Understanding the Role of Hardware Security Modules in Digital Identities for Humans

On 23 July 2014, the European Union established eIDAS (electronic IDentification, Authentication and trust Services) that regulates electronic transactions, electronic signatures, involved bodies, and their embedded processes. Having taken effect on 1 July 2016, eIDAS provides a safe way for users to perform actions such as electronic funds transfers or transactions with government agencies.
