Fairfax County, VA needed the ability to register residents to pay their taxes online and provide management for applications in the courts used by both residents and county employees. These needs needed to be met in a way that didn't sacrifice security for usability and recognized that some of the most important tasks for security required automation. The county also wanted to build a solution that avoided vendor lock-in by supporting standard protocols. Finally, the system had to work within the County's existing technology stack without requiring the hiring of specialized resources. In this case study we'll explore how the County implemented the MyFairfax system to achieve these goals from usability, DevSecOps and integration standpoints. We'll discuss several of the challenges we encountered along the way and how we over came them.
