beta Discussing the Digital Government Declaration

[...] Governments should provide citizens with security and privacy of transactions and data, ensuring that people and businesses can use their own national electronic identification schemes to access public services in other EU countries. Concerning data security and protection, the core question is to guarantee that citizens’ data and information possessed by the public administration is managed and stored in way that prevent manipulation. Hence we propose to:

If we want e-government to responsibly develop in Europe, we need to stop the outright lying about the level of confindetiality and integrity that eIDAS, and the like sof Estonia e-Residency solutions, provide in the current threat landscape, and get to work to build reasonably trustworthy techs for all.

Perhaps have a look at the 'Laws of Identity' (Kim Cameron) and consider their implications for policy. There's a roadmap to follow, and both private and public sector need to agree on a destination that better respects citizen privacy. See

National electronic identification is sort of outdated. Identification dépends on the process you want to make transaction with. Bank Cards, Telephone numbers, Social Security pass, Car nummer, these are all very valid identification reference that do not relate to the nationality of the owner.

In my opinion, fast uptake of eID throughout Europe should be the first and foremost proposal of the Declaration. eID is the pre-condition to almost any aspects of the digital government vision, while its uneven adoption by member states slows down the development of a digital internal market. The eIDAS framework took a long time to develop but its implementation depends only on member states notifying their schemes and providing more, better and more secure online services for their citizens. In this respect, the Declaration might include commitments on specific implementation measures.
