Privacy Features of European eID Card Specifications

A national eID card is a gateway to personal information. Any unwanted disclosure of personal information constitutes a violation of the citizen’s privacy rights. Apart from considerations of fundamental rights, this is also a serious obstacle to the adoption of eID card schemes and to their cross-border interoperability. The aim of this paper is to allow easy comparison between privacy features offered by European eID card specifications and thereby to facilitate identification of best practice.
