Swedish eIdentification Board

Sweden is currently undergoing some major updates to its eID infrastructure. The new infrastructure "Swedish eID (Svensk e-legitimation)" will move towards a more technology neutral and federated approach, where private issuers of eID and relying parties will be connected through an identity federation provided by the Swedish eIdentification Board. The federation is open to all private issuers of eID fulfilling the requirements set up in the legal framework, which to a large extent relies on an adaptation of international trust frameworks. The infrastructure will allow for different levels of assurance and will use the SAML 2.0 protocol for technical interoperability.
