The CEF eID Digital Service Infrastructure (DSI) helps public administrations and private online service providers to extend the use of their online services to citizens from other EU Member States in line with the eIDAS Regulation. This is enabled by the eIDAS Network that it composed of eIDAS-Nodes implemented at the Member State level.

The Action supported the rollout of the eIDAS infrastructure in the Czech Republic, by preparing and connecting the Czech Republic infrastructure to the eIDAS Network.

Specifically, the Action set up a Czech Republic eIDAS node (eIDAS Proxy service) linked to the national eID solution and ensured its operation for 3 years. Thanks to the agreement with the National Registers Authority, the beneficiary operates now the official eIDAS node in the Czech Republic.

As a result of the Action, EU citizens with notified eIDs can authenticate to the public e-services in the Czech Republic and Czech citizens will be able soon (as of September 2020) to authentication to the public e-services in other EU Member States.
