FutureTrust in 6 Easy Steps

Service Descriptions

Identity Management Service (IdMS)

Many EU Member States, and some non-European countries have established eID services, which produce slightly different authentication tokens. In addition, industrial standardization activities have produced many different standards.  The IdMS will be able to consume a broad variety of such authentication tokens, work with a broad variety of mobile identification services and transform them into a standardized, interoperable and secure format. The choice of this standardized format will be based on industry best practices, and on the forthcoming eIDAS interoperability framework (eIDAS -Interoperability Architecture, 2015). Moreover, the IdMS will be able to directly communicate with a selection of European and non-European eID services.

Validation Service

The Validation Service will implement the standard (ETSI EN 319 102-1) and will be able to validate arbitrary advanced electronic signatures using an XML-based validation policy and returning a standardized validation report according to the forthcoming ETSI EN 319 102-2 standard. The FutureTrust Validation Service will be an Open Source component, which may be used for the implementation of a “Qualified validation service for qualified electronic signatures” according to Article 33 of (2014/910/EU).

Preservation Service

The Preservation Service will aim at high scalability and be able to preserve the evidence of a very large number of electronic signatures in the most efficient manner. The FutureTrust project aims at providing the Open Source reference implementation for the forthcoming ETSI-standard required for the implementation of a "Qualified preservation service for qualified electronic signatures” according to Article 34 of (2014/910/EU).

Mobile Signing and Sealing Services

The mobile Signing and Sealing Service will support the eID-based enrolment for qualified certificates and the mobile creation of signatures and seals across borders and will boost the usage of electronic signatures in Europe and beyond.

Global Trust List

In order to extend the eIDAS-vision to a global scale, the FutureTrust project will design, implement and maintain a “Global Trust List” (gTSL), which extends the current Trust Service Status List (TSL) model based on (ETSI TS 199 612) in two dimensions: On the one hand side, the gTSL will not only allow to manage trust anchors with respect to classical trust services, but also allows to manage Trust Anchors and Meta Data of Identity Providers acting within the “eIDAS - Interoperability Framework” according to Article 12 of (2014/910/EU) and similar SAML and OpenID Connect based trust frameworks for identity management with well defined Levels of Assurance (LoA). On the other hand, the gTSL will extend the scope of the current TSL model to cover other regions in the world, which may be organized in a global network of regional trust scheme providers. For this purpose the gTSL will support the trust assessment for new trust services.
