FutureTrust - Future Trust Services for Trustworthy Global Transactions

Date: 
01/06/2016 to 31/05/2019

Introduction

FutureTrust project will address the need for globally interoperable solutions with respect to trust and trustworthiness, actively support the standardisation process, and provide Open Source software components and trustworthy services which will ease the use of eID and electronic signature technology in real world applications.

In particular the FutureTrust project will extend the existing European Trusted List (TL) infrastructure towards a “Global Trust List”, develop a comprehensive Open Source Validation Service as well as a scalable Preservation Service for electronic signatures and seals and will provide components for the eID-based application for qualified certificates across borders, and for the trustworthy creation of remote signatures and seals in a mobile environment.

Who is the project designed for?

FutureTrust is targeted at any organisation that would like to incorporate eIDAS services into their architecture but find the lack of clear guidance in the legislation a barrier to adoption. FutureTrust builds an open-source component service structure for eIDAS. Portals, both within the EU and externally will find FutureTrust of assistance. In fact, and organisation or government outside of the EU that wishes to interact with eIDAS services will find FutureTrust a real alternative to eIDAS Article 14.

How is your project benefitting the end-user?

FutureTrust makes it easy to utilise eIDAS compliant services, by building an open-source component service structure for eIDAS. Also, Non Governmental organisations, and non-EU countries can now incorporate eIDAS trustworthiness into their own systems and easily operate to eIDAS trust-levels. FutureTrust is compatible with FutureID and SkIdentity.

Please briefly describe the results your project achieved so far

eIDAS is half way through the project and is beginning to construct a number of pilots, together with assessing whether non-EU pilots should be constructed from the USA and central Asia.

What are the next steps for your project?

Continuing with the project DOW and establish a range of pilots both inside and outside the EU, together with a vibrant user community.
