ID.me Becomes FedRAMP Ready to Provide Technology to Store Government Data
ID.me, a provider of digital identity solutions, is receiving a FedRAMP Ready certification for its identity verification platform.
According to the vendor, this certification extends ID.me’s leadership as a next-generation identity platform for the public and private sectors.
The ID.me platform already meets or exceeds the highest industry standards: NIST 800-63 -2(-3), EO 13681, HSPD-12, and FIDO alliance standards.
The Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program, or FedRAMP, is a security assessment and authorization process the federal government uses to ensure cloud technologies meet the strictest of security standards.
Vendors like ID.me must obtain FedRAMP Ready status as a first step to be considered by federal agencies looking to procure new cloud technology that will store government data.
ID.me is the first FICAM accredited identity proofing solution to become FedRAMP Ready. This comes on the heels of ID.me’s FIDO U2F certification in September. As a FedRAMP Ready vendor, ID.me is now available on the FedRAMP marketplace for government agencies and contractors.
ID.me’s digital identity platform allows convenient, trusted interactions between individuals and organizations.
ID.me currently supports four federal agencies for online identity proofing, attribute validation and authentication. The ID.me platform meets NIST 800-63-2 guidelines, and is forward-aligned to meet NIST 800-63-3. It uses a combination of remote verification of physical IDs, mobile network operator data, fraud algorithms, and FIDO U2F multi-factor authentication capabilities to securely verify a user’s identity for high-risk transactions.
