New commitment
OGP principles with which the commitment is associated:
Innovation and technology for openness
By 2022, all of the public authorities, at national and local level alike, will be using the components and services of the technical infrastructure FranceConnect Plateforme to deliver secure, simple, personalised, completely digital services which guarantee procedural traceability and respect of fundamental freedoms. This platform is enabling the gradual, ongoing construction of a modular, reusable public information system designed to facilitate innovation and to be open to all State partners, whether public or private. It supports agile, low-cost developments, focusing efforts on the search for "business value".
Thanks to its core range of basic services:
Citizens, businesses and public officials can obtain e-identification means tailored to their needs via FranceConnect identité;
Data and services can be published with a view, on the one hand, to facilitating communication between public authorities and personalising relations with users (thereby avoiding repeat requests for supporting documents for example, applying the "dites-le nous une fois" (tell us just the once) rule), and, on the other, to enabling different developers, whether they are working within a State institution or externally, to create value-added services;
Trust can be enhanced by guaranteeing protection of data and privacy.
The FranceConnect Plateforme is organised into two concentric circles:
The 1st circle ("core"), comprising a basic services provision for guaranteeing the smooth running of the platform and swift delivery of the services for users and businesses (e.g. FranceConnect identité, data exchange service, data protection service);
The 2nd circle, comprising common assets: services and components characterised by their high degree of re-use by the other departments, and therefore by a high risk of disruption should the service be upgraded or become unavailable. These services include, for example,
the main APIs on the reference data (businesses, households, taxation, geodata, etc.) or the "public data service";
The FranceConnect Plateforme development pathway takes an iterative approach with the user (starting with a "minimum viable product"), enabling an incremental and collective development of services.
In this platform model, the ministries, operators and local authorities become stewards of the development of the modular public IS. They are responsible for presenting data and services for the attention of officials or the public. These services are either new modular-native services ("API First" approach) or services from legacy systems that have gone through API- fication processes.
FranceConnect Plateforme is then expected to be opened to external developers and enhanced as and when they add new contributions. It will also be possible to develop new services from available public services and data. Such services could, for example, allow user authentication via FranceConnect identité.
The road map in detail

Develop the core services of FranceConnect Plateforme, to guarantee the smooth running of the platform and swift delivery of the services for users and businesses:
The platform infrastructure;
The identification services based on FranceConnect identité
(Household, Official or Business);
The data exchange functions: internal reference frameworks,
API SEO, drawing up of contracts and authorisations,
presentation and transmission of data;
The functions bearing on protection (integrity, confidentiality,
access control, traceability and history of exchanges) and
An access interface for users and local authorities publishing
information in open-data format (number, type, geographic distribution) 2 years for the first complete operational environment (followed by continuous improvement)
Develop the priority services of common interest (minimum functional base, 2nd circle) to fast-track the development and provision of new online services, underpinning the "core" features of FranceConnect Plateforme.
In particular: APIs opening up the reference data, pooled components enabling the integration and ongoing roll-out of developments according to a DevOps mindset; universal payment "brick"; Vitam-as-a-Service (Vitam is a software program for developing a digital archiving base that can be re-used by government departments), etc. 5 years
