Digital identity explained
A simple guide to myGovID and how the digital identity program will help you access more government services online.
Understanding authorisation for digital identity
Australia’s digital identity program will give you a secure way to prove your identity online, letting you access more government services when and where you want. Sometimes it might be necessary to authorise someone else to act on your behalf.
How we’re developing the policy behind digital identity
Building a safe, secure and easy-to-use digital identity system for Australia is complex. Products, services and government agencies need to work together to deliver everything from the technical platform to the rules and standards that support the system. Director of digital identity policy, Shannon Peterson takes us behind the scenes of these rules and standards, also known as the Trusted Digital Identity Framework (TDIF).
Testing digital identity
The Australian Government has started testing myGovID with real people and services.
Collaborating with South Australia on digital identity
The Minister for Human Services and Digital Transformation, Michael Keenan and the Premier of South Australia, Steven Marshall have committed to collaborate on Australia’s digital identity program.
