Leveraging Smartphone Secure elements – The Benefits of QSCD Certification

Secure elements, now increasingly available on smartphones, offer enhanced security and integrity protection for PKI processes. They are especially needed for CBDC interactions, as recognised by the Bank of International Settlements Polaris project report on offline payments as well as the ECB in its concluding report on the investigation phase of the digital euro. However the lack of dedicated specifications is preventing them reaching their full potential.

Having secure elements certified as QSCD – qualified signature creation devices – is not only a key step in this direction but also bringing high-quality e-signatures within reach of all users both for online and offline interactions, a legally-recognised development with considerable implications for all wallet use cases as well as a major goal of the forthcoming eIDAS 2 digital identity wallets.

The presentation will explain why having secure elements QSCD-certified is a critical step forward as well as consider the key dimensions and practical steps to be considered for such purpose.

It should be of interest to anyone involved in ID wallets, electronic signature processes as well as digital finance use cases.
