NZ Government authentication approach
Following an earlier post on the Austrian ID system, several people got in touch asking me to blog about the New Zealand Government’s approach to authentication.
That’s not a very appealing thought, that’s my day job. Besides, this is supposed to be a personal blog.
So I thought the best thing was to point interested people to three links:
First, the website of the Authentication Programme. It provides a good overview about what we’re doing.
Secondly, what the media has been saying about the Programme. We maintain the list of links via Del.icio.us (which, by the way, I think is a really neat way to manage it). You can go via a link at the website above or directly from here.
Finally, there is a Power Point presentation that was given at the Privacy Commissioner’s office some time back by one of the senior managers. This presentation contains more information about the Identity Verification Service which is the identity component of the authentication service.
