A vision for UK’s Citizen Digital ID ecosystem

Identifying a better future for all with a secure Citizen Digital ID ecosystem

At a critical time for UK government departments and citizens, we explore how the right approach to Citizen Digital IDs will contribute to maintaining national security while building trust in digital services.

Despite the mass shift of public services online, accelerated during the pandemic, citizens and organisations lack trusted forms of securing digital transactions.

Why UK government needs to build trust in Citizen Digital IDs

Building trust in the system is the first, and maybe toughest, obstacle. Government must ensure that citizens and consumers are safe.

The critical importance to all departments of a joined-up national Citizen Digital ID ecosystem

Most Citizen Digital IDs and verification systems are still in their infancy; they tend to be technologically immature or developed in silos.

Vision for Citizen Digital ID

Imagine a single Citizen Digital ID that can be used as a mobile key for your home and office, digital signature, to pay or vote, receive pensions and benefits, access healthcare, and prove your identity to police, customs or your bank

Building a Citizen Digital ID ecosystem

Citizen Digital ID is the cornerstone of trusted digital services from the UK Government, and should be built on a scalable, trusted, sovereign cloud platform.

Opening the Citizen Digital ID ecosystem up for innovation and monetisation

Governments are seeing opportunities to monetise their Citizen Digital ID ecosystems, for example, charging banks, which serves to improve end user experience, reduce operational costs, and act as a new source of income.

Citizen Digital ID and Atos

Atos brings experience of best-in-class Citizen Digital ID systems around the world:

In Morocco

We implemented a unified Citizen Digital ID platform for its 36 million citizens, and we created a unique Digital ID with a multi-biometric database for the Federation of National IDseo.

In the Czech Republic

We provided the system for enrolment and central data management of National eID documents (ID Card) and biometric data travel documents (ePassport)

In France

We are co-delivering the national Digital ID system, including live face recognition via ID-card reading and verification

In Denmark

We created an enrolment client and gateway for second generation ePassports; this contains biometric identification elements for compliance with EU regulations

For the Olympic Games

We built from scratch an accreditation and access control system with facial recognition for optimal security; this includes a physical badge with security features and controlled online verification
