In collaboration with Adobe and other partners, InfoCert promotes the Cloud Signature Consortium. It is a group of industries and academic organizations committed to build a new standard for cloud-based digital signatures that will support web and mobile applications, complying with the most demanding electronic signature regulations in the world. The goal is to provide a common base of technical specifications to enable solutions’ interoperability in the global market.
This effort has been inspired to match the highest-level requirements of eIDAS (European Union’s Regulation on Identification and Trust Services), but its impact is expected to be more global because demand of digital trusted solutions is going to rise.

InfoCert plays a primary role in CREDENTIAL, a EU funded research project to develop, test and showcase innovative cloud-based services for storing, managing and sharing digital identity information and other highly critical personal data with a proven higher level of security compared to the existing solutions.
The project goal is to keep full control of data and to protect the amount of information, that can be revealed, from fraudulent attacks.
In the past years, Italy participated to the Stork and Stork 2.0 CIP projects, gaining valuable experience in the creation and operation of an eID gateway, or simply PEPS (Pan-European Proxy Service). In 2015 Italy renewed its eID framework, moving from a model purely based on smart-cards to a modern SAML based federation one (SPID), where identity providers can issue various credentials (e.g. based on smartphones or crypto-tokens). While SPID is based on SAML, there are differences that don’t allow a direct interoperability with the eIDAS infrastructure.
That’s why F.I.C.e.P. Project (First Italian Crossborder eIDAS Proxy) was born. The project objective is to develop a customization of an eIDAS node to act as a service provider towards SPID and as an identity provider towards the rest of the EU.
InfoCert operates in several innovative projects dealing about blockchain, especially in the field of distributed (self-sovereign) identity. Particularly, Infocert is one of the blockchain nodes of Sovrin Network, a worldwide private-sector initiative. The Network is under the governance of Sovrin Foundation, an international non-profit organization that was established to govern the world’s first self-sovereign identity (SSI) network.
The Network goal is to leverage blockchain technology to enable full control of identities and the highest level of governance of each individual data.
