Digital service providers (DSPs) taking part in a recent private beta release of the Machine to Machine (M2M) credential for SBR2 have successfully completed the trial, with the credential to remain available in EVTE.
Participants said using the new solution was simple: “It really was just a plug and play from the old method.”
Another said: “With no more than one hour’s work, I was able to implement M2M within my payroll system.”
As part of the move from AUSkey to new government digital services – myGovID and Relationship Authorisation Manager (RAM) – the new M2M authentication solution will enable businesses and tax professionals to interact with ATO digital services through their software.
Together, these services will replace AUSkey when it is decommissioned in March 2020, and offer an easy, secure and more flexible authentication and authorisation solution.
The M2M private beta is being reviewed to identify any improvements required for the next release. New M2M documents will be available for DSPs opting to use the EVTE, including new endpoints, a new certificate and keystore, and an ATO M2M conformance suite guide. A trial release of M2M for SBR1 is in development, you will be advised when this is available for testing.
