SOURCES SOUGHT NOTICE
Security Operations Center (SOC) & Application Monitoring Services for LOGIN.GOV
The General Services Administration is issuing this Sources Sought Notice on behalf of 18F to identify potential vendors who can provide Managed Security and IT Service in of support 18F's login.gov product. Login.gov provides simple and secure access to public-facing federal consumer services and information, while protecting consumer privacy.
Login.gov is an open source, single sign on service for government that provides the public with a better customer experience and improved security, while offering the government cross-agency integration at lower costs.
Login.gov encrypts the personal information of each user separately, using a unique value generated from each user's password.
Login.gov implements the latest National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) standards for secure authentication and verification. Our plans for ongoing security include regular penetration testing and external security reviews.
Individual accounts get two layers of security. Login.gov requires two-factor authentication as well as strong passwords that meet NIST requirements. Login.gov evaluates and implements new authentication methods as they become widely available to make sure that login.gov remains accessible and secure.
Encrypting personal data separately means that login.gov cannot share any information with other government entities without users' permission. Database administrators cannot decrypt a user's personal information without the user's password.
The 18F identity playbook, with additional information about the login.gov methodology, can be found at: https://pages.18f.gov/identity-playbook/ .
An overview of login.gov's security approach can be found at: https://pages.18f.gov/identity-pii-management/ .
