    Thanks for covering our event! Pls note correct spealling of my name

    For me,
    It was an extremely interactive session which demonstrated demand and hunger for such knowledge exchange amongst experts in ICT4D.

    What was very obvious from all the great speakers we had is that:
    1) eID is not only about citizen registration but to allow access to socio-economic services, provided not only by governments but also by private sector, non-profit information sources or NGOs.
    2) Need for governments and private sector providers to work together to deliver the eID system. This is a very difficult project to keep alive and updated, keeping up with population trends and changes in citizens’ civil registry status without rigorous best practice processes and systems.
    3) For all above reasons , there is a need one national registry for all citizens. Not one registry per ministry/agency. If the latter is the case then a registry consolidation strategy is needed looking at interoperability, standards, processes and security amongst the different registry agencies.
    4) when eID is provided (case of Estnonia, Belgium, etc.) the private serive providers will be able to promote/reach out with more services tailored to the customers, anything from banking to community center usage, train/bus riding to more developing country services such as access to social services, subsidies, health clinics, vaccines, etc

    Thanks for the comment, sorry for misspelling your name.

    It is a shame that no one is adding the need for civil society to have its own Web of Trust separate from government systems. There are two different protocols: S/MIME and OpenPGP, as discussed here, http://www.mozilla-enigmail.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=67
