identity AG goes eIDAS based on Open eCard

(PresseBox) (Michelau, ) Open technologies for electronic identities (eID) and trust services according to the eIDAS-Regulation are enjoying increasing popularity. With identity Trust Management AG, the growing Open eCard Community has now gained another prominent supporter.

Open eCard Library is the first Open Source "eID-Kernel" according to BSI TR-03124

The Open eCard project has recently released the world's first Open Source "eID-Kernel" according to the technical guideline BSI TR-03124 (eID-Client) of the German Federal Office for Information Security (Bundesamt für Sicherheit in der Informationstechnik, BSI). Thanks to the free Open eCard Library for Android, electronic identification with the German eID card (Personalausweis) can now be directly integrated into corresponding smartphone apps. So far, this innovative and trustworthy Open Source technology has already been successfully used by the districts of Lichtenfels and Kulmbach in the area of "Smart Mobility" for the local "FiftyFifty Taxi" project. In addition, further fields of applications in the area of electronic signatures, which are currently being developed in the EU-funded "FutureTrust" project, are expected to follow soon.

In addition to the availability as Open Source, Open eCard has in particularly impressed by the proven support of the relevant guidelines of the BSI and international standards as well as its flexibility and expandability, since the high certification standard of identity AG must be maintained," adds Uwe Stelzig, CEO of identity Trust Management AG.
