Kominfo Ministry Introduces Digital ID under Revised ITE Law

24 November 2023 12:42 WIB

TEMPO.CO, JakartaThe Ministry of Communication and Information or Kominfo introduced a new policy on digital identity, which is part of the second amendment of Law No. 11 of 2008 on Electronic Information and Transactions (ITE). The new policy will later require all citizens to have a digital ID.

The ministry’s director general of informatics applications (APTIKA), Semuel Abrijani Pangerapan, explained that the policy aims to ensure public data security in the digital space.

“We have created a so-called Digital ID, that will circulate in cyberspace in accordance with the Personal Data Protection Law,” Semuel said at a press conference on the bill at the Kominfo Ministry’s Building in Central Jakarta on Thursday, Nov. 23.

According to him, the Digital ID will be in the form of a unique number or algorithm that will be used for transactions in the digital space or to gain access to government services.

The Digital ID will also be used to validate the data owner. Semuel hoped that the Digital ID would prevent people from carelessly using other personal identities.

“In transactions, only we and the parties with whom we transact will know our data,” Semuel added.

The Digital ID, he went on, is already being used in everyday activities, such as the use of digital signatures. The information stored in the Digital ID will later be matched with the data registered with the government through civil registration, making it useful in the data verification process.

Semuel stressed that only Electronic Certification Providers (PSrE) are authorized to issue Digital IDs, and the government has selected the PSrE and determined the technology that must be used in issuing Digital IDs.
