Hello UKCrypto,

Cabinet Office Press Release:

delivery programme.

Opening Paragraphs.

As part of the Government's commitment to delivering world-class digital 
products, today the Minister for Cabinet Office Francis Maude announced 
the Identity Assurance programme would be receiving an extra £10 million 
in funding.

The Identity Assurance programme deals with the way a service provider 
can be assured that the customer or user is who they say they are as 
they access Government services.

Francis Maude made the announcement at the 'Ensuring Trusted Services 
with the new Identity Assurance Programme' event. Speaking to heads of 
leading UK technology firms he updated them on the Identity Assurance 
programme and issued a call to action for companies to work with the UK 
Government to develop solutions for the project.
