Submit one of the following documents:

ĽA current foreign or United Nations Passport, including photo and signature;
ĽA current Australian Proof of Age Card - issued under a law of a State or Territory;

If you choose to submit your driver's licence as a Proof of Name/Date of Birth, you cannot use it again as a Proof of Address.
On top of this, I have to provide proof of address, with one of the following:
ĽUtility Bill e.g. Electricity, Gas, Water, Landline phone bill (issued within the last three months);
ĽNotice of Council Rates (issued within the last three months);
ĽTax Assessment provided by the Australian Taxation Office (issued within the last twelve months); or
ĽA Centrelink Statement (issued within the last twelve months).
So, at the very least my Driver's Licence and a Utility Bill. At most, my Passport and Tax / Social Security Information. Looks to me like more than enough information to steal my identity and empty out my bank accounts within minutes. Now, I realise that PayPal aren't on a maniacal spree to steal people's identities, but giving over this information, I'm extremely wary. Where is it stored? Somewhere secure I'd hope. Somewhere more secure than PSN anyway...
