The European eIDAS regulation (electronic identification and trust services) aims to ensure that:
The EU has drawn up strict frameworks and guidelines to guarantee the safety, reliability, and legality of the above services. Only parties that certify to the highest level can legally offer digital signatures and online identification solutions. In this article, we will be looking closely at the regulation regarding identifying companies and individuals online: the eID.
What is eID (electronic identification)?
Online identification (eID) allows people to share their identities with companies, organizations, and governments safely and reliably. This will enable individuals to access and use online services in a controlled manner in any country within the EU. On the one hand, no more data is collected about the person than is strictly necessary to make a transaction, while on the other hand, the person is fully accountable for their actions.
