Release 2.3.1 of the eIDAS sample implementation for Member States is an all-in-one package for the Java platform including binary distributions for Glassfish, WildFly, Tomcat, WebLogic, WebSphere and the source code (Maven project). This release is based on version 1.1 of the eIDAS Technical Specifications.

Main changes:

  • Added fix for a critical reported vulnerability.


  • This release was successfully tested for interoperability with previous releases of eIDAS-Node v2.3 and v1.4.5
  • This release was successfully tested with Middleware v1.1.0

For a more detailed description of the changes introduced with this release please consult the release notes and section “3 Changes” found in the eIDAS-Node Migration Guide.

Member States can use this release as a sample implementation for demonstration purposes or they can adapt it as a basis for their own eIDAS scheme.

The testing tools (demo SP, demo IdP), the supplied Specific part and the Simple Protocol, should be used for demo purposes only on your local machine, and should not be deployed in your infrastructure.

With each release, the CEF eID Team strives to improve users' CEF eID experience. Feedback received on this version will be used as a basis for updating future versions of the eIDAS node software and the technical specifications.
