With the increasing availability of electronic services, security and a reliable means by which identity is verified is essential.

It also highlights the role of eID as a key enabler of the economy. In the second chapter Lisha Chen-Wilson, David Argles, Michele Schiano di Zenise and Gary Wills discuss the user-centric eCertificate system aimed at supporting the eID system. Electronic Identity is essential reading for researchers, lawyers, policy makers, technologists and anyone wishing to understand the challenges of a pan-European eID.
