Secure access to the eGovernment portal

secunet, together with its partner mgm technology partners, has developed the authentication service authega which is entirely compliant with data protection regulations. authega allows secure online-access to every web-based administrative application and eGovernment-portal. Public authorities and companies have the possibility to identify any applicant securely with the help of authega. This is an essential requirement for handling personal information and accepting applications online. Citizens and companies can rely on their data being securely transmitted and treated confidentially.

The IT representative of the Bavarian State Government and the Bavarian State Parliament decided to implement authega in cooperation with the Bavarian State Office for taxation, Computing Center North and the State Office of Finance, their governmental partners in the project. authega is used for securing the online-access of 350,000 civil servants and employees of the Bavarian public authorities to the new employee portal. As an established IT security platform, authega will manage secure access to confidential human resource matters such as travel expenses, salary statements or health insurance forms. In a second step, authega forms the access to Bavarian eGovernment portals for other user groups.
