TDL, in collaboration with the Digital Enlightenment Forum, organised ‘Towards Trustworthy Digital Identity in Europe‘ on the afternoon of 3 July from 13:30 to 16:00. The two and a half hour event, hosted by the Representation of the State of Hessen to the EU, was preceded by a light lunch and networking.

Our workshop brought together people to discuss the steps needed on top of eIDAS, to make identification and authentication on the Internet easy and trustworthy. Starting with a keynote presentation on eIDAS and its foreseen future developments from Andrea Servida, the workshop continued with presentations of private systems existing or under development that are privacy-respecting and easy to use and which can build on existing government or otherwise-backed identity data. A report on attribute-based systems, self-sovereign identity and blockchain-based identity was then complemented by a presentation on the problems of governments to make progress to develop citizen-friendly eID systems.
