The CEF Building Blocks Support Digital Rights in the Digital Single Market

The European Commission and EU Member States support citizen’s #DigitalRights by promoting the use of national electronic ID across borders.

The mutual recognition of eID schemes across Europe is mandated by the eIDAS Regulation, which states that by 29 September 2018 all online public services requiring electronic identification corresponding to an assurance level of 'substantial' or 'high' must be able to accept the notified eID schemes of other European countries. 

eIDAS supports electronic identification (eID) and electronic Trust Services (eTS) in the internal market. eID and eTS are key enablers for secure cross-border electronic transactions and central building blocks of the Digital Single Market.

Financed by the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF), the CEF eID Building Block primarily supports the EU Member States in the roll-out of the eIDAS Network (the technical infrastructure which connects national eID schemes together). Public and private sector Service Providers are able to connect to this network, making their online services accessible cross-border and allowing them to enjoy the legal recognition brought by eIDAS.

Trust services include electronic signatures, electronic seals, time stamps, electronic delivery service and website authentication. The CEF eSignature Building Block helps public administrations and businesses to accelerate the creation and verification of electronic signatures.

Together, eID and eTS are essential elements for the establishment of legal certainty, trust and security in electronic transactions.
