The Swiss E-ID and Trust Infrastructure
After the rejection of the first E-ID act at the ballot in 2021, the Federal Government of Switzerland has adopted a new approach. To accommodate concerns about the protection of privacy, the new E-ID incorporates elements of self-sovereign identities. The trust infrastructure, that comes with it, will allow the issuance of other credentials by state and private actors alike. The presentation will provide an overview on the project, including considerations on interoperability.
