Tuesday 5 December 2017 | 17:09 CET | News

Swiss canton Schaffhausen has presented a pilot version of the eID+ service during the e-Government Days, reported Inside-IT. The eID product was developed by the start-up Procivis with the participation of the software producer Queo Swiss from Solothurn

The system can be adjusted and integrated with similar platforms in future, such as the planned SwissID. Procivis communicates with various eID providers

The canton Schaffhausen announced the project during the summer and the pilot's presentation is an important milestone in its implementation. The eID+ enables access to various electronic services of the canton. Users will have an application via iOS and Android available. The pilot version of eID+ allows access to e.g. property and taxation services. 

The pilot phase shall last until spring 2018. Until that time, new services will be added, such as the canton-wide recognised digital signature. Another step will be the integration of the ID control for Casino Schaffhausen. In addition, the eID+ application will allow saving documents on a smartphone.
