I thought you would find this report interesting. It explores, among other things, how different entities participating in an identity transaction may be classified under the Privacy Directive and how the Directive would apply to them.

Hi Tom,

Another follow-up on your earlier request:

We've just released a research report which I hope may be of interest to you and others on this list. It's available at http://www.gini-sa.eu/images/stories/2011.11.06_GINI_D3.1_Legal%20Provisions%20for%20Deploying%20INDI%20Services_FINAL.pdf

This report does NOT provide an in-depth analysis of instruments that specifically regulate IdM processes. However, it does distill some specific requirements for IdM services on the basis of the more "generic" EU Directives (e.g., data protection, eSig), so I hope it might nevertheless be useful to you.

In our next report we plan to outline recommendations for future policy initiatives at the EU level. In this document we're also taking the "identity trust framework angle", building heavily upon your work and that of the task force (with appropriate references, of course). This document will in all probability be finalized by the end of this year.

Any and all feedback much appreciated.

Kind regards,
