Australian Government Releases Framework for Digital Identity
The Australian government has released the first component of the Trusted Digital Identity Framework for organizations seeking to provide identity services.
The framework, whose development has been overseen by the Digital Transformation Agency, is intended to set standards for organizations providing digital ID for access to online services. The framework will help underpin the development of a federated digital identity system and provide the standards for the government's Govpass ID platform.
The intention is allow individuals to only have to prove their identity once and then be able to use a digital ID across multiple government services.
