National e-Authentication Framework Website Authentication Guidelines - January 2009
In December 2008 the Australian Government Information Management Office (AGIMO) within the Department of Finance and Deregulation released a set of documents outlining the National eAuthentication Framework (NeAF).
The NeAF sets out a whole-of-government approach to managing identity-related risks in online transactions between individuals and government, and between businesses and government. It combines the earlier Australian Government e-Authentication Framework for Business and Australian Government e-Authentication Framework for Individuals into a single framework.
NeAF Best Practice Guideline 2 sets out methods for authenticating government websites - an essential part of developing trust in online transactions. BPG2 includes three technical appendices prepared by Galexia:
- Website authentication mechanisms;
- Website authentication - technology assessment schedule; and
- Current Attacks on Websites.
