A.2.63 The government gateway is a specific example of an access system. It is a hub linking portals and external back-office systems to government back-office systems. Amongst other things, the gateway provides common security services, including identity registration and authentication of clients. Once a client has been authenticated, the government gateway forwards information between the client and appropriate government back-office systems. It coordinates transactions on government back-office systems on behalf of the client to support `joined-up' government services. The government gateway also provides a secure messaging facility to al ow government departments to communicate with the client. The linkage between a portal and a government back-office system may be asynchronous, or synchronous.
