NSW ID Biometrics Principles Unveiled By HTI.

NSW ID Biometrics Principles – A report by Professor Edward Santow, Sophie Farthing and Lauren Perry of the Human Technology Institute (HTI) at University of Technology Sydney (UTS) suggests principles for digital ID and facial biometrics in NSW.

The report emerges from NSW’s digital ID strategy, which incorporates selfie verification and liveness detection via the Service NSW app, which is designed to incorporate privacy and cybersecurity protection.

HTI’s report cites issues such as the potential for algorithmic bias and the risk of large aggregations of personal data being hacked, the report offers a governance framework containing ten principles to inform legislation and policy for digital ID.

The relevance of the report to security operations and implementation of authentication in security applications is the proposition that the NSW digital ID should be established in law, should promote privacy and security of all users, should incorporate independent monitoring and oversight, and the NSW digital ID should be developed with a view to integrating with federal and other Australian digital identity systems.

Professor Santow said that biometric facial verification and facial analysis for liveness “can pose risks for human rights, such as privacy and non-discrimination, and these risks need to be well managed through good system design, strong legal protections and effective training.”

To ameliorate these potential issues, the report includes a digital training strategy for Service NSW, to ensure that staff at all levels “understand the risks, responsibilities and appropriate responses to issues likely to arise in respect of the NSW Digital ID system.”

NSW ID Biometrics Principles:

  • NSW Digital ID should be established in law
  • NSW Digital ID should protect and promote the privacy and data security of all users
  • There should be independent monitoring and oversight of NSW Digital ID
  • Legislation and policy for NSW Digital ID should ensure citizen autonomy through effective mechanisms for choice and consent
  • NSW Digital ID should perform to a high standard of accuracy and be fit for purpose. Service NSW, as the responsible agency, should report publicly and periodically on relevant independent benchmarking and technical standards compliance
  • NSW Digital ID should be useable for all, with the benefits enjoyed by everyone equally
  • Service NSW, as the responsible agency for NSW Digital ID, should put in place robust internal monitoring and oversight mechanisms
  • NSW Digital ID users should be able to access timely correction and redress
  • There should be clear communication to the public about NSW Digital ID prior to its rollout
  • NSW Digital ID should be developed with a view to integrating with federal and other Australian digital identity systems.
