With the release of a new identity management platform, 18F is slowly culling together all the requisite pieces for an easy-to-deploy, cloud-based federal government web management platform.
- cloud.gov (“A platform by government developers, for government developers.”)
- login.gov (“Improving access to government services through a shared authentication platform”)
- Federalist (“Federalist is a unified interface for publishing static government websites.”)
These components, coupled with the U.S. Web Standards that will allow for a common look and feel front-end theme and templates, the Digital Analytics Program for metrics, its work on security and HTTPS, the General Service Administration (via 18F) is on its way to becoming a full-scale software-as-a-service platform that makes it easy for agencies to launch and maintain web services in-house.
