Customer checklist for eIDAS regulation now available

AWS is pleased to announce the publication of a checklist to help customers align with the requirements of the European Union’s electronic identification, authentication, and trust services (eIDAS) regulation regarding the use of electronic identities and trust services. The eIDAS regulation covers electronic identification and trust services for electronic transactions in the European single market.

This checklist is intended as a reference and supporting document to help institutions align with the requirements of eIDAS and the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI). Where applicable, under the AWS Shared Responsibility Model, this checklist provides supporting details and references in relation to AWS to assist institutions when adopting eIDAS and ETSI for their workloads on AWS services.

For the controls that AWS is fully or partially responsible for, the checklist compares the eIDAS and ETSI requirements to the following:

This checklist is valid until the current eIDAS EU regulation 910/2014, published July 23rd, 2014, ceases to be in force. The checklist is available upon request.
