Sebastian Rohr: eGovernment and eID in Europe23.02.2009Sebastian Rohr
Ever since the infamous �Signaturgesetz� (law for the regulation of electronic signatures) had passed the Bundestag (parliament) in Germany, the industry moaned about the �signature inhibition effect� this law had and still has. Attending the not so obviously related event on the �Industrialization of Cybercrime� some weeks ago, organized by Bitkom and the Ministry of Economics in Berlin, I finally heard one of the well-known lawyers, Mr. Harder from Munich, admit, that the lawyers might have �over – engineered� the whole thing! Well, the next sentence was Mr. Harders� attempt to put that into perspective, claiming that at least: �it�s very secure� (sic!). Read the article

eGovernment Leadership24.04.2008 09:30-10:00Prof. Dr. Reinhard Posch, Republic of Austria
eGovernment Applications in Europe so far have not been broadly accepted, probably due to a lack of awareness and to not exploiting possible synergies on a European scale. The European Services Directive has the potential to significantly rise awareness and opens up new synergy potentials, as it liberates cross-border service offerings through multiple industries. The Services Directive will push the economy into an active role, enabled through new eGovernment applications. The EC Services Directive has to be put in force in each EC member country until the end of 2009 and all administrative processes related to it have to then be available electronically. Secure eGovernment therefore wins a new, European dimension. Implementing these processes electonically, will enable companies from any EC member country to easily offer services cross-border to other EC member countries. It therefore will be an important task, to rise awareness for these eGovernment applications related to… View details

eGovernment Standards24.04.2008 11:30-12:30Birger Streckel, Dataport
In 2007/08 the German BLK-AG IT Justiz (Bund-Länder-Commission, IT-Justice-workgroup) had to develop a concept for registration and identity management of lawyers, courts and citizens with the concrete application of a secure electronic message exchange between these parties. Since secure access and registration is a common demand of most e-government (including e-justice-) applications it is desirable to have a common standard for governmental identity management. Such a standard will be necessary for later federation and reutilization of identities between governmental applications. To promote the idea of a common standard, the concept was called SAFE (Secure Access to Federated E-Government) and was designed as an extension on top of a base document that is a new general approach for governmental identity management. It is based on the WS-* specification stack, including a WS-Trust Identity Provider and a foundation for active Federation of identities and SPML as the… View details
Integrated User and Access Management in the Belgian Social Sector23.04.2008 15:00-16:00Bob Lannoy, SMALS
The Belgian social sector consists of 2,000 social sector actors and offers 190 electronic services for mutual information exchange amongst all actors in the social sector. This is coordinated by the Crossroads Bank for Social Security. Additionally an integrated portal site (www.socialsecurity.be) is accessible by companies, citizens and professionals. This portal contains nearly 60 electronic transactions mainly for employers but also for citizens. Also the different federal and regional governmental bodies offer electronic transactions on their respective portals and websites. Identification and authentication problems were already resolved using a federated approach (two identity providers & SAML redirection) and by means of the Belgian Electronic ID-card. The authorisation problem in all its complexity was and still is the biggest issue. There were several separate initiatives to tackle the authorisation management on a specific level. The need for a unified vision… View details
