Foreign Identities in the Austrian E-Government


With the revision of the Austrian E-Government Act [8] in the year 2008, the legal basis for a full integration of foreign persons in the Austrian e-government, has been created. Additionally, the E-Government Equivalence Decree [1] has been published in June 2010. This decree clarifies which foreign electronic identities are considered to be equivalent to Austrian identities and can be electronically registered within the Austrian identity register. Based on this legal framework a concept has been developed which allows non-Austrian citizens to log in to Austrian online administrative procedures using their foreign identity. A solution resting upon this concept has been developed and successfully tested. This solution has become operative in July 2010.
