European Digital Identity Wallet Webinar -
Suggested series of topics


Privacy v Useability

To maximise adoption, usability will need to be excellent in the Digital Identity Wallet, as citizens expectations are very high, given the current user experience they get from Apple and Google with their wallets.



Evolving a realistic business model 

EUDIW should be delivered free of charge by Member States to the citizens including the Qualified Electronic Signature (QES). However, who would pay for QTSP services ? Agreed that the main beneficiary, usually the Private Relying Party, should be the payer for the services provided by private and organizational EUDIW (Type 2 Wallet) which will operate in parallel to the public EUDIW.


Pros and Cons of AI-Based Persons

New opportunities to verify (Q)EAA on behalf of Relying Parties, and a possible future with the Machine Customers supported by AI linked to the EUDIW.



What type of wallets should be further developed?

Do we need to look beyond the current Large Scale Pilots and basic EU Digital Identity Wallet and begin to look at advanced wallets. Whereas the 'Type 1' Wallet is a closed wallet which operates in the regulatory domain, the Type 2 Wallet can be considered to operate in the contractual domain.


Building a strong financial payment mechanism

There is a need for a payment distribution mechanism (maybe using Zero Knowledge Proofs). Remember that any payment mechanism will need robust auditing to satisfy regulatory demands for taxation etc. Unfortunately, auditability means an audit-trail, which in turn could mean transactional disclosure.



Planning for Success

As (and if) the EUIDW becomes successful it will become an integral part of society within the EU and beyond. Threats include the risk of the EUIDW becoming an attractive target for attack, and fraud detection will become more difficult.

GTF will endeavour to address the described topics as time permits.
