    The X-Road is the backbone of e-Estonia and was initiated by the Estonian government to enable secure data exchange between governmental organisations. The first version was developed by Cybernetica and launched in 2001.

    X-Road is a distributed information exchange platform that makes it possible for all different systems to communicate all across the governmental sector; for example, the police can access data from the health system, tax board or business registry and vice versa.

In cooperation of SK ID Solutions and Cybernetica the so-called Smart ID was developed. Smart-ID is an app based new generation electronic identity designed to use conveniently on smart devices, while still keeping high level of security.

The framework serves as a guiding tool for changing management tasks in government and society digitalization.
