Well, it seems I was a little optimistic about relaying the Ministers’ Statement from the e-Gov conference: they did draft one at the conclusion of the Ministerial meeting, but it is going to be published along with a broader release from the EU Council of Ministers (Telecomms subset). I’ve been given the target date for that release, so stay tuned and I’ll let you know as soon as I hear more.
In the meantime, I’ll also try and find a moment to blog some of the eID and Identity Assurance news I picked up at the conference, where there was lots to see and hear. Very interesting stories from Austria, Sweden, Belgium, Slovenia and elsewhere.
There is plenty going on in this domain. No-one was shying away from the current economic and political turbulence, indeed most of the people I spoke to felt that a robust, viable and privacy-respecting approach to eID, Identity Assurance was going to be a vital part of e-Government strategies during the challenging period ahead of us. As I say, stay tuned…
