A comprehensive social security system
for New Caledonia
CAFAT, New Caledonia’s social welfare organisation, offers the territory’s employees management of systems related to workplace accidents and occupational illnesses, family, unemployment, disability and death, old age and widowhood. CAFAT also manages the unified maternity and illness insurance scheme for all of New Caledonia’s workers and pensioners (employees, civil servants and self-employed workers).
In 2013, CAFAT provided healthcare professionals and business leaders with a set of online services accessible via an internet portal. However, these external users and business applications were not centrally managed, and CAFAT planned to offer more e-services.
It is in this context that CAFAT launched an initiative to centrally manage the identity of these staff (approximately 40,000 users) and to strengthen the security of their access to the portal depending on the sensitivity of the data.
