Trust infrastructure also for other electronic proof

The political requirements for the e-ID are clear: the privacy of users must be as well-protected as possible. This requires the operation of an elaborate trust infrastructure. The Federal Council has decided that this trust infrastructure can be used for both the e-ID and other electronic credentials. The trust infrastructure will therefore also be made available to cantonal authorities and private individuals. For example, the Federal Roads Office (FEDRO), working with the Association of Road Traffic Offices (asa), is planning to offer an electronic driving licence based on the trust infrastructure. Similarly, it will be possible to obtain residence certificates, educational diplomas, membership cards etc. as electronic credentials.
