Barcelona/MWC – 01.03.2017 - Safelayer is playing an active role in transforming the digital identity system that supports the Latvian national ID card and the cloud signature services deployed by LVRTC. This makes LVRTC Latvia’s first eIDAS-compliant trust service provider. With Safelayer PKI and eIDAS software suites, this transformation has also paved the way for a citizen-wide mobile identity ecosystem based on Safelayer Mobile ID, which has provided a new technological and legal framework to promote and facilitate digital relationships between individuals, corporations and public organizations in Latvia.
