INFORMATION CARDS AND AFFIRMATIVE STATEMENTS

Mario Ivkovic, Martin Centner

Abstract

E-government services require strong methods of identification and authentication in order to protect personal rights and to comply with corresponding laws. The requirements for the authentication process can be fulfilled by electronic signatures. Identification in e-government applications often relies on government-issued identifiers provided by electronic identity (eID) cards. An eID card with signature creation capabilities is typically called Citizen Card. The Information Cards technology, a recently introduced user-centric identity management framework, gains more and more importance if the field of eID. Expecting a high importance of Information Cards in the future, it would be very reasonable to utilize them for e-government services. In this paper we present an approach to use Citizen Cards together with Information Cards for identification and authentication in e-government services.
