The long-term sustainability is linked to many other topics, such as the desirability, feasibility and profitability (either financial or in terms of time) from all stakeholders involved. Service providers are concerned with adopting eIDAS with very small budget and there are assumptions about CEF eID infrastructure and questions if it is ready or good enough for private service provision. It is therefore also important to assess the question of desirability, both from the eID service users (citizens and businesses) and from service provider perspective.
Online Service Providers (S)s), such as e-commerce retailers, financial institutions, telecom companies etc., must manage customers’ access to their ICT applications and databases and they need to do so as effectively as possible (at both levels, technical and economic). Traditionally, these SPs carry out local user identification processes, and very recently, they are increasingly refer to third-party Identity Providers, such as Social Networks and Internet mega-providers (Google, Microsoft etc.), for user authentication and service login.
LEPS project enables existing services in the financial and postal sectors to use the pan-European elD infrastructure for cross-border electronic identification and authentication (i.e. eIDAS Network) and operate under elDAS specifications and rules. In this context, the project provides technical guidance to Service Providers in how to effectively integrate the (proxy) national nodes of the eIDAS Network, to relax “connection barriers” for Service Providers such as technical complexity, speed, and cost of integration.
