e-IDentify yourself! – OeNPAY Electronic Identity Challenge

OeNPAY lauched the electronic identity (e-ID) challenge „e-IDentify yourself!“ on 20 June 2022. Until 31 August 2022, the innovation-initiative of the OeNB is crowdsourcing ideas for brilliant, new e-ID applications that transcend the range of existing solutions and can be used in all walks of life.

e-IDentify yourself! – OeNPAY Electronic Identity Challenge: Submit your ideas by 31 August 2022.

A number of private and public sector organizations provide different types of e-ID solutions in Austria, but none of them is widely used for a broad range of applications. As a result, several national and international public and private sector e-ID solutions co-exist in the market. Many of them are neither interoperable nor do they meet uniform legal and security standards. Austria does not have a comprehensive cross-sector solution that individuals and businesses can rely on for different types of applications. By launching the challenge „e-IDentify yourself!“, OeNPAY aims to help shape the future of e-ID applications in Austria.

e-IDs offer numerous benefits for individuals, businesses and public institutions. Taking full advantage of them requires a national e-ID infrastructure that meets cross-industry interoperability standards. The goal is an e-ID solution that serves as an interface to both private sector services and e-government services. OeNPAY aims to lay the foundation for such a comprehensive e-ID infrastructure in Austria in cooperation with all stakeholders.

This is why OeNPAY has organized the “e-IDentify yourself! – OeNPAY Electronic Identity Challenge”: to crowdsource ideas for brilliant, new e-ID applications that transcend the range of existing solutions and can be used in all walks of life. The most promising ideas will be analyzed and developed further – and possibly even implemented with partner organizations. The OeNPAY idea contest aims to contribute to developing a comprehensive, interoperable e-ID infrastructure and to enhancing Austria’s appeal as a business location in cooperation with all stakeholders.
