D2A uses the ATO’s myGovID machine credentials for authentication. Administrators need to complete three steps to set up and administer their own myGovID and create a machine credential. The links given below are to ATO published materials.
|1. Obtain a digital identity||2. Link ABN and authorise others||3. Create a machine credential|
|D2A administrators (Principal Authority and
Machine Credential Administrator) must set up their digital identity and obtain a myGovID.
|Entities need to ensure that their business ABN is linked and administrators are authorised in RAM.||For D2A, a Machine Credential Administrator will need to create a
machine credential (this is not required for Extranet).
|MyGovID||Relationship Authorisation Manager|
