eIDAS (the electronic identification, authentication and trust services) is the EU legislation that oversees electronic identification (eID), authentication and trust services for electronic transactions in the EU’s internal market.  This law is described as a legal milestone that provides a predictable regulatory environment to enable secure and seamless electronic interactions between businesses, citizens and public authorities.  It creates a European internal market for trust services — such as electronic signatures, electronic seals, time stamps, electronic delivery services and website authentication — by ensuring that they will work across borders and have the same legal status as their traditional paper-based equivalents.  This White Paper from Jumio explores the various types of electronic ID, how they’re issued, and how they help citizens in the EU and beyond conduct business with government agencies.  It answers frequently asked questions and looks at the important role identity verification providers can play in this ecosystem.
