EU Digital Identity Wallet

Objectives of the eIDAS 2.0 regulation

Enhanced safety

eIDAS2 introduces stricter security standards for trusted services, reducing the risk of fraud and identity theft.

Interoperability

Trust services will have to be interoperable, like EUDI Wallets. European citizens will thus be able to use a single digital identity recognized in all member states.

Trusted services

Improved authentication and identification for businesses and individuals through the introduction of new qualified trust services.

Focus on EUDIW and qualified attestations

eIDAS 2.0 introduces major innovations, primarily with European Digital Identity Wallets (EUDI Wallet).

Designed to be easily accessible from mobile, they enable citizens and businesses to present their identities (and/or data) and access digital services across the EU.

European wallet (EUDIW)

Each wallet stores the identities and credentials of an individual (PID) or corporate entity (LPID). A Credential corresponds to the digital proof of an assertion concerning a person, and is issued by a trusted source.

Confidentiality: Users must have total control over their data. When asked by a third party to submit a Credential file, users must be able to easily understand the data they are being asked to submit, and to validate or deny their submission.
Wallet interoperability: Each country can add functionalities to its national wallet, provided that interoperability with identification schemes is respected.

Qualified certifications

Qualified attribute certifications & others

Qualified Electronic Attribute Attestations (QEAAs ): authenticate attributes issued by a trusted actor at European level (e.g. nationality, professional status).
Wallets can be used to issue, store and present verified attestations (VCs), including QEAAs, such as identity, IBAN or Kbis...
Other new services extend the scope of digital trust:
- Management of signature creation systems /
qualified electronic seals
- Electronic archiving and electronic registers

What are the eIDAS 2.0 obligations for companies and sectors?

Public bodies, certain services or sectors are obliged to accept the EUDI Wallet as a means of authentication under certain conditions.

I would like to know more
  • Obligatory for those requiring strong authentication

    Companies requiring strong authentication under national or EU law (or contractual obligation) in certain sectors must accept the wallet.

  • Obligation for certain sectors

    Transport, energy, banking, financial services, social security, healthcare, drinking water, postal services, digital infrastructure, education and telecommunications.

  • Obligation for large online platforms

    By 2027, platforms with +45M monthly active users requiring user authentication will be obliged to accept users logging in with a European wallet.

4 major European pilots to understand EUDIW

To create the most reliable, useful and secure European wallet, four Large Scale Pilots have been launched. Several companies and countries are exploring the use of EUDIW in a variety of various use cases, sectors and real-life conditions.

eIDAS 2.0 wallet opportunities for businesses

Depending on the business sector, examples of use cases for EUDIW are extremely varied.

Here are just a few examples, but there are many others, and many other sectors just as concerned.

  • Partner relationship management (KYB-KYS): simplify requests for the presentation of legal documents (Kbis extract, IBAN, tax and social security certificates, etc.).

  • KYC procedures: ask your customers to present the documents required for your KYC procedure (personal identity, IBAN, proof of address, etc.).
    Learn more >

  • Proof of age or majority: when visiting the site, Internet users must present proof of majority from their wallet. This ensures compliance with current legislation, without compromising the onboarding of adults.
