New Service – eIDAS Trust Service Provider Assessments

atsec is happy to announce that we are now a licensed Conformity Assessment Body (CAB) under Electronic Identification, Authentication and Trust Services (eIDAS). eIDAS is an EU regulation on electronic identification and trust services for electronic transactions that applies as law within the whole of the EU.

Trust services include electronic signatures, electronic seals, time stamps, electronic delivery services and website authentication. Together with eID, these elements are essential for the establishment of legal certainty, trust and security in electronic transactions.

The eIDAS regulation also sets out what trust service providers need to do in order to gain qualified status, which entitles them to be listed on a trusted list and to use an EU trust mark.

In order to become a qualified trust service provide, the vendor needs to apply to a conformity assessment body (CAB) who will assess compliance against the eIDAS requirements for qualified trust service providers and qualified trust services. The CAB will then produce a conformity assessment report, demonstrating how the requirements are met and submit the resulting conformity assessment reports to the supervisory body. For example, Post and Telecom Authority (PTS) is responsible for carrying out supervisory activities under the eIDAS Regulation in Sweden.
