Janet Hughes, GDS identity assurance program director, wrote in a blog post published Thursday that the GOV.UK Verify platform has passed the “Digital by Default Service Standard” assessment to address security, safety and usability requirements.

She added the transition to a live service is a gradual process and the assessment works to facilitate large-scale deployment across multiple departments.

The organization will continue to develop new updates for the service and post more about the developments over the next year, Hughes wrote.
