Security Token Service

VANguard’s Security Token Service (STS) generates an electronic security token to ensure secure and seamless transactions take place between agencies or business systems without the user being required to undertake any logon/identification.

STS provides the technology for an agency to authenticate users without having to store any digital identity information. 


  • A business user (or agency) wants to conduct a secure transaction with an agency. The user requests a security token from VANguard’s STS.
  • The STS validates the user request and issues a security token containing the user’s identity.
  • The requesting agency then provides the security token to the receiving agency to verify the identity of the user.
