ID-Ideal research project – showcase for secure digital identities

Have you ever wondered how many digital identities you have? Probably quite a few. On average, each person has around 70 digital identities. Each individual identity is linked to data that we have released. But which data is stored where? How can I remove my data later? Keeping track of things and managing data that has been released requires quite a bit of work.

The project

In the ID-Ideal research project, AUTHADA is working together with 14 other consortium partners to set up an ecosystem of secure digital identities. The aim of this project is to support citizens in regaining the power to make decisions about the use of their data. We are working together on an uncomplicated, data protection-compliant, user-friendly and trustworthy solution.  

In order to be able to collect and implement the requirements of all the stakeholders involved, the research team is considering various use cases together with the experts from the consortium. These come from various sectors such as city, industry, energy, trade, mobility and campus. 


»Our goal is to give citizens more personal authority when it comes to their data. They should be able to decide for themselves which data they make available to which provider and they should be able to manage their data themselves at any time – in a simple and uncomplicated way.«

Lisa-Marie Rösch, Project Manager

The idea

The idea behind the solution is to build an ID ecosystem with so-called “wallets”. All data and players are verified in it, so that there can be an efficient exchange of data. In addition to the ID card, driver’s license and health insurance card, other evidence such as certificates or documents can be stored in the wallet. From all of these forms of proof results the one digital identity that replaces all other previous identities. This means that it should be possible to carry out all processes easily across all sectors, for example registering and re-registering with the city, opening a bank account, age verification or showing tickets. The wallet owner can see at any time which data he has made available to whom and can amend this decision. There is also the option of using the wallet to issue a qualified electronic signature (QES), which can be used to sign contracts from the comfort of your sofa.

»The idea is that in the future, everyone will have a wallet on their smartphone – a virtual wallet in which they can store various digital documents.«
