Frequently asked questions and concerns about regulations in the trust business

No matter what you want to know about digital trust, current regulations, or the latest technology trends. Are you curious about eIDAS 2.0, NIS-2, DORA, or even passkeys? We have compiled different FAQ's just for you:

What is eIDAS 2.0, and how does it differ from the original eIDAS regulation?
eIDAS 2.0 is a revision of the original eIDAS regulation 2014, officially known as the European Digital Identity Framework. It aims to promote the European trust landscape without undermining the sovereignty of EU Member States. This update has several implications for businesses, particularly in the digital services sector. For example, introducing eID wallets will give EU citizens and legal entities easier access to digital services while facilitating cross-border recognition of identity solutions.
What are the implications of eIDAS 2.0 on the provision of digital identity solutions?

The new regulation means that EU citizens and legal entities will have access to eID wallets that will be used for authentication across a wide range of digital services. Organizations must prepare to integrate these solutions and reap the benefits of streamlined authentication. For example, adopting eID wallets across industries has led to a smoother and more secure customer authentication process, ultimately increasing customer satisfaction and loyalty.  

How does eIDAS 2.0 influence cross-border recognition of identity solutions?
One of the key objectives of eIDAS 2.0 is to promote the cross-border recognition of identity solutions. This means that companies can extend their digital services across different European countries. For example, financial institutions can expand their customer base to international markets as eIDAS 2.0 enables seamless and trusted identity verification. 
How do Passkeys address security concerns and privacy requirements?
Passkeys are designed with security and privacy in mind. Passkeys use asymmetric cryptography to ensure that sensitive authentication data remains protected at all times. Using a private key stored on the user's device reduces the risk of unauthorized access, while the absence of a shared secret eliminates the vulnerabilities associated with password-based authentication. In addition, Passkeys adhere to strict privacy standards as the user retains complete control of their private key, preventing unauthorized access or data compromise. 
What do I need to do to get started with Passkeys?
Rely on a trusted partner to start the journey with Passkeys and take digital authentication to the next level! Swisscom Trust Services can provide a tailored solution to meet your needs as one of the leading experts in Passkeys. Our dedicated team is here to ensure a seamless transition to Passkeys and help you reap the benefits of this innovative technology.
