The universality of e-identification and trust services in the cloud – a digital market available to everyone

The European Forum on Electronic Signature and Trust Services (EFPE) is one of the largest international conferences dedicated to the issues of trust services, in particular, the electronic signature and broadly understood public key infrastructure (PKI). This unique event is continuously evolving in Europe, providing users with current information on the latest market trends and “networking” in the growing community. Each year, the EFPE brings together international communities representing the areas of science, state and local government, the EU and business, thus becoming a mandatory meeting point on the calendar of these institutions.

This year’s XVIII edition of the conference was held in Szczecin on 6-7 June 2018, of which the main topic was the “Universality of e-identification and trust services in the cloud – a digital market available to everyone”.

The EFPE 2018 was attended by over 140 participants from 16 countries in Europe, Asia and America, namely: Saudi Arabia, Azerbaijan, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Spain, Iran, Kazakhstan, Norway, Poland, Russia, Switzerland, Ukraine, the USA, Hungary, Great Britain and Italy. Among the participants were the representatives of the European Commission, ETSI, the Ministry of Digitalisation of the Republic of Poland, public administration and commercial institutions using trust services (including a broadly represented group of financial institutions), software developers, service integrators, business advisors, as well as providers of trust services, in particular electronic signatures, identity providers and services related to electronic identification.

This year’s conference proved that we on the threshold of a dynamic opening on the domestic and international markets of trust and electronic identification services for broad applications in commercial services (both in the B2C and B2B relations), as well as in public administration, which is developing its services on-line. With the implementation and planned implementation of services based on cloud computing, trust services have “gained popularity” while electronic identification is gradually displacing paper processes carried out in the underground departments of individual entities.

During the conference, a discussion was also held on the opportunities and threats to the development of the digital market in the context of such regulations as eIDAS, GDPR or PSD2. The discussion was dominated by the opinion that properly designed and implemented trust and electronic identification services keep up with changes in the market. The representatives of public administration institutions pointed to the significance of introducing regulations at the national level, which should provide the appropriate framework for the implementation of such solutions as identification nodes or electronic delivery services. During the conference, there were also several presentations by market suppliers precisely presenting concrete how trust services, such as electronic signatures “in the cloud”, may be applied in current business processes offered to end users of the online services market – consumers and entrepreneurs.

The participants and organisers of the XVIII edition of the EFPE agreed that it is a unique moment in the trust services market, and next year’s edition of the Forum should broadly address the needs of new beneficiaries of electronic identification and trust services. They also pointed to the necessity for further close cooperation between the public and private sectors, which may contribute to the universality of application of the tools and services mentioned above.
