    Some recent experience to be shared on the topic of building identity frameworks (in legal, technical and organizational aspects):

     

    • In India, the team works with a telecom to develop a range of product offerings fitting into the general framework of Digital India strategy,  including electronic identity, electronic signature, privacy-driven data market, consent-based data access and data portability. The experts have designed and participated in the development of electronic identity and electronic signature products being deployed in the field. Both of these leverage existing legal and process frameworks while providing Indian citizens with unprecedented levels of assurance in their daily electronic transactions.

     

    • For the International Committee of the Red Cross, the team conducted analysis of Identity and Access Management (IAM) and Customer Identity and Access Management (CIAM) identification schemes.

    E-ID and X-road data exchange between government and private sector entities

    Cybernetica

    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.

    It has enabled to increase the depth of cooperation between public organizations and reduced paper work exponentially so that public employees can concentrate on tasks that require human interaction.
