ETSI is organizing a workshop on Globalisation of Trust Services for North American stakeholders, at the EU Delegation to UN Delegation office in New York.

Overview

This workshop is organized as part of an ETSI study investigating existing PKI-based trust services schemes that operate in different regions of the world, and their possible mutual recognition / global acceptance. In particular, the study aims to identify further steps which could be taken to facilitate cross recognition between EU trust services, based on ETSI standards supporting the eIDAS Regulation (EU) No 910/2014, and trust services from other schemes.

A key element of the study will be an exploratory study of the relationship:

  • ETSI standards related to EU trust services for:
    • Policy requirements, defined in ETSI EN 319 4xx series (e.g. EN 319 411-1/2) and EN 319 5xx series
    • Assessment scheme, defined in ETSI EN 319 403;
    • And trust service status lists, defined in ETSI TS 119 612; and
  • Corresponding information on other PKI-based trust services schemes.

The workshop will particularly consider requirements for electronic signatures from individuals and equivalent seals from corporations in support of secure electronic trade and commerce.

Based on a preliminary questionnaire, this latter information will be collected through desktop research, interviews and other investigations, and put in perspective based on results from prior joint workshops to be held on the same topic at a number of locations around the world.

Timing and remote access

The workshop will start at 1pm, with lunch available from 12 noon, until 5pm.  It is hoped to provide remote access to the workshop.  Please indicate whether you want to attend face to face or online through the registration above.

Objectives of the event

This workshop aims for:

  1. Providing North American stakeholders in PKI based trust services (providers of trust services, applications using trust service and those concerned with legal aspects of trust services) with an opportunity to present their views on the international recognition of national / regional PKI-based trust services schemes in a globalized market of trust services-for secure electronic transactions,
  2. ETSI experts to present the latest European standards for trust services and how these may foster international recognition in a globalized market of trust services-for secure electronic transactions,
  3. Discussions between ETSI experts and stakeholders on how to maximize secure global interoperability supported by trust services in Europe and North America.

Target Audience

Providers of trust services, associations, applications using trust services and those concerned with legal aspects of trust services based in the North American region.

Interested parties are invited to submit an outline of a presentation on their approach to PKI-based trust services and how this might fit in with a globalized environment.
