9. AUSkey functionality

John Dardo outlined to members some of the issues and irritants being experienced by large corporate AUSkey users and the work underway under the auspices of the new Commonwealth Digital Transformation Office and within the ATO.

  • This included the introduction of alternative authentication solutions such as myGov credentials, Voice Biometrics, Cloud Authentication and a new Relationship and Access Manager. Some of these solutions are already in production for individuals and for smaller businesses and they will be leveraged to support more services and more entities (eg. large corporates) over the next 18 months.
  • John also addressed some of the specific issues being experienced by large corporates in regards to Auskey authorisation. There was recognition that many of the authorisation limitations exist to protect the privacy and security of entities. He invited LBLG members to be involved in further solution design work as the broader authentication and authorisation agenda is progressed.
