European Digital Identity Wallet

European Digital Identity Wallet

Combined Session
Thursday, June 06, 2024 14:30—15:30

Introduction to the German EUDI Wallet Project

In June 2023, the German Ministry of Interior presented the whitepaper "Beyond EU Digital Identity Wallet" as a kickoff for the project to define the concept for the upcoming eIDAS 2.0 identity ecosystem in Germany. The project intends to actively involve the public and civil society, citizens and the private sector in a transparent and open process. The main objective is to define a concept for an eIDAS-compliant architecture for Germany that ensures trustworthy and EU-wide interoperable wallets and support relevant use cases to German residents with state of the art user experience in a sustainable way. It will evaluate various options for issuance and maintenance of EUDI Wallet and then build and test a prototype for this infrastructure. A first revision of the Wallet architecture proposal was published in December 2023 on OpenCode. In our session, we will review the progress of the project and present the current status of the Wallet Architecture document and give an outlook of the upcoming developments and workshops.

Qualified Ledgers – Breakthrough for Decentralized Identities in eIDAS 2.0 through EBSI?

With the European Blockchain Service Infrastructure (EBSI) the European Union established an European DLT-infrastructure provided by the Member States. This means that the DLT nodes are in the responsibility of the Member States and so ensure a government trust anchor Since EBSI contains own governance and technical specifications together with conformance tests for wallet it provides a comprehensive framework for decentralized digital identities in Europe. EBSI is widely for use cases in education, public sector or traceability and with the eIDAS Bridge already useable within the eIDAS ecosystem.
As eIDAS 2.0 is technology neutral it provides the possibility to use the technical advantages of EBSI like distribution, crypto agility or performance (in comparison to existing TrustLists) on EUDI Alle,t QEAA but also trusted issuer registries, existing interoperability on decentralized identities based on established standards like W3CVC Data Model, ETSI ESI (especially reg. digital signatures as thexy are required for QEAA acc. eIDAS 2.0) also in eIDAS 2.0. As eIDAS 2.0 is not built on a green field EBSI also supports wide adoption of EUDI Wallet and related (qualified) trust services, as EBSI is already established infrastructure in Europe
With Section 11 the eIDAS 2.0 on the other hand introduce a dedicate qualified trust service for Electronic Ledger. This allows the provision of EBSI by fully liable QTSP under eIDAS 2.0 and allows the broad utilization of DLT for use cases like supply chain & digital product passport (acc. EU Supply Chain Act), Organizational Digital Identity, Social Security, secure Data sharing etc. Within EBSI-VECTOR and EBSI-TRACE4EU more than 80 partners from all member states work on the establishment of a real decentralized and distributed ecosystem using EBSI as common infrastructure in Europe.

The session focus on the role of EBSI in the eIDAS 2.0 ecosystem so:

  • Legal Framework for EBSI within eIDAS 2.0
  • Needs on Governance in EBSI for adoption of eIDAS 2.0
  • Technical Framework
  • UseCases and Business Models for Wallets and QTSP using Ledger as well as QTSP for Ledger with EBSI and other DLT networks
  • Outlook on ongoing project and standardization
