GOV.UK Verify: Identity Assurance Principles

These Principles support an Identity Assurance Service that allows individuals to control when to reveal their own identifying information.



These Principles have been produced by the Privacy and Consumer Advisory Group, but are not devoted solely to privacy, data protection or consumer issues. These Principles apply to the operation of a user-centric, Identity Assurance Service that places the individual Service User (i.e. the person who has registered the identity, or someone authorised to act on their behalf) in control of when and how they assert their identity.
