eAuthentication Workshop Kick-off meeting

The kick off meeting will be held in Brussels on 16 September, 2003

With the completion of OSCIE, a CEN/ISSS (pre)standardisation of selected parts of the specification has been triggered to ensure that the documents are subjected to wider consultation and their maintenance for the near future is well assured.The OSCIE parts are being contributed to a new CEN/ISSS Workshop on eAuthentication for use in creation of a set of CEN Workshop Agreements.

The OSCIE parts being submitted for this CWA process are primarily the GIF Framework, Public identity (TB 1) whitebook, multi-application (TB 7) architecture and the user requirements (TB 8) Best Practice Manual design guidelines relating to IAS. This is complementary to the OSCIE parts and referenced documents that are already (or in the process of becoming) recognised CWAs.

It is envisioned that during a second phase the resulting CWAs will be converted into recognised European Standard(s). Discussions with CEN/TC224 as the relevant body on the eAuthentication formal standards issue are ongoing.

In addition to CEN/ISSS standardisation a concerted Global Standards Collaboration Forum with Japan and USA is active on getting a formal ISO/IEC standard for the common eAuthentication elements.

CEN/ISSS hosted a preliminary meeting for a new CEN/ISSS Workshop on eAuthentication (WS/eAuth) on 23 April 2003, in Brussels. The Workshop offers the opportunity to assist in establishing a coordinated electronic approach towards the functionalities of cardholder identification, authentication and digital signature mechanisms in the European Union. This common approach will simplify life for citizens in the information society and help accelerate provision of cost-effective eGovernment services.
