In 2018, in the framework of the CEF Telecom Calls managed by the Innovation and Networks Executive Agency (INEA) of the European Commission, the eID4Spain project was granted. After 18 months of hard work, we are happy to announce it has successfully concluded.
eID4Spain is an electronic identification project performed by a consortium of 8 Spanish participants. Universitat de València (UVEG) acted as the coordinating institution, with the support for technical, administrative, and knowledge management from LMT Group and the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid. The other beneficiaries of this project were Junta de Extremadura, Diputación Provincial de Ciudad Real, Diputació de València (supported by its IT provider: Guadaltel), and Ayuntamiento de Rivas Vaciamadrid, which were the public administrations that performed the technical implementation of the project.
The Action consisted in the connection of the eID platforms of the public administrations to the Spanish eIDAS node, through CL@VE 2.0, the new eID system provided by the national Spanish government. The participants worked together through different stages, such as the analysis of the legal and technical context for the implementation, the connection to the node, as well as the testing to finally conclude with live solutions which are now fully working.
Electronic identification provides many advantages for citizens since it allows them to have a secure and efficient way to identify themselves. The update of the participant platforms to the 2.0 version of CL@VE will allow citizens from all the European Union -which have an eID- to use it when making administrative procedures. In this way, the data coming from the other Member States will be received and processed by the Spanish eIDAS node, and the beneficiary systems will be also able to recognise eIDs from foreign country citizens.
eID4Spain represents an effort for the unification of electronic processes, enhancing mobility, cross-border transactions, and aiming at efficiency for all European citizens and residents.
