SSEDIC second year: presenting results relevant to universities

Victoriano Giralt


SSEDIC (Scoping a Single Electronic Identity Community) has entered its third year helping the European Commission (EC) to create a common view of the electronic identity landscape as input for the 2020 Digital Agenda for Europe (DAE). The results from the second year of work have recently been reviewed by the EC and published in the SSEDIC web site ( Although there are seven published documents this year, we would like to focus on three of them that are of higher relevance to Universities: results of the second SSEDIC eID survey (which has got a significant level of input from the Higher Education community), the Authentication Standards Paper and, specially, the document on eID in universities. The main aim of the presentation is raising awareness of these materials among the University IT community.
This second year work has used the input from the first year review, presented at last year's EUNIS congress in Vila Real, and its review results will be the stepping stone to the last year of work. We would like to have the views of the University IT community in order to improve SSEDIC knowledge of electronic identity in Higher Education and thus provide a better input to the DAE.
