myGovID CPS and CP

Public Key Infrastructure

The Australian Taxation Office (ATO), which manage myGovID, Public Key Infrastructure (PKI), CA, and Registration Authority (RA) services are provided under a common framework.

The framework sets out the policy and operational matters related to the PKIC services, including the practices that the ATO employs in issuing, revoking, and managing certificates.

The ATO PKI is accredited by the DTA Gatekeeper PKI Framework as being a High Assurance Certification Authority. Through Gatekeeper, the Commonwealth provides the PKI framework to facilitate secure Government online service delivery and e-procurement.

The Gatekeeper PKI Framework states that Australian Government agencies must only use digital keys and certificates issued by a Gatekeeper-accredited organisation for PKI authentication.
