E-ID to simplify digital life

In its message, the Federal Council keeps the segregation of roles between state and private providers in the law on electronic identification services. To do so, he strengthens data protection and the role of the federal government.

The electronic identity shall provide more security and more user-friendliness, the Federal Council hopes. Users of such an E-ID should be able to prove that they are a particular person in online shopping or e-government services - with a single log-in.
