Home arrow Workpackages arrow WP5 eID AND COMMON SPECIFICATIONS

In order to realize the vision on a pan-European eIDM system, and considering that the autonomy and responsibility of Member States to pursue their own eIDM goals and make appropriate arrangements thereto remain unchallenged (principle of subsidiary), minimal requirements to put in practice an eIDM infrastructure need to be agreed and followed by all parties involved. Understanding that the overall pilot objective is to demonstrate the practicability of such an interoperability framework, the WP objectives shall be:

  • To highlight the various areas (technical, legal, organizational) where a minimal common understanding, consensus and agreement is required in order to setup such a framework in an efficient, reliable, trustworthy and reusable manner. This first objective shall mostly be achieved through interactions with WP2, WP3 and WP4 at the various stages of the project.
  • To propose a set of possible common conceptual eIDM frameworks (see two suggestions hereafter – PEPS and middleware approach) in order to generalize what shall be achieved by the pilots (probably as a set of bilateral agreements) and further translate it into a scalable approach extensible to all member states with minimal integration efforts. This second objective shall initially be achieved through interactions with IDABC – eID & eSign expert groups – and obviously with WP6.x pilot applications as they become available over time.
  • To derive, from the conceptual framework, a set of practical but exhaustive common eIDM framework specifications in order to further crystallize what has been “learned” from the pilots into a set of clear specifications directly reusable to build new cross-border applications. This third objective shall initially be achieved through interactions with IDABC – eID & eSign expert groups – and obviously with WP6.x pilot applications as they become available over time. We assume that these specifications shall be enriched over time following an iterative process addressing topics by increasing complexity:
  • From personal attribute perspective: natural person identity -> legal person identity -> roles and mandates -> any kind of identity attribute ->
  • From trustworthy processes perspective: identification/registration -> strong authentication -> qualified signature -> ...
  • From an eIDM framework perspective: identity providers -> delegation -> discovery services -> ...

To promote the suggested common conceptual framework and common specifications and further amend it based on feedback received from industry and standardization bodies. This fourth objective shall initially be achieved through interactions with WP6.6.
