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 will integrate the eID DSI (Digital Service Infrastructure) into the systems of 3 EDI Providers and 1 public university (Billit, SATA, ELCOM and University of Cyprus). The 4 EDI Providers 3 EDI Providers and the Cypriot public university will be connected to 4 different eIDAS nodes (Belgium, Cyprus, Italy and UK), making the following services available for cross-border authentication:

  • BILLIT Electronic Document Authentication Service (BILLIT-EDAS), associated to the eDelivery solution and to BILLIT Peppol Access Point;
  • The SATA Cloud Extraction service (SATA-CE);
  • ELCOM PECOS eService (Procure-to-Pay software);

As a result, these 3 EDI Providers and the Cypriot public university will be able to request, receive and process the new set of identification data received from the eIDAS node under the eIDAS Regulation. All services will be available for cross-border authentication in a production environment by the end of the action.
