Effective use of sensitive research data
This project explores the options for access to sensitive data sets; what authentication technologies (e.g. multi-factor authentication) are needed to access sensitive data and secure compute environments. This project seeks to position choices around authentication technologies within the Five Safes framework for research use of sensitive data, proposed in 2003 by Felix Ritchie of the UK Office of National Statistics:
- Safe Projects: is the proposed research use of the data appropriate?
- Safe People: can the users be trusted to use the data in an appropriate manner?
- Safe Settings: does the access facility limit unauthorised use?
- Safe Data: is there a disclosure risk in the data itself?
- Safe Outputs: are the research results non-disclosive i.e. they do not compromise privacy or breach confidentiality?

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.
