The Electronic Identity Verification Bill (15 February 2012)
"The Electronic Identity Verification Bill is part of a wider project of enabling people to securely access government services online.
Any process where identity information is exchanged or shared raises inherent questions about privacy and security of personal information. When that process includes multiple government agencies, the stakes are high. It has been, and continues to be, important to get the fundamentals of this project right.
The Privacy Commissioner's Office has been involved at a highly detailed level throughout the development of the proposed system, and the Office was asked to provide independent critique and review.
