1Malaysia mail REVIEW ! Explaination from PM... it;s volunteering..

PM: Signing up for 1MY E-mail is voluntary


IPOH: Malaysians need not sign up for the 1Malaysia E-mail account if they did not want to, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said here Wednesday.
Reiterating that the project was a private sector initiative and does not involve public funds, Najib said signing up for the 1MY E-mail would be on a voluntary basis.
He explained that the initiative had been evaluated by the Performance Management and Delivery Unit (Pemandu) and announced as one of seven new projects under the Economic Transformation Programme (ETP).
He told this to reporters after launching the Saham Amanah Malaysia Week 2011.
Earlier Wednesday, Pemandu had said that 1MY E-mail account would be completely voluntary.
It added that the sign-up targets for the 1MY E-mail were being set as KPIs to enable a focused implementation of the project.
"The e-mail is for each Malaysian above 18 years of age to have access to a single secured communication channel to e-Government services, "with a single sign-on user ID".
"Currently, most Malaysians use non-secured public e-mail e.g. yahoo, hotmail, gmail (hosted overseas) in their communications with the government.
"This user ID comes with a locally hosted mail box. If you sign up for the e-mail, you can use it for various government services, which are set to go digital.
"This is an alternative secured mode of communication between the government and the people," Pemandu added.
It also reiterated that no public funds were being used for project.
"This is a private sector-led initiative by Tricubes. The investment does not come from the government," it said.
Statement by Khairun Zainal Mokhtar,
Chief Executive, Tricubes Berhad
Following the fifth Economic Transformation Programme progress update on 19 April 2011, questions have been raised by the Malaysian public and media regarding the 1Malaysia E-mail project spearheaded by Tricubes Berhad. As the Malaysian public and media may not have fully comprehended the nature of the project, its funding and our ability to implement, I have taken the liberty to address the queries in a more holistic manner. My responses are as follows:
1. What is the 1Malaysia E-mail project?
The concept of a “Malaysian” e-mail project was mooted by industry members during the NKEA Communications Content and Infrastructure (CCI) Lab organised by PEMANDU under the Economic Transformation Programme (ETP) in June 2010. This “Malaysian Email” would be the digital channel of communication between the Government and the users.
“Malaysian E-mail” means the service is operated and hosted by a Malaysian company.
The aspiration is for each Malaysian aged 18 and above to have access to a secured communication channel to government e-services on Internet-enabled devices with a single sign-on user ID.
2. What is the domain email address?
The registered and approved domain email address will be yourname@myemail.my
3. What are the benefits of having a MyEmail account?
Users will initially be able to use this account to receive government notices such as income tax assessment, driving license renewal and quit rent reminders as well as Employee Provident Fund statements and notices of summons. This is not an exhaustive list of services and more can potentially be offered to users in the future.
4. How do I know that my MyEmail account will be secure?
The myemail.my account has an authentication service which includes a MyKad-based authentication service layer. This ensures that the government notices reach the correct recipients.
5. How is this MyEmail project going to be funded?
The MyEmail project is a Private Funding Initiative (PFI) and therefore, private-sector funded. The project sits within the ETP, which is government-facilitated and private-sector driven.
6. How much is the government's investment in this project?
This government is neither funding nor underwriting this project. This is a 100 per cent privately-funded project.
7. How did the government select the company for this project?
The foundation of the ETP is private sector-led investment. The concept of the MyEmail project was mooted in the ETP Lab in June 2010, making the idea non-exclusive and open. Any interested private party was free to submit its proposal to the government.
Proposals submitted are assessed by Entry Point Project (EPP) teams, to ensure only sustainable and implementable business models, are supported. In this case, the team for the e-government EPP comprised MAMPU and GITN Sdn Bhd. Every proposal is assessed on similar criteria.
8. Why was only one company/email provider selected for this project?
While there were a number of proposals submitted, we understand the selection was made based on a set of criteria that included best-in-practice technology, business model and the experience, and capabilities of the company. A major consideration during the evaluation was also the need to ensure security, confidentiality and authentication of the user. Based on these criteria, we understand that Tricubes met or surpassed these benchmarks.
9. Why was Tricubes Berhad selected for this project?
Tricubes has been involved in the design, development, and marketing of information technology solutions to the government and financial sectors since 1997. With current clients in Malaysia, Hong Kong and Europe, Tricubes devices are now installed in over 170 organisations.
As a market leader in Enterprise Mobility and Identity Authentication solutions, Tricubes has a full suite of enterprise offerings as well as expertise in identity management. Our technology proposal for the MyEmail project combines Tricubes' software technology, namely M2E (mobile to enterprise middleware) and Fusion (identity management middleware), with world-class cloud computing infrastructure from Microsoft.
