GSMA launches Spain-Finland Mobile Connect trial

Tuesday 8 December 2015 | 14:50 CET | News
The GSMA has launched a trial of its Mobile Connect service in Spain and Finland, establishing proof-of-concept for cross-border authentication to e-Government services. The pilot, launched on 16 November, will demonstrate how Mobile Connect can be used to identify an EU citizen of one Member State in order to gain access to a public service of another. The GSMA said Mobile Connect aims to offer a simple way of achieving pan-European federation of cross-border services for the EU governments compatible with the eIDAS regulation, whilst enabling growth in digital public services nationally.
