Galexia to help develop the Singapore National Authentication Framework - August 2006
The Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (iDA) is spearheading a National Authentication Framework (NAF) programme under their 10 year Intelligent Nation Masterplan. NAF aims to implement a nationwide infrastructure for strong authentication through the development of appropriate business, technical and operational frameworks. A NAF steering committee and four NAF sub-committees (Finance, Telecommunications, Government and Technical) comprising of industry captains and government agencies will provide sponsorship and inputs to the developmental works under NAF.
Galexia has been chosen as a member of a consortium (also including KPMG, Baker & McKenzie, Wong & Leow and Biometix) to drive and guide the establishment of the NAF. As such Galexia’s work entails the proposal of a model to deploy the NAF, and to develop 4 supporting components that are needed to realise the deployments:
- Governance Framework and Regulatory Requirements;
- Accreditation Audit Criteria for Authentication Operators ("AOs");
- Reference Business Agreement; and
- Reference Technical Standards and Protocols.
