Country Uses ForgeRock Identity Platform to Build New Digital Passenger Declaration Cards to Help Safely Reopen International Borders Post-pandemic
San Francisco — November 15, 2021 — ForgeRock® (NYSE: FORG), a global digital identity leader, today announced that the ForgeRock Identity and Access Management (IAM) platform will be used to support the delivery of Australia's new application for Digital Passenger Declaration (DPD) cards to accelerate the safe reopening of its borders to vaccinated citizens, followed by international travelers post-pandemic.
The Digital Passenger Declaration cards will replace the physical incoming passenger card and the existing COVID-19 Australian Travel Declaration web form to make it easier and safer for travelers to provide personal information from trusted sources, like internationally recognized Covid vaccination certificates. People entering Australia will be able to complete the Digital Passenger Declaration process in minutes from their mobile device or computer.
"The world continues to become more connected and making it easier for people to manage their lives through digital solutions is now non-negotiable," said David Hope, SVP, Asia Pacific & Japan, ForgeRock. "We are proud to be working with the Australian Government to reunite families and friends and bring international travel back to Australia as quickly and safely as possible by leveraging the power of our enterprise-grade identity platform."
The DPD project work was awarded to Accenture through a competitive tender process run independently by the Department of Home Affairs. Accenture will work closely with the Department to deliver the initial operating capability of the DPD and will use the ForgeRock Identity Platform to enable the new digital cards.
