Single sign-on (SSO)

The Single sign-on (SSO) for Enterprises and individuals is considered one of the significant regulations of implanting the e-Government transactions issued within the Cabinet's resolution no. (40) and dated 27/2/1427H corresponding to 27/3/2006. Such regulations provide that each individual with a natural or virtual personality shall have a unified reference no. included within all information systems. The said unified reference no. will be able to fulfil all requirements of Concerned Agencies relating to e-Government Transactions and their applications. YESSER's Program will be in charge of relevantly coordinating with all concerned Government Agencies to specify natures and specifications of such references. The SSO is regarded as an electronic referential identity relating to individuals or enterprises with a natural or virtual personality. Such an identity shall be established through the National e-Government Portal "Saudi" to be verified and activated by verification offices. Such an SSO shall be included within all information systems where individuals or enterprises can use it to reliably carry out all e-Services offered by different Government Agencies.
