The goal of the SkIDentity project is to build a stable bridge between electronic identity cards (eID) and the existing and emerging cloud computing infrastructures. Based on the results of the project it is possible to provide trusted identities for the cloud and secure complete business processes and value chains. For this purpose the existing components, services and trust infrastructures are integrated into a comprehensive, legally valid and economically viable identity infrastructure for the cloud and tested in broadly effective pilot projects. Special attention is given to the demands of small and medium enterprises and authorities. For example the SkIDentity infrastructure will contain an eID-Broker, which will bundle the necessary eID-Services in a form which is accessible even for very small companies and municipal authorities.
