Explore how public sector organizations are using Auth0

From providing vital citizen services, to enabling communication across departments, identity and access management can help governments meet their digital goals.

Central Government

Central governments deliver a variety of services citizens rely on, including work and pensions, healthcare, housing, infrastructure, and public safety. As governments move these services online, Auth0 helps provide the authentication solutions they need to communicate across departments and with their citizens in a safe and simple way:

  • Ensuring only the right people have access to sensitive information.
  • Enabling a frictionless user experience with Single Sign-On.
  • Securing government applications and safeguarding citizens against fraud with service level security, password policies, attack protection, and MFA.

Use case

G2C: Government to Citizen

When accessing vital services, citizens need a seamless experience. When it comes to digital identity, citizens expect more of the familiar and less of the fuss with an experience that mirrors the way they log into any app in the private sector. Auth0 provides a secure and fully customizable authentication and login experience—using SSO and MFA—so that citizens can quickly access the resources and services they need.

Use case

G2G: Government to Government

Governments need to enable data sharing and access between departments—but this requires precise authentication behind the scenes. Auth0 provides federated identity services or API authentication to make data sharing easy whilst ensuring security. Auth0 bridges the security and technology piece of this engagement, ensuring access is available only to the right people.
