9 © State Services Commission, 2006 9 The Concept Of Authentication When people or businesses deal with government, they need to prove who they are to access some government services, for example when registering a company or looking at a persons medical records. Authentication is the process of confirming the identity of the person, to the required level of confidence. With the Internet becoming a mainstream channel for interacting, transacting and participating, online authentication has become a prerequisite for effective and efficient government worldwide.

10 © State Services Commission, 2006 10 Approach To Online Authentication Separate who a person is (identity) from what they do (activity). Excludes authorisation and role management. Name = Joe Bloggs Date of birth = 01/01/1970 Place of birth = Wellington Sex = male Mothers name = Bloggmom Username = joe, Password = joeblo22 Identity Verification Service (IVS) Government Logon Service (GLS)

11 © State Services Commission, 2006 11 IVS Overview An online, real time service that links an identity verification credential (IVC) with a strong GLS logon to verify the person is who they say they are Supports and enables a customer channel option (online) Identity is authoritatively verified to a passport-standard evidence of identity (EOI) IVS Design leverages: –Time, effort and expense of a passport application (and, subject to feasibility, citizenship and permanent residency) for both people and govt –Expertise, systems and resources of DIA, Identity Services –Authentication infrastructure –The Evidence of Identity Standard, as changes to the current EOI in Identity Services automatically flow through to the IVC

12 © State Services Commission, 2006 12 IVS Privacy Protection Implements core concept of separating identity from activity Based on Cabinet-approved principles, in particular opt-in Person initiates identity verification request and controls data release Uniqueness per agency or sector, no national identifier Minimum identity data stored No view of entitlement to agency services or transactions No additional identity data collected/stored People can self-audit usage online This is an additional channel, current offline methods will continue

13 © State Services Commission, 2006 13 IVS Benefits Provides people with additional means to verify their identity to agencies authoritatively at passport strength People who have been through one of the identified high quality Evidence of Identity process with government dont have to repeat it to receive an IVC Better ability for agencies and people to leverage the convenience of the online channel –e.g. support rural communities, overseas New Zealanders Ability to leverage the governments identity experts skills and knowledge to reduce identity fraud Tangible cost savings for agencies and government

14 © State Services Commission, 2006 14 Long Term Benefits Increased confidence and trust in using the online channel. People have the choice of using a common logon when transacting online with government. Cost-effective means for managing continuously evolving authentication technology changes and security threats. Better ability to tackle identity fraud. Benefits of governments collective size in delivering scale economies, expertise and adoption of best practices available to all agencies, irrespective of size –Includes integrity of evidence of identity process –Respect for privacy principles

15 © State Services Commission, 2006 15 Other potential services The authentication infrastructure is a secure, reliable and networked platform that can be leveraged economically by additional authentication services in the future.

16 © State Services Commission, 2006 16 Types Of Services Identification of services and their evaluation will start in July 2006. We expect two categories of all-of-government services: –Value Added Services Authentication of remote access, digital signatures, online payments, authentication of access parameters –Distributed Sources Of Authoritative Data Company identity from Ministry of Economic Development Partnership identity from Inland Revenue Department
