DTA consulting on third component of TDIF

The Digital Transformation Agency has released the third component of the planned Trusted Digital Identity Framework for public consultation.

The third component of the framework builds on the second version released in September. It includes three new documents including an architectural overview of the functions of the framework.

In addition, the updates include administrative and technical requirements for government agencies and organisations wishing to be accredited as attribute providers, as well as ongoing accreditation obligations for participants in the framework such as annual audits.

The third release also updates nine existing documents that form the framework based on feedback from earlier releases, including updates to privacy, risk management and protective security requirements.

For example, protective security requirements have been updated to ensure they align with the most current edition of the Australian Government Protective Security Policy Framework and Information Security Manual, published last year.

User experience requirements have also been updated to align with the federal Digital Service Standard and Web Content Accessibility Guidelines.

The consultation period for the third component of the framework will run until 15 February.
