Who goes there?

Source: Institute for Prospective Technology Studies

The EU's Institute for Prospective Technological Studies reports on the state of the electronic identity market, with a focus on technologies, infrastructure, services and policies.

The study offers an initial exploration of markets where people's identity data are converted into credentials for access to services.

In principal, the report finds that the market for e-ID is immature. It claims that the potentially great added value of e-ID technologies in enabling the digital economy has not yet been fulfilled, and fresh efforts are needed to build identification and authentication systems that people can live with, trust and use. The study finds that usability, minimum disclosure and portability, essential features of future systems, are at the margin of the market and cross-country, cross-sector e-ID systems for business and public service are only in their infancy.
