Secure Identity Alliance announces eIDAS Workshop in Budapest with the support of the Federal Ministry of Interior (Germany)

The Secure Identity Alliance announces its official support and participation in the eID Conference 6th Edition at the Intercontinental Hotel Budapest, Hungary, on 13 and 14 October 2014.



Paris, 26 September 2014 – On behalf of THE FEDERAL MINISTRY OF THE INTERIOR (BMI) GERMANY the Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) represented by Dr. Dennis Kügler and THE SECURITY IDENTITY ALLIANCE represented by Frederic Trojani, Chairman of the Board, will be chairing a Workshop on eIDAS on Monday 13 October at 16.15.


With the eIDAS Regulation coming into force this year and directly applicable across the EU, the workshop will look at where and how a European Model of implementation can be achieved that can bring more value to Member States, Companies and Citizens alike and improve Europe's position.

- What are the key usages for digital identity in Europe?

The workshop will do a quick review of key stakes: eGovernment, Health, Education, Transport, Bank, Telecoms, Energy, Social Support and other key economic applications for digital identity and how digital identities are central to the future of economic and social intermediation in Europe.

- Why advocating an European model?

The workshop will consider relative advantages to adopt a common model (against not doing it) in key fields such as Security, Privacy, Interoperability, Legal Consent and others. How can eIDAS be implemented in order to best reflect this European model?

- What recommendations for the identity infrastructure in Europe?

Through a synoptic look of different states implementation ( Estonia, Sweden, Germany,UK…) the workshop will look at key aspects of the technical, legal interoperability aspects through trust levels, standards, and secure technology.

- From infrastructure to architecture: building interfaces and interoperability for long term preservation

What are the key architecture recommendations to improve interoperability within an European model through Identities, credentials, signature, PKI and crypto for long term validation.

The workshop will be animated by Digital Identity Strategy Advisor and Published Author, Guy de Felcourt.

In its first year, the Alliance has laid the foundation for scaling up in years to come. The Alliance counts seven member companies to date, including the leaders in security technology and two Government Observers, EIDA (UAE) and BMI (Germany).

The Alliance has launched two workgroups and has already published some key reports including one jointly conducted by the Secure Identity Alliance and The Boston Consulting Group (BCG) confirming explosive growth of eServices based on Trusted Identity. Download here

The Secure Identity Alliance has also launched two tools:

- Security Awareness Model (eSAM), providing governments and public sector organizations with a unique self-assessment tool to benchmark current and future eDocument projects and

- eServices Provision Tracker (eSPT), a powerful reference tool that allows government agencies to share the latest use cases as they build out their next generation of secure cost-effective eServices.

The Alliance offers three types of membership, welcoming any organizations that meet its membership criteria and are willing to participate in supporting the goals of the Alliance.
