TDIF

The Trusted Digital Identity Framework (TDIF) is an accreditation framework for digital ID services.

It sets out the requirements that applicants need to meet to achieve accreditation. 

The accreditation framework and process ensures all identity providers meet strict rules and standards for usability, accessibility, privacy protection, security, risk management, fraud control and more.

Building on the existing TDIF, a Digital ID Bill and draft Accreditation Rules have been developed to detail the requirements for Digital ID service providers to become accredited and maintain their accreditation if Digital ID legislation passes parliament. See Legislation | Digital Identity for a summary of the Digital ID Bill and a copy of the draft Accreditation Rules.

We provide guidance material to support organisations to meet TDIF requirements, which can be found here

TDIF accreditation program

Government providers that offer digital ID services can apply to be accredited under the TDIF.

The Australian Government is also running a pilot accreditation program, under which private sector businesses can apply to be accredited under the TDIF to test the readiness for its use to be expanded beyond government.

Accreditation demonstrates that their digital ID services are trusted, safe and secure and built to the standards set by the Australian Government.
