Agreement number: INEA/CEF/ICT/A2016/1271635
Action No: 2016-EU-IA-0064
Start date: 01/05/2017. Duration: 18 months
The research group ARCOS of University Carlos III de Madrid is participating in the eID@Cloud Project, which kick-off meeting has been recently held in Madrid (Spain).
eID@Cloud is a research Project funded by Connecting Europe Facility Programme with the aim of integrating the eID system in the cloud platforms of 5 service providers (EDICOM, Officient, Aksesspunkt, eConnect and Unimaze) and connecting the to 5 different eIDAS nodes (Spain, Norway, Denmark, Netherlands and Iceland) to allow entities from one country to access service in another with their local indentification.
Main objectives of eID@Cloud are:
- To promote the uptake and use of the eID DSI.
- To facilitate access to the services provided by the 5 cloud platforms to all EU citizens and businesses using their national eID.
- To facilitate EU citizens and businesses cross-border mobility using their national eID.
- To support the Digital Single Market.
The consortium includes the following 8 partners: University Carlos III of Madrid (Coordinator), EDICOM, Officient, Aksesspunkt Norge, eConnect, LMT group, Unimaze, and Universidad Politecnica de Valencia. From those partners, 5 are private entities of the eID@Cloud consortium specialized in Integration Brokerage (EDICOM, Officient, Aksesspunkt Norge, eConnect and Unimaze). They will introduce the AS4 in their solutions and develop their SMP according to the EU Core Service Platform.
This project will support several generic eDelivery and eCommerce services of European companies, providing the eID authentication to the cross-border communication and the validation and integration of the information exchanged in the contexts B2B, B2C and B2G. The 5 cloud platforms will be able to request, receive and process the new set of identification data received from the eIDAS node under the eIDAS Regulation.
