The CEF eID building block helps public administrations and private online service providers to easily extend the use of their online services to citizens from other EU Member States.

The Action's objective is to connect public e-services provided by 4 Spanish local and regional administrations (Junta de Extremadura, Diputación de Ciudad Real, Diputación de València and Ayuntamiento de Rivas Vaciamadrid) to the Spanish eIDAS node via CL@VE 2.0 in order to enable cross-border authentication in line with the eIDAS Regulation.

The eIDAS node service is available as a functionality incorporated into CL@VE 2.0 (the main Spanish e-government solution used to authenticate citizens). Four regional and local administrations are already connected to a previous version of the CL@VE platform (not linked to the eIDAS node). This action will therefore adapt their solutions to connect to CL@VE 2.0 according to the new interfaces and requirements.

By the end of the Action, the e-services will be made available in production environment for cross- border authentication (via eIDAS). Furthermore, all participants will disseminate the Action to other national and European public entities.

The Action builds on the results of the CEF Action 2015-ES-IA-0087, which set up the link between Cl@ve and the eIDAS node.
