Optimized for security, authentication, and digital government with a seamless citizen experience

Auth0 acts as the hub to securely manage digital citizen services. Anyone in government knows that there are always moving pieces that need to be done right.

Balancing modernization with legacy processes and budget constraints is not easy. Providing access and secure authentication is not easy. Offering a seamless digital citizen experience that is compliant and secure is not easy.

Auth0 can help.

Auth0 gives government agencies the identity building blocks they need to centralize citizen access management across applications and devices to offer a frictionless user experience that is secure and highly scalable.

How Auth0 works with State and Local Governments

As we shift to a more digitized government, secure and seamless access to services such as unemployment insurance, taxes, permits, and licensing is top of mind. To achieve this, a robust identity and access management (IAM) is essential.

Auth0 is interoperable with custom in-house build applications and GovTech SaaS companies to provide a frictionless universal login experience. This lets citizens quickly access the apps and services they need, with authentication working seamlessly in the background.

Auth0 deals with authentication, so you can do everything else.

How Auth0 works with the Federal Government

The Federal Government is responsible for vital citizen services, such as Medicare and health benefits, social security, immigration and naturalization services, and student loans. These services depend on authentication. It’s critical that the citizen accessing the service is indeed who they say they are.

With Auth0, you can easily manage authentication and authorization. Auth0 adheres to industry standards such as SOC2, HIPAA, and NIST 800-63-3. Leave identity and access management (IAM) to Auth0 so you can focus on innovation in building apps and propelling your mission forward.

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 enables state, local, and federal governments with secure Single Sign-On (SSO) and Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) that gives citizens quick access to the services they need.

Use case

G2G: Government to Government

Today’s government agencies frequently consolidate and centralize commonly used business functions like IT, payroll, or human resources.

Shared services create efficiency gains for governments, but require precise authentication behind the scenes. Auth0 enables users to authenticate or federate their identities in order to access shared services. Auth0 bridges the security and technology piece of this engagement, ensuring access is available only to the right people.

Use case

B2G2C: Business to Government to Citizen, via Gov Tech Partners

In the U.S., government services and functions can be useful but complicated when it comes to access and authentication.

When it comes to government records and cases, large and disparate volumes of people and groups routinely need access to the same information. Take, for example, a speeding ticket case: members of the judicial system and citizens each need access to that same ticket, but for different reasons. Auth0 enables GovTech companies with the security needed to authenticate software- as-a-service apps that speed this process.
