First initiatives to be addressed by the Federation
1- Participate in the processing of the draft eIDAS Regulation on which the European Commission is working. To this end, a proposal for modifications will be sent to all members of the Federation and new contributions will be requested from each member.
2- The French certifier has recently revoked the SSCD certification of several pieces of equipment. In view of this situation, discussions have been initiated with manufacturers who have certified devices in order to obtain preferential prices and conditions for members of the Federation. We will continue these negotiations and just mention that, logically, each member is free to use or not the agreements reached.
3- Analyze the practices being carried out by Google and Microsoft in relation to SSL secure server certificates. In particular, the unilateral suspension carried out by these manufacturers to suspend the procedures initiated and to avoid the official accreditations of the European Commission.
