New to eIDAS and electronic IDs? Wondering about their impact on your online identity verification and KYC programs? This resource is for you.

eIDAS is the European Union’s legislation that oversees electronic identification (eID), authentication and trust services for electronic transactions in the EU’s internal market. The European Commission views these digital identity services as key enablers for secure cross-border electronic transactions and the central building blocks of the Digital Single Market.

In The eIDAS Primer, we explore the various types of electronic IDs, how they’re issued, and how they help citizens in the EU and beyond conduct business with government agencies. We answer frequently asked questions, discuss eIDAS 2.0 and digital wallets and look at the important role identity verification providers can play in the digital identity ecosystem.
