Feb2021 - E-ID: What is at stake?



Summary of the debate:

The main lines of argumentation of this very vivid and constructive debate could be summarizezd as follows:
  • Pro: An E-ID law is needed to protect citizens from the domination of big Internet corporations, and even if the technical implementation is not perfect it can be improved. There is no more time to waste!
  • Contra: Centralizing the power of creating and managing E-IDs creates single point of failures whose effect upon attacks or abuse by private companies can be really disasterous. We should only approve a law that promotes privacy-friendly and secure solutions by construction!
