TrustID for eGovernment

One trusted digital identity for your citizens

Make your eServices fly and get the benefit you expect. The E-ID is a key infrastructure element on which further digital services like end-to-end digital e-government, e-health, e-education or e-commerce are built – and it is ready today. An important contribution to the digital transformation of Switzerland.

With the evolving legal framework, it is tedious to ensure the digital identity you provide to citizens is certified and secure.

This is where TrustID, CloudTrust’s secure and certified digital identity provider solution, comes into play. Certified in December 2019 it is ready to be issued and used.

With its extensive healthcare and eGovernment experience, ELCA Group will help you make it work.

TrustID: an independant and certified IDP

CloudTrust’s TrustID is built from the ground up with healthcare and eGovernment needs in mind and meets the severe requirements of the Federal Act on the Electronic Patient Record (EPRA, currently the only federal certification for E-ID) as well as of the upcoming Electronic Identity Services Act (EISA) for the protection of digital data and identity.

  • Strong multi-factor authentication: TrustID is a digital identity provider solution with strong but easy to use multi-factor authentication options.
  • Wide distribution: TrustID provides a self-enrolment portal for citizens to ease the creation of their digital identity without the need to go to a physical office.
  • Certified physical and video identification: TrustID includes certified physical and video identification solutions to let you master the required Know Your Customer (KYC) processes.
  • Digital signature: TrustID integrates a certified digital signature to ease the citizen with an all-in-one solution.
  • Simple integration: TrustID is based on open-source standard technology, allowing for simple integration into the client’s ecosystem, and avoiding any vendor lock-in in the future.
  • Cost optimisation: citizens can use their TrustID to access both eHealth and eGov services. (one identity, one fixed annual fee without transaction costs)

One TrustID, many flavours

  • TrustID runs in many flavours that suits your financial and sovereignty needs:
    • as a SaaS solution with a per identity price: no investment needed and predictable operational costs
    • as an “on premises” solution where you can sovereignly emit digital identities (white label) and master your operational costs
    • as a corporate solution with utmost flexibility when eHealth and eGov certifications are not needed
  • One TrustID to cover all your digital identity needs: corporate, eGovernement, eHealth, eCommerce, eLaw.
