The eIDAS regulation applies to electronic identification, trust services and electronic documents for electronic transactions. It repeals and broadens the scope of Directive 1999/93/EC. eIDAS also establishes an interoperability framework for the different systems in place in EU Member States to promote the development of a digital trust market.
The regulation sets requirements for the mutual recognition of electronic means of identification and electronic signatures for exchanges between public sector entities and users.
As electronic documents exchanges grow in number, high-level trust services must be implemented in order to ensure the security of the information system.
Digital identity is at the heart of these issues, which is why trust services include strong authentication, encryption for confidentiality, electronic signature for proof and timestamp for auditability.
In addition, using an electronic signature makes it possible to ensure the signatory’s moral commitment and his/her consent in digital form. Traceability and proof of the different actions performed are useful for audit purposes.
That’s not all!
