Development of European digital economies depends on e-ID

Wednesday 29 May 2013 | 01:46 PM CET

The digital economies of European countries could account for up to 28 percent of GDP by 2020, but this depends on the successful roll-outs of electronic identities, a recent study points out.

According to the Secure Identity Alliance (SIA), currently, only 15 percent of e-government initiatives are completely successful, 50 percent achieve only partial success and 30 percent are abandoned and never implemented. The same source shows that privacy, security, interoperability and convenience are the four most important guiding principles.

Frederic Trojani, chairman of the SIA, cited by online media outlet Computer Weekly, have declared that the main objective of the SIA is to accelerate the transition to smart e-IDs to support open, interoperable and efficient roll-outs of e-government services.

The SIA was formed in Marched 2013 by Dutch digital security company Gemalto, French identification, detection and e-document solutions company Morpho, a subsidiary of Safran Group, innovation company 3M and Oberthur Technologies, a France-based provider of security and identification solutions and services.
