FutureID: Shaping the future of electronic identity

The FutureID project builds a comprehensive, flexible, privacy-aware and ubiquitously usable identity management infrastructure for Europe, integrating existing eID technology, trust infrastructures, emerging federated identity management services and modern credential technologies.

Users of the infrastructure will benefit from the availability of a ubiquitously usable open source eID client capable of running on any device. Service providers will be able to offer this technology as an alternative to username/password based systems. For existing and emerging trust service providers and card issuers, FutureID will provide an integrative framework for using authentication and signature related products across Europe and beyond. FutureID will develop two pilot applications and is open for additional application services.

EEMA’s role is to provide internal and external communications, dissemination activities and partner programs. We are also involved in the management of the Advisory Board and the affiliate program. From a technical perspective, we have carried out an assessment of app server/integration requirements, a survey of applicable standards and contributed to other technical work packages.

FP7-ICT-2011-8; FutureID started in April 2012 and is scheduled to finish at the end of November 2015.
