What is eIDAS?

The Electronic Identification, Authentication and Trust Services, or eIDAS, regulation was created to establish trust in electronic transactions between individuals, organizations and government entities across European member states. Under eIDAS, citizens and businesses can use their native national electronic identification schemes (eIDs) when accessing public services within other EU member states that use eIDs. Additionally, this regulation implements standards for electronic signatures, time stamps, electronic seals, and other proof of authentication, including electronic certification and registered delivery services that give those electronic transactions the same legal status as if they were conducted on paper.
