Updated January 27, 2020 06:19:54Australia has said it is “proud” to have developed an HTML5 standard for the Australian government’s data.
Key points:Australia’s National Information Council said it developed an “HTML 5 Data Protocol” in 2020 that would allow data to be stored using a single file nameThe government says data is now stored in HTML5 and is “highly interoperable”With the release of the Australian Government’s 2018 Data Data Plan (DTDP), data was also added to the DTDP.
“The DTDP was created to help Australia’s Government identify and support the needs of the data sector,” the Australian Information Council (AIC) said in a statement.
“Its purpose is to help build and improve the information technology infrastructure for the Government of Australia.”
The Australian Information Security Group (AISG) said it “fully supports” the DTDC and is working on the DTAPI.
The DTAPI is expected to be released in late 2020.
In 2020, data was stored in a single “file name” and it was possible for users to download the file from the Government’s website.
“It was a time when Australia’s data infrastructure was not yet fully developed,” the AISG said.
“As the DTDSG continues to develop data interoperability, we are pleased to have seen the Australian National Information Security Agency (ANISA) develop a specification for data-based data sharing.”
