Authentication in a digital world - where are we? Featuring the Crossroads Bank for Social Security (N-sight)

Location:Roularta Conference Center, Zellik



During our previous session on this topic in December 2016, we brought you an overview of the world of e-authentication. A lot has changed since then, so this session offers an update.


We’ll take a look at our government’s steps towards facilitating electronic authentication, with Frank Robben from Crossroads Bank for Social Security.  And we’ll explore how the European eIDAS regulation (for trust services for electronic transactions in the internal market) influences the issues. Plus, we’ll gain insight on the status of the ‘itsme®’ initiative of Belgian Mobile ID, the consortium of Belgian banks and telecom operators, while Doccle will reveal its vision on the opportunities generated by the eIDAS regulation.

10:15 Collaboration between private and public sector in user- and access management: The federal government's vision

Frank Robben will shed light on the federal government’s vision regarding user- and access management.  Single sign-on enables users to obtain safe and integrated access to multiple e-services, from both the private and the public sectors.  But this requires public-private collaboration, and solutions that are as inexpensive as possible for the user – while imposing a minimal administrative burden on them.  We’ll also learn about the architecture, and the eIDAS regulation within this context.

11:00 A digital society needs a digital ID

Positioned as a single digital identity that replaces all passwords on the web, itsme® was launched in May of this year.  Kris De Ryck will offer us an exclusive update on the initiative, five months on, showing how this solution enables every Belgian citizen to log in securely, share data, and sign with their mobile phone.

11:50 How eIDAS creates opportunities for fast-growing companies

The launch of the eIDAS regulation offers companies an important opportunity to build services and solutions for a more harmonised market.  Bram Lerouge shares Doccle's vision on the possibilities generated by the regulation, and how it can enable growth.  Maybe the next 'Google' will be born in Europe, thanks to eIDAS!
