Note: Since for more than a year I’ve been reading about the downsides of the eIDAS legislation. Their sources where mostly DOT.com US entities. The same stuff happened when the EU implemented the new GDPR and now similar things happen with the. upcoming eIDAS 2.0 and the the upcoming AI law. Here I outline the EU position to clarify the situation. This isn’t news, but Since the anti e-IEDAS campaign keeps pushing the agenda it’s still relevant imo.

"The discussion on the eIDAS Regulation has entered its most important phase in the European Parliament and Council. Mozilla has recently launched a campaign in the form of a website aimed at political decision-makers, but also the general public.

“As with the Google response, you are taking a very US-centric approach to lobbying that is only going to reduce the chance of influencing the outcome. EU politics are not the same as US politics.”

    Context and FYI, official eIDAS site

    The eIDAS Regulation:

    • ensures that people and businesses can use their own national electronic identification schemes (eIDs) to access public services available online in other EU countries;
    • creates a European internal market for trust services by ensuring that they will work across borders and have the same legal status as their traditional paper based equivalents.
