The E-Authentication Program is central to establishing e-government programs. The e-authentication program consists of programs that ensure that a users personal and private information is safeguarded and that a user is authorized for access to certain information.
"The administration is scrapping plans for its online E-Authentication gateway, which had been touted as a cornerstone of e-government.
“E-Authentication is moving in a new technical direction that is not centered around the development of a gateway," said Karen Evans, the Office of Management and Budget’s administrator for e-government and IT."
