WORKSHOP: eIDAS Deployments in the EU and Lessons for e-ID Globally
With: Gábor Bartha, Tuire Saaripuu, Jon Shamah, Shaun Topham.
eIDAS, the cross-border e-ID model which the EU has designed for the Europeans, has the potential to play an integral part of the global online ecosystem of the future. eIDAS-compliant e-IDs can provide a viable solution for accessing them and bring many benefits for platforms and their users.
Having the possibility to use a secure and reliable eID can be instrumental in building trust among strangers, while providing the necessary convenience and security. And since the use of eIDs in the global digital environment is a choice, nor an obligation imposed by regulation, it is important to define collectively some principles and rules that we can jointly subscribe to and which reflect our common understanding of how we can interact in the future.
Lessons learned in this context from the feedback gained from the ongoing deployment of eIDAS nodes will help elicit elements which be of value more globally, and in the formulation of plans for new eID systems in developing countries.
