Biometrics is the only way to binding a trusted identity with a natural person. However, how to achieve eIDAS Level of Assurance (LoA) HIGH for persons’ identity authentication using biometrics is not one of the things the stakeholders in the market have common understanding, let alone a consensus, due to the diversity in laws and their interpretation, technical security and privacy risk, market major players’ technical roadmap, trust models, and usability in varied application scenarios. This project aims at improving the mutual understanding and possibly a consensus among the stakeholders in the ways biometrics can be adopted for identity authentication meeting the eIDAS LoA HIGH,(e.g IDPorten) through a series of surveys and discussions. Based on this improved common understanding, a general guideline for creating a Norwegian biometric solution meeting eIDAS LoA HIGH will be generated and used to evaluate a set of market solutions, including the Biofy’s privacy-preserving biometric authentication (PPBA) solution for their market potential.
