CEF EuroLogin2020 Project update

UPDATE June 2022

 

As we are taking part in the EUROLogin20 project, we want to keep you updated with the latest news about the technical implementation. The consortium has been working on the analysis phase the previous months, in which we studied the national context to start a sound implementation. During our study we encountered some obstacles that will affect our solution. Supported by the Universitat de València we discussed the situation with HaDEA. Finally, the EUROLogin20 project has received good news from HaDEA. Soon we will start with the technical implementation where we will continue to work on the integration of the digital identification (eID) Digital Service Infrastructure (DSI) into the test system of the Dutch European electronic data interchange (EDI) provider.

EUROLogin20 was granted under the CEF Telecom Program and is co-financed by the Health and Digital Executive Agency (HaDEA).

The EUROLogin20 consortium is a transnational partnership from France, Italy, the Netherlands, and Spain. The objective pursued by each EDI provider is to connect their own platform to the corresponding national eIDAS node, thus facilitating the authentication of users from any Member State and enhancing the electronic services provided to European citizens. EUROLogin2020 aims to the integration of the electronic Identification Digital Service Infrastructure (eID DSI), to facilitate access to the services provided by 3 European Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) Providers: Nubilaria Srl (Italy), headON (the Netherlands), and Generix Group (France), promoting an eIDAS based ecosystem across Europe.

The European Commission’s European Health and Digital Executive Agency (HaDEA) is co-funding this project through the CEF Telecom programme. More information can be found on the official website: http://cef.uv.es/EUROLogin2020/

Objectives

The three EDI Providers will be able to request, receive and process the new set of identification data received from the eIDAS interoperability nodes and ensure the eIDAS Regulation requirements.

This action will promote the uptake and use of the eID DSI and will facilitate secure access to the provided services by the three EDI providers to all EU citizens and businesses using their national eID, ensuring cross-border mobility and support for the Digital Single Market.

Activities

Project management: The main objective of this activity is to ensure the project’s efficient implementation in line with the Grant Agreement. 

Communication: The main objective of the activity is to promote the Action’s results. During the Action, the beneficiaries’ dissemination performance will be monitored and assessed. 

Analysis and design: This activity will include the test for the implementation of the eID modules of the cloud platforms and eID solutions according to the technical specifications and requirements defined by the French, Italian, and Dutch eIDAS nodes. 

Connection: This activity aims at connecting 3 EDI Providers to the respective eIDAS nodes to allow for cross-border authentication. The implementation will allow the cross-border authentication of European citizens by processing the new set of data received from the eIDAS node. After that all services will be available in production environment and the cross-border authentication will be available for all countries whose eID schemes have been formally notified to the European Commission. All e-services will be maintained by the beneficiaries after the end of the Action and available for their clients. 

Final testing and Go-Live: The tests will focus to the implementations, ensuring interoperability and promoting collaboration between all beneficiaries of this Action, as well as implicating the eIDAS nodes.

CargoLedger & headON

Last November we concluded the analysis phase, where we analyzed the different legal frameworks to work with, such as the European Regulations, mainly the eIDAS Regulation and our national context. 

We delved into the current legalization and regulation of our Dutch eIDAS node. The outcome showed us that we needed to explore alternative solutions we have to design. Therefore, we also worked on assessing the different alternatives for our implementation, also taking into account our own particular needs.

Our next stage will be the technical implementation.
