This session is hosted by Koen de Jong, Innovalor.
The European citizen await a transformation in how they control their digital identities and personal data. The European Commission (EC) announced the obligation of the member states to provide a European Digital Identity (EUDI) Wallet to their citizen to manage their digital identities and associated data. The EC published the first version of the Architecture Reference Framework (ARF) for interoperable EU Digital Identity Wallet Solutions in February. This document contains concepts based on the EC’s legislative proposal eIDAS 2.0, and requirements, recommendations and specifications for the EUDI Wallet. Further, four consortium-led large-scale pilots (LSPs) have been launched to develop use cases of the digital wallets such as cross-border payments and travelling.
In this session, the presenters give an overview of the eIDAS 2.0 regulation and the technical framework from different perspectives.
- Laura Kolinen, the national eIDAS coordinator at the Ministry of Finance, Finland will give an overview of the upcoming eIDAS-regulation and the EU’s viewpoint related to digital identity.
- Riitta Partala, the Director of Digital and Population Data Services Agency (Finnish Digital Agency) will provide insights in the Finnish Digital Agency’s participation in the large scale pilots.
- Lars Erik Myhre gives an overview of the NOBID Consortium.
- Steffen Schwalm gives a practical perspective on the current state-of-practice of the European Digital Identity. He talks about implementation challenges, how to bridge existing solutions with wallets, and shows the interaction of Large Scale Pilots, Reference Implementation and eIDAS Toolbox to build decentralized ecosystems taking into account existing solutions from GAIA-X and industry.
- Jan Lindquist, provides a critical overview of the eIDAS2 regulation and the ARF from privacy perspective, and identifies a couple of shortcomings. For example, the eIDAS2 and ARF do not consider how services using digital identity and attested attributes will inform the wallet holder the purpose of their personal data sharing. Further, there is insufficient information related to privacy rights. Solid Pods suffers from the same shortcomings.The presentation is a great opportunity for attendees interested in standardization, and potentially also give input to the standards work. His article is recently published in the Journal of ICT Standardization: “Introducing Privacy Receipts intoDLT and eIDAS” .
