Evidence Of Identity Requirements

If you are applying for an Individual, Non-Individual or ABN-DSC Authorised Officer Digital Certificate you need to complete an identification check. The identification check can be done at selected Australia Post outlets and is just like doing a 100 point check when opening a bank account.

There are two types of identification checks: personal and organisation checks. The type of check required depends on the type of certificate you are purchasing.

The VeriSign website provides full details on:
