Information about the project
Authentication and e-Signature Service SI-PASS
The project – Authentication and e-Signature Service SI-PASS - has been established as part of the governmental IT strategy of Republic of Slovenia which focuses on providing building blocks in order to enhance development of e-services provided by public administration in Slovenia. SI-PASS is operated by the Trust Service Authority of Slovenia (SI-TRUST) at the Ministry of Public Administration and consists of two basic building blocks for establishing confidence in online business, namely a central user-authentication system and a remote e-signature service. The central user-authentication building block represents a single point for identity validation of different entities (citizens, business entities, public officials). It connects their e-identities and identification data (attributes) stored by various identity and attribute providers with different e-services provided by public administration to citizens and businesses.The remote e-signature building block allows electronic signature of documents, whereby the e-signature is created using a dedicated user certificate and the corresponding private key, which is stored securely in the building block itself, so that only the certificate owner is entitled to access it but he/she doesn’t need any dedicated software to create e-signatures.
National implementation: Slovenia
Planned for future from 01/01/2014 to 30/06/2018
