Identity and access management

The government-wide adoption of common policy, standards, guidelines and processes for identity and access management (IDAM), including staff authentication, passwords and credentials, enables the Victorian Government to reduce the risk of inappropriate information release or access.

Policy

    • IDAM POL 01 Identity and Access Management: this policy has been withdrawn by Enterprise Solutions. Please refer to the Victorian Protective Data Security Standards for the relevant information.
    • IDAM POL 02 Citizen Identity Management: Where identity credentials are required for external users of Victorian Government online services, agencies will provide use of the Victorian Government federated identity infrastructure as an option for sign-on. The IDAM Policy 02 on Citizen Identity is being reviewed in the context of the Service Victoria. The policy is not expected to change, but the timing of commencement will align with the delivery of that program.
