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 will support the integration of the eID DSI by opening up registrant-services provided by the administrators of the national top level domains in four European countries (the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia and the Netherlands) to the eIDAS-infrastructure and thus to the citizens of all EU countries.

This Action will expand the use of the eID building block into the internet domain industry. It will decrease practical restrictions for EU residents to manage domain names in other EU countries. This Action will allow registrants to secure their information on registered domain names through their national eIDs and thus enhance trust, assurance and security in the entire internet environment. This should prevent fake domain registrations and significantly help fighting cybercrime and protecting intellectual property rights.

Barriers for registrars to connect to the eIDAS infrastructure will be identified and shared with the relevant stakeholders, paving the way for future eID DSI uptake in various segments of the domain name industry.
