The CEF eID Digital Service Infrastructure (DSI) 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 aims to integrate eID DSI and eSignature CEF DSIs with the existing systems of the Greek Justice System in order to enable eIDAS compliant cross-border authentication and e-signature services to the end-users at EU level.

Specifically, the Greek Council of State portal will be connected to the Greek eIDAS node, allowing EU citizens and legal entities that have administrative/law disputes with the Greek Public Sector to use e-services to communicate with the relevant Greek authorities.

Moreover, the Action will enable eSeal capabilities (to digitally sign and validate) for all e-documents produced through automated delivery mechanisms in the Greek Council of State Services Portal. eSeal capabilities will be enabled for the 41 administrative courts of the Greek Council of State.

By the end of the Action, the Greek Council of State portal will be made available in production environment for cross- border authentication (via eIDAS) and for eSeal capabilities (based on DSS tool).
