Our mission with RPX is to make it easier for visitors to register and sign in to all websites. That’s why we are excited to announce the release today of a new version of RPX for Government websites looking to increase registrations and engagement by registering new users from identity providers like Google, Yahoo, PayPal and Verisign. As part of the US Government’s Open Identity Initiative and its commitment to make Government more open and transparent, Government websites increasingly are seeking ways to become more interactive. RPX for Government helps facilitate citizen engagement by making it easy for visitors to register and login to Government websites with an existing identity from a secure provider.

RPX for Government is compliant with the security and privacy standards set forth by the General Services Administration (GSA), Identity, Credential & Access Management (ICAM), and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Additionally, RPX for Government offers flexible data filtering and personal information screening to protect end user privacy, and allows Government websites to pre-select which identity providers can be used for authentication.
