eIDAS-Node integration package

About the service

The eIDAS-Node software is a sample implementation of the eID eIDAS Profile. It was developed by the European Commission with the help of Member States collaborating in the technical sub-committee of the eIDAS Expert Group. The eIDAS-Node software contains the necessary modules to help Member States to communicate with other eIDAS-compliant counterparts in a centralised or distributed fashion.

The sample implementation is composed of the following tools:

  • eIDAS-Node: an implementation of the eID eIDAS Profile able to communicate with other nodes of the eIDAS Network. The eIDAS-Node can either request (via an eIDAS-Node Connector) or provide (via an eIDAS-Node Proxy Service) cross-border authentication.
  • Testing tools (demo Service Provider and demo Identity Provider): additional tools for setting up a demo environment for testing purposes. 

The testing tools should be used for demo purposes only and should not be deployed in a production environment.   

The users of the eIDAS-Node sample implementation remain fully responsible for its integration with back-end systems (Service Providers and Identity Providers), testing, deployment and operation. The support and maintenance of the sample implementation, as well as any other auxiliary services, are provided by the European Commission according to the terms defined in the European Union Public Licence (EUPL).

Who can use the service?

The sample software is mainly intended for eIDAS-Node implementers and operators that are responsible for setting up and managing the eIDAS-Node in their respective Member States.

Benefits of using the service

The adoption of the eIDAS-Node sample implementation brings the following benefits:

  • Reduced costs of creating and maintaining eIDAS compliant software components;
  • Reduced learning curve for adopters interested in taking part in the eIDAS Network.
