This means access to the USI Registry system is also changing
The way you login to government online services is about to change.
This decision has direct impact on access to the USI Registry System. Prior to the deadline of March 2020, developers and RTOs have to update their systems to use alternate authentication credentials and different service end points in order to maintain access to the USI Registry System.
Why is it being replaced?
AUSkey has not kept pace with changes in technology and does not meet the future needs of most businesses.
What is the new solution?
The Australian Government is developing new digital services that will transform the way everyone interacts with government.
Standard and Admin AUSkeys will be replaced by both:
- myGovID – an authentication service that allows you to prove who you are online.
- Relationship Authorisation Manager (RAM) – an authorisation service that allows you to link your myGovID to an ABN and manage who can act on behalf of your business online.
Device AUSkeys will be replaced by the new Machine-to-Machine (M2M) authentication solution.
- The replacement M2M authentication solution requires an individual person (authorised for the particular entity’s ABN) to first acquire a myGovID digital identity in order to obtain a new credential.
What do I need to do?
Regularly visit this page to keep updated on how the changes will affect your access to the USI portal.
