The European Commission has pushed again the deadline for the second wave of Digital Europe Programme proposals that features the European Digital Identity Wallet below the European Digital Identity framework.
The second wave of proposals covers €58 million (roughly US$61 million) in funding to assist the implementation of the European Digital Identity Framework and the implementation of the Once Only System below the Single Digital Gateway Regulation, together with the deployment of companies for European blockchain companies infrastructure, blockchain standardization, and synthetic intelligence (AI)-based pilots to help legislation enforcement. Originally scheduled to finish on May 17, 2022, the brand new deadline is August 17, 2022.
The European Digital Identity Framework portion appears to be like to achieve the European Digital Identity’s goal of enhancing citizen entry to safe digital identity and belief companies with digital signatures and sharing private identity data. The Commission appears to be like to develop and take a look at out instruments supporting the event, implementation, and assist of the EU-eID ecosystem with decentralized applied sciences and a self-sovereign identity framework below the one-only precept and the sharing of data between public administrations within the EU below the management of the consumer.
As a part of its scope, it would pilot the usage of the European Digital Identity Wallet and its ecosystem; use circumstances in precedence areas related to the once-only precept below the Single Digital Gateway regulation; and validating technical references, requirements, parts, and options. The Commission says use-cases could construct on decentralized applied sciences just like the alternate of credentials leveraging digital ledgers.
The second a part of the venture will discover the implementation actions by private and non-private sector service suppliers to merge their techniques with the European Digital Identity Wallet and its ecosystem for exchanging digital attestations of attributes and identity credentials with a customized digital pockets. Such actions would come with improvements primarily based on digital ledgers developed by the European Blockchain Services Infrastructure (EBSI).
The European Digital Identity Wallet is a biometrically-secured digital pockets that might enable residents to confirm their ID, entry private and non-private companies, and retailer digital paperwork in an app.
The Digital Europe Programme is a €7.5 billion (roughly US$7.9 billion) digital innovation program to bolster the bloc’s “technological sovereignty,” by means of funding supercomputing, AI, cybersecurity, cloud computing, superior digital abilities, quantum infrastructure, and digital identity.
