The project implemented and deployed in various MS a federated platform based on common specification and assurance model. Aimed to the provision of electronic identification services related to citizen´s accessing to eGovernment applications in cross-borders set-ups. ISA programme was appointed for the sustainability of STORK´s results in the short/ medium-term.

Click to edit Master title style 1. STORK Sustainability. Top Reasons to use STORK: Easy-to-deploy solution for the provision and consumption of secure identity services of national and foreign citizens. Access to a Reference interoperability technical solution for the mutual recognition of eID at European level. It can be used as a service or as tool: Flexible interoperable solution that can handle any type of electronic identities and assurance levels. Solution maintained and supported by the EC and many MS. 6

ECAS-STORK integration The problem MS officials and civil servants from all over Europe need to access EC corporate applications Use of ECAS credentials since national eIDs are not recognised by the EC applications. A first proof of concept demonstrating the integration of ECAS with STORK project was funded by IDABC programme and executed in 2011. The current situation ECAS-STORK integration already in production mode In use already by CIRCABC and the eJustice Portal

ECAS-STORK integration Beneficiaries and anticipated benefits European Institutions and Agencies will benefit from ECAS integration with STORK with a minimal impact, by accepting higher assurance eID mechanisms from the MS and by increasing the trust and confidence on the user's identities For MS's public administrations, consistency is increased since the same credentials are used to access both national information systems and European Commission information systems. Levels of security are aligned as well with those provided by MS.

Click to edit Master title style Objectives o Public officials should be able to log to EC applications and be granted access based on their role or position in a national administration. o Extend ECAS multi factor authentication to a federated authorisation solution o Access to EC Applications using the national model for authorisation and ECAS-STORK. 3. Action 1.18: Federated Authorisation across public administrations

At least 5 stakeholdersAt least one EC application At least one MS application To be decided 3. Objective

Action 1.9: DSS tool This action supports development of a software tool DSS (Digital Signature Software) that creates and verifies legally binding electronic signatures. The tool makes use of the MS Trust Status Lists (TSLs) to check the trustworthiness of the signing certificates. Open source. Available to all MS and for any electronic procedure.
Click to edit Master title style 14 4. DSS: TSL & eSignature creation/ verification tools The legal basis Comitology Decision 2009/767/EC defined "Trust Lists" (TSL) as means to facilitate technical recognition of qualified electronic certificates cross-border. Under that Decision each Member States has to establish, maintain and publish in a secure way a trust list of certification service providers issuing qualified certificates to the public Decision 2011/ 130/ EC establishes minimum technical requirements for the interoperable cross-border processing of documents signed electronically by competent authorities under Directive 2006/123/EC

DSS: Beneficiaries and benefits Public administrations, Tool allowing the governance of the MS trusted lists Easier setting up of secure eGoverment services Solution to enhance trust and implement interoperable e- signatures for national & cross border completion of administrative formalities Possibility to validate electronically signed documents coming from different competent authorities For business and citizens, Higher levels of trust and confidence on electronic transactions Access to fully-fledged transactional public services, saving time

What is sTESTA? sTESTA (secured Trans European Services for Telematics between Administrations) is a communication platform to exchange electronic data between European and Member States administrations in a secure, reliable and efficient way Facilitate cooperation between public administrations in various policy areas. Consolidate existing networks by providing a secure, reliable and flexible communication service layer. Exchange both unclassified and classified information (up to "EU RESTRICTED "). The sTESTA service platform is the continuation of the service infrastructure initiated and developed under the IDA, and IDABC programmes of the EC
Click to edit Master title style Goal Platform to support the secure exchange of documents between Public Administrations at national and European level, so as to: Reduce overall costs of digital data exchange Enable the digitisation of business processes Secure digital data exchange Promote and re-use of interoperable solutions Usable as a tool or as a service: e-TrustEx can be installed by the Public Administration or used as a service on the cloud.
