An interesting article refers to the ten-year success of the Estonian eID card. On January 28th 2002 the national eID card was launched in Estonia and since then around 1.6 million cards have been issued, and citizens have well integrated their use into their daily lives.

AS Sertifitseerimiskeskus - STORK partner as well- is the certification authority that issues the eID card, among other national identity documents such as the residence card and the mobile ID. It has also created the basic software needed for using the card and developed the DigiDoc software, which provides the following services: digital signature, eSignature validity verification, and data encryption. The head of AS Sertifitseerimiskeskus, Mr Kalev Pihli said that the eID card has been a success, both in Estonia and abroad: "While the success did not come easy, the benefits of the ID cards are real today."
