eIDAS

Service providers who issue digital certificates, time stamps, or digital signatures can use Thales nShield HSMs as a part of an eIDAS compliant solution.

The European Union's Electronic Identification and Trust Services (eIDAS) Regulation was developed to help establish a single European market for secure electronic commerce. For organizations that handle online transactions with European citizens, the Regulation will present significant opportunities, but it will also create new requirements. Thales e-Security nShield hardware security modules play a vital role in helping to secure eIDAS-compliant solutions.

Thales hardware security modules (HSMs) serve as root of trust

Thales e-Security is a leading provider of HSMs. Thales nShield HSMs serve as the root of trust for cryptographic data protection systems by providing a tamper-resistant environment for generating and managing encryption and signing keys and for running sensitive code.

Thales nShield HSMs comply with eIDAS standards

To help our customers comply with increasingly rigorous requirements, Thales has earned Common Criteria (CC) EAL4+ (AVA_VAN.5) certification which recognizes nShield HSMs as Secure Signature Creation Devices (SSCDs).

HSMs with this certification and SSCD recognition are compliant with the EU's eIDAS regulations* - Electronic Identity, Authentication, and Signature - designed to ensure that digital signatures, time stamps, and other transactional data comply with cross-border standards.

What does this certification mean to Thales' partners and customers?

Service providers who issue digital certificates, time stamps, or digital signatures can use nShield HSMs as a part of eIDAS compliant solutions. Customers using these solutions are compliant with these important standards.

How is Thales serving the eIDAS community? Thales is -

  • Integrating Thales HSMs with key partner applications
  • Helping enterprises implement solutions through comprehensive consulting services
  • Playing a consultative role in developing EU trust standards

Thales eIDAS Community Overview

Thales proudly partners with industry experts to deliver comprehensive, compliant solutions.

eIDAS

eIDAS is a EU regulation that establishes standards for electronic identities, authentication and signatures. The goal of the Regulation is to encourage the creation of a single European market for secure electronic commerce.

The eIDAS Regulation applies to government bodies and businesses that provide online services to European citizens, and that recognize or use identities, authentication, or signatures.

eIDAS requires that government and public commercial services recognize standard signature formats and pan-European identities. This applies to services associated with tax statements, insurance contracts, banking agreements, business-to-business electronic invoicing and pharmaceutical records. It also applies to commercial services that require a EU identity, for example, so-called “know your customer” services in banking. In addition, any trust services associated with these activities will be regulated by eIDAS.
