Exploring higher levels of assurance (including multi-factor authentication)
The project set out to understand the requirements for access to sensitive data and how those requirements might be addressed in a federated environment.
The specific questions the project explored were:
- What specific requirements exist when authenticating researchers for access to sensitive data?
- How has multi-factor authentication (MFA) been deployed in international contexts? How widely is it used? What is working well? What are the issues?
- What policies and processes must accompany technology implementations?
- How well positioned are organisations in Australia’s research and education environment (the AAF, institutions and service providers) with respect to policy, process and technology to enable access to sensitive data?

What does this project enable?
Projects in this area will contribute to determining what vision, governance structure and implementation program are necessary to create an Australian research data commons.
