Judicial Council of Georgia

Judicial Services Gateway Portal SSO

The Judicial Council is the policy-making body for Georgia’s judiciary, chaired by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Georgia. The Council’s 27 members represent every class of court and the State Bar of Georgia. Its Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC) provides services to courts and their judicial partners, including court clerks, other State level organizations and the public. The AOC also provides staff support and resources to the Judicial Council’s committees, and software solutions that support a large number of the state’s nearly 1,100 courts, spread across 159 counties.

The number and diversity of the courts, populations, and funding levels in Georgia means that a highly disparate set of tech solutions are implemented by various courts. Adding to the complexity of the environment across the state, courts purchase their own solutions independently. A number of those technology solutions support electronic filing of court documents (“e-filing”) and electronic access to public court documents (“e-access”) - but they’re distributed across the state with no clear way for attorneys and citizens to know where to go for court services. The Council’s Tech Committee wanted to improve electronic access to Georgia’s courts by creating a Judicial Services Portal that would link these disparate systems together, while preserving the independence of Georgia’s courts in selecting software that best suits their needs and budgets. Key to the solution would be determining a way to allow attorneys, court staff and citizens to securely log into the systems without having to remember a lot of different user names and passwords, or re-enter their credentials every time they need to access a different system.
With Atricore’s IAM products and expertise, the AOC implemented an SSO solution that allows Georgia’s 40,000+ active attorneys to log into the portal and seamlessly access Georgia’s largest e-filing provider, serving two thirds of Georgia’s State and Superior Courts. Plans to extend the solution even further are actively underway.
  • Flexible, secure and seamless authentication across a number of trusted authentication sources, shared across diverse partner systems without compromising security.
  • Improved productivity as users move seamlessly between authorized systems without having to remember or enter multiple passwords.
  • Application providers retain control of which authentication systems they establish trust relationships with, and the level of access each user is provided in their system.
  • Citizens can create their own account and access the court services they need, providing additional information to system owners just once if it is required by those systems for billing or security reasons.
