AUCyberscape is Australia’s first national cyber security digital ecosystem – showcasing Australian cyber security capability and opportunities globally and providing a vehicle for customers to connect with Australian cyber security companies. In partnership with AustCyber, State and Territory Governments and the Insurance Australia Group (IAG), AUCyberscape aims to strengthen Australia’s cyber security capability and drive cyber security awareness and education.

Security imperative

Establishing an online platform to showcase Australia’s cyber security capabilities demanded two fundamental criteria to be met. First, engagement of relevant domestic capability to support the platform and second, best of breed security technology to register and authenticate users, i.e., the cyber security companies contributing their information to the ecosystem. A repository of expert, Australian cyber security capability posed an obvious target for bad actors wanting to undermine the integrity of the ecosystem and potentially extract underlying data.

AUCyberscape needed a foolproof registration and authentication system – one not prone to traditional threat vectors such as password compromise and phishing.

Melbourne based business Forticode, with its innovative authentication product Cipherise, hosted on AUCloud was engaged to deliver the solution required.

Itself a leader in cyber security technology, Forticode’s authentication Software-as-a-Service solution Cipherise is the product of significant Australian grown research and development. Providing a world first Secure Digital Engagement Platform-as-a-Service (Paas), Cipherise combines different security and privacy approaches and a decentralised, bi-directional cryptographic platform to identify, authenticate and authorize all user activities.
