As part of the 2021 review of the Security Standard for Add-on Marketplaces (SSAM), we are looking to better understand the experiences of both Digital Service Providers (DSPs) and add-ons when implementing and complying with API security standards introduced by DSPs since 2018.

We have created two surveys (one for DSPs and one for add-ons) which will:

  • Assist in understanding the experience for both DSPs and add-ons
  • Identify which requirements may need an uplift or more clarification
  • Inform changes to the SSAM post review

Responses to the surveys can be kept anonymous. Find more information about each survey below. 

Are you a DSP or an add-on?

Please take time to consider whether your software is classified as a DSP or add-on. You should only complete one survey. 

If you are a DSP that currently runs a marketplace, we would appreciate it if you are able to share this with the third party developers in your app stores and ecosystems. 

Digital Service Provider (DSP)

Definition: Any software product that needs to comply with the ATO DSP Operational Security Framework. Examples include tax, accounting, e-invoicing, payroll and superannuation software. 

If you fit into this definition, please complete the below survey.

Complete DSP Survey Complete DSP Survey

Both surveys are expected to take about 15 minutes to complete and there is the option to provide more detailed feedback at the end.
