Parliament, the next stage to implement the AI Act will be to find an agreement on the requirements for technology providers between member states and parliamentarians. 

In the beginning, law enforcement authorities and member states pushed back on prohibitions proposed in the AI Act, and while this has progressed the 

Delivering the first keynote of Identity Week Europe 2024, he set out the first set of rules for the AI Act, expanding on requirements. 

“With a black and white approach, it becomes difficult to navigate”, he said. 

“We cannot exclude positive use cases”, “this shows us what should not be prohibited in the future”. As the AI Act has been accepted, the useful purposes of biometric technology to enhance the quality of police investigations in catching offenders – and sharing biometric data with relevant authorities, such as border control bodies managing immigration – has been recognised as well as the “inherent” level of bias within technologies forgotten as solution providers mitigate bias. 

While careful in their approach to begin with, the Act has been better defined through parliamentary votes to ensure that AI encompasses the potential for “surveillance” or anti-privacy practices with biometric and emerging technologies. Different political camps emerged for and against embracing AI technologies or creating supportive regulation. With a second wave of AI, deep learning and machine learning, the Act is needed to create standards surrounding the use of these technologies – minding privacy and obtaining consent for the collection, storage and exchange of personal AI data. 

With machine regulation and GDPR, lots of legislation existed. 

In his speech, Kai stressed the European Parliament’s next objectives to create AI legislation, including optimising government mechanisms and ensuring that EU level can work effectively with national level to observe rules for AI. 

An issue with passing the regulation concerned overlapping competence and responsibilities with one party giving a statement that the other conflicted, while some considered there is too much legislation and not enough convergence.

Identity Week Europe: Establishing government frameworks for national identity systems

Identity Week Europe: Establishing government frameworks for national identity systems

One of our thought-led panel sessions will be exploring accessibility, retention and safety for physical national ID systems.

How are national identity systems led by governments governed with suitable frameworks and how does this translate to efficient delivery of physical identity documents for all?

First delving into the policy perspective, Emrys Schoemaker, Senior Research Director at Caribou Digital and advisor on “every day digital transformation”, will share the efforts they are currently invested in to establish frameworks for governments’ public and digital infrastructure, covering privacy aspects and inclusion. 

This will lead into a discussion on how ID initiatives operate “on ground level” with the delivery of ID for all citizens and current focuses on incorporating asylum seekers and refugees into national government ID programmes.

A key question will be: What are the top elements that should be considered when building a governance framework for governments building national ID systems?

With the U.S. not having a national ID card, the question will be asked if individual states govern their own ID systems, legislation or if an interoperable legislation connects states. Carolyn Bayer-Broring who will be speaking on behalf of the U.S. approach to physical ID is a senior forensic document examiner at the U.S DHS Homeland Security Investigations Forensic Lab.

Ronald Belser, Research & development adviser, Ministry of Justice and Security, Netherlands will explain how the Immigra­tion and Naturalisation service is working on providing identity documents for asylum seekers and refugees and gaining their trust from governments.

The panel session will tap into ensuring accessibility to national identity with the ease of application and outreach to citizens and creating an interoperable framework with cross-border capability, especially in nations without a national identity system.

The Netherlands and the U.S. are similarly fighting against fraud in physical identity documents with false information and photographs being provided during the onboarding process to obtain passport documents. Combating fraud in national identity systems is an important aspect while enabling citizens to have an identity without much friction.

Additionally, what would the benefits be of employing a federated system or a decentralised system for identity on the national level?

Identity Week Europe: Hear our ‘Digital Onboarding in Govt Services’ panel!

Identity Week Europe: Hear our ‘Digital Onboarding in Govt Services’ panel!

Want the detailed brief on what our panels will entail at Identity Week Europe 2023?

Our stages are set and the highest calibre of identity industry speakers have travelled in from across Europe to prepare for the event’s opening day, which will be full of impressive technology showcases and advocating presentations for identity applications.

June 13: 11:20
Panel title: Digital Onboarding for Government Services

The scope of this session will cover digital onboarding initiatives from government providers for state-issued ID, discussing in tandem how we ensure we secure citizen data and cross-border compatibility with government data. Physical document security will be covered in another panel. 

The participants in this panel will be discussing how to increase usability and un-complicate the onboarding process with automated physical and online processes.

How can authentication be streamlined across borders?

Gabriel Marquie, Senior Manager of Digital Identity, at IATA is on this panel providing a relevant travel perspective in light of the crossover with government partnership and collaboration for delivering national IDs for travel onboarding. Our speakers will explore how additional advanced international cohesion can be achieved, especially for travel and the overarching eIDAS regulation.

Another important aspect of onboarding to obtain a government ID is inclusion in the digitalised onboarding process as citizens across the world adapt to digital services and applications. In order to increase onboarding participation, the adoption of digital and physical identity itself should drive government agendas, reaching isolated and homogenous populations and ensuring accessible applications.

The European standard eIDAS should have a broader reach and relevance on a global scale – we will look at how government can ensure eIDAS compliance on a worldwide scale, whose responsible it is for privacy – the person or the government – and asking would governments benefit from a decentralised platform for digital onboarding.

Join us for what promises to be the most thought-led industry forum in the calendar for 2023.

Daniel Goldscheider, Open Wallet Foundation: Developing open standards that underpin identity wallets

Daniel Goldscheider, Open Wallet Foundation: Developing open standards that underpin identity wallets

Daniel Goldscheider, Founder of the Open Wallet Foundation speaks to ahead of his panel discussion on identity and digital wallets at Identity Week Europe. He acknowledges that technology innovation has entered a new state of play with the combination of crypto, bitcoin and our valuable digital credentials with wallets.

The foundation is extremely valuable in the field and focuses on the development of open standards to underpin the variety of commercial wallets solutions available from vendors like Google and Apple.

The interview discusses the pros and cons of competition within the wallet market as the largest technology vendors capitalise on the new revenue opportunity. Our Editor, Evie Kim Sing, asks whether so many different wallets contributes to innovation or is detrimental to interoperability and compliance with open standards.

The fragmentation of their design and development impacts the security of wallets while customers are being encouraged to store all their digital, identity and payments credentials in one place. Daniel gives his take on how the security design of these wallets will be navigated by vendors as a challenge to adoption.

Asked whether every sector is taking a stake in the wallets, he said:

“Some people in the (identity) industry think wallets are about digital identity. People in the credit card world would say digital identity wallets are important because they hold tokenised credit and debit cards. The wallets are all of these use cases and so much more – holding everything from academic to healthcare credentials, digital keys to cryptocurrencies”.

The interview covers:

  1. What is the role of associations/foundations in the field? How has the Open Wallet Foundation evolved and what is the added value in participating?
  2. How have ISO versus open standards evolved?
  3. Do sectors like finance or government need to take a bigger stake in identity wallets, with payment or digital credentials?
  4. Do you think the competition of different wallets is beneficial for innovation or is detrimental to interoperability?
  5. What is the current standard of security in wallets? How can they be made more secure?

Daniel will be speaking more on the theme of  verification for wallets on Day 2 at Identity Week Europe 2023, which will take place at the RAI, Amsterdam from 13-14 June.
