Digital identity

The DTA is delivering a digital identity program which will allow users of government services to get more done online at a time and place they choose.

Having to show your identity documents in person is the biggest barrier to government services being available end-to-end online.

The digital identity program will give Australian citizens and permanent residents a single and secure way to create a digital identity which can be used to access online government services.

The program has a number of key components:

These parts work together to deliver a secure digital identity program which protects the privacy of those who use it.

The first stage of the program will allow you to access services for individuals. In the future, your digital identity will enable you to access services on behalf of a business or even on behalf of someone who authorises you.
