Security Issues in Cross-border Electronic Authentication

Improving the interoperability of electronic identification and authentication systems is a European task and a task for all Member States. Considerable efforts have been made in several projects to face the challenges of pan-European interoperability of electronic authentication and to assess the feasibility of differing approaches. ENISA analysed the current situation and assessed the security risks of electronic authentication in cross-border solutions. To visualize these risks, two different projects offering cross-border authentication have been exemplarily examined and evaluated, NETC@RDS and STORK.
