Galexia to help complete the Gatekeeper Public Key Infrastructure Framework for AGIMO - April 2006
Following a competitive tender, the Department of Finance and Administration has selected Galexia to undertake consultancy services relating to the Gatekeeper PKI Framework.
The Gatekeeper Strategy governs the use of PKI in government for the authentication of external clients. The strategy provides a whole-of-government framework that delivers integrity, interoperability, authenticity and trust for agencies and their clients. The strategy is underpinned by a standards-based, technology-neutral accreditation program for issuers of digital certificates.
The Framework is aimed at making the application of PKI less complex and more affordable for businesses and government agencies. It better aligns the Gatekeeper Strategy with the way governments and businesses conduct their day-to-day activities. The Framework introduces new categories of digital certificates for Organisations and Individuals.
More information about the Gatekeeper PKI Framework can be found at http://www.agimo.gov.au/infrastructure/gatekeeper.
Galexia will be working with the Australian Government Information Management Office (AGIMO), who works across government to maintain Australia's position as a leader in the productive application of information and communications technologies (ICT) to government administration, information and services.
Galexia will also work with both the Department of Finance and members of other specific working groups established by the Gatekeeper Policy Committee to deliver an operational Gatekeeper PKI Framework by 30 June 2006.
