Identity Management User Authentication Standards

EA - 183.20.10


These standards designate the state's Enterprise Active Directory (EAD), SecureAccess Washington® (SAW), and Transact WashingtonTM (TAW) as common user authentication solutions for state government to leverage available statewide investments, provide an integrated end-user experience, and enable single/reduced sign-on.

Federated Identity Management (FID) is designated as an architectural strategy via extended SAW functionality, policies, practices, and technologies to enable single/reduced sign-on across organizational boundaries.
