Deploying a National eID Scheme under eIDAS
Under eIDAS Regulation, Member-States shall follow a specific procedure called scheme notification, pursuant to which a Member-State notifies its electronic identification (eID) scheme(s) to a delegated service of the European Commission. When a new eID scheme is submitted (pre-notified), a peer-revieweing committee consisting of Member-State reviewers is established and the eID scheme goes under peer-reviewing according to specific evaluation criteria, as per EU 2015/1502.
It is obligatory that the schemes which end-up successfully notified are mutually recognized among Member-States, enabling online citizen/company access of a Member-State's public services by another. Obviously, strong and consistent security across notified eID schemes is crucial.
SpearIT, being actively involved with national eID scheme projects under eIDAS, can accelerate your eID scheme notification procedure and guide you to achieve mutual scheme acceptance in EU, by providing holistic eID consulting services, including:
- Scoping of the eID LoA requirements
- Gap Analysis of national legislature
