Panel: Latest on eIDAS Legislation and What it Means for People, Business and Government

The European Union's eIDAS (Electronic Identification, Authentication and Trust Services) legislation is a cornerstone in the digital transformation of services across the EU, ensuring secure and seamless electronic transactions across Member States. This panel session brings together esteemed experts: Rob Brand from the Netherlands Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy, Dr. Moritz Heuberger from the German Interior Ministry, Vedran Lalic, Head of Office in the European Parliament, and Vicky Manaila of Intesi Group, to discuss the latest developments in eIDAS legislation.

This session will explore the recent amendments and expansions proposed to the eIDAS framework, focusing on their implications for digital identity and trust services. Our panelists will dissect how these legislative changes are poised to affect various stakeholders, including citizens, businesses, and government bodies.

Key discussion points will include:

  • The impact of eIDAS regulations on enhancing digital service accessibility and security across Europe.
  • How updates to eIDAS facilitate smoother cross-border transactions and improve interoperability among EU states.
  • Challenges and opportunities for businesses in adapting to new compliance requirements.
  • The role of digital identities in fostering a digital single market and enhancing citizen engagement with public services.

eIDAS 2, the Protocol Challenge and the Art of Timing

If governments or enterprises want to implement digital identity systems (eID/eIDAS2), they need to decide on a lot of technical topics with a high degree of uncertainty. One goal is to be interoperable across Europe or even on a global level and with the private sector. Moreover, existing and established eID systems and schemas further complicate the decision-making process.

The art of timing:
One key question arises in this scenario: when is the right time to initiate the implementation of eID/eIDAS2 systems? For governments, timely adoption of the eIDAS2 regulation is imperative, ensuring compliance and unlocking economic advantages associated with an advanced eID infrastructure. On the corporate front, companies face similar challenges delaying implementation until the eIDAS2 compliant eID is in production, which may result in losing ground to competitors who are quick to adapt.
The risk of making incorrect decisions leading to a protocol lock-in situation looms large, jeopardizing the long-term viability and adaptability of the chosen eID solution.

How to solve the dilemma? 
But how can you avoid being too early and making the wrong technical decisions?
In the presentation we will show you an approach how to start with an eID implementation and avoid protocol lock-in and highlight a way how to integrate in existing eID schemas.
