D4.2: Set of requirements for interoperability of Identity Management Systems

Definition and what is enabled  FIDIS
 Requirements for users, governments and merchants


Ideal scenario of full interoperability

For Libon, an ideal system is one that respects privacy and transparency for the user and one that can be used digitally from home. There should be one document comprising driving licences, ID card, passport, etc… renewed every 5 years in their local government agency. He sees the implementation of this system in two phases. The first is one of integration of data and the second of establishing synergy among ministries. For Libon the main challenges are in creating a financial model that makes it financially interesting for all parties to adopt the same systems and in developing common laws and a regulatory framework.


Timmers refers to the existing European projects on egovernment, the sub-group for eEurope Advisory Group and the importance of cross-border use of the identity systems. He sees an ideal system as one that not only makes sense for public administration but also makes sense for the private sector. Timmers stated that the objective is by 2010 interoperable electronic identification and authentication should be available and used in a number of practical cases of key importance (cross-border electronic procurement, citizen mobility and others). Timmers also refers to the key importance of trust in the egovernment services. Both Hollosi and Martin referred to the Austrian card as a reference model and said that a particularity of this model is the inclusion of the Power of Attorney.
