EFA is deeply concerned by the planned rollout of a so-called Access Card smart card linked to a centralised database containing identification, and other, information about almost every adult Australian and Australian residents. The proposal is flawed because it produces a "honeypot effect" - a highly attractive and richly rewarding single target for criminals engaged in identity theft.

See EFA's submission to the DHS Access Card Consumer and Privacy Taskforce and EFA's Access Card page.
