EBSI Wallet Conformance Testing

Welcome to the EBSI Wallet Conformance Testing page! You have the opportunity to enhance the capabilities of your wallet by turning it into an EBSI-conformant wallet. By doing so, you will become part of a dynamic and inclusive pan-European wallet ecosystem.

With the EBSI Conformance Seal, your wallet will be recognized as a trusted and reliable tool for digital transactions across Europe.

What are the benefits?

step 1

Level up

Getting a conformant stamp from EBSI allows Wallet Providers to showcase their commitment to European standards, which can increase credibility and trust among customers and partners.

step 2

Boots cross-border services

EBSI wallet conformance testing ensures that wallet providers are capable of being interoperable with EBSI services, thereby boosting the potential for seamless cross-border services for end users.

step 3

Gain visibility across Europe

Wallet Conformance Testing helps increase visibility across Europe by certifying that your wallet is in line with the standards and requirements set by EBSI, allowing for seamless integration with European services and boosting the wallet's reputation and credibility.

Conformance with all EBSI services

EBSI provides a conformance testing service for third-party wallet providers to verify their application's compatibility with EBSI's core services API. This service allows providers to self-assess their wallet and ensure its conformity with EBSI standards, so that it is ready for use by everyone. Conformance tests will contain tests for Issuers, Verifiers and Holders.

To learn more about how conformant wallets work in real-world scenarios, you can check out our EBSI Success Stories. These stories showcase the practical implementation of conformant wallets through EBSI use cases.

Holder wallet illustration

Holder Wallet

A holder wallet is a type of digital wallet that allows the user to securely store, manage, and use their Verifiable Credentials. The Holder Wallet module checks the wallet's ability to handle credential requests, authentication and presentation to verifiers on demand.

Accredit and Authorise

The Accredit and Authorise module checks a wallet's compliance with the issuer's trust model and the accuracy of information stored in the Trusted Registries. Access management and credentials issuance are tested for conformance.

Decentralised identifiers (DIDs) are a new type of identifier that enable verifiable, decentralised digital identity. A DID refers to any subject (e.g., a person, organisation, thing, data model, abstract entity, etc.) as determined by the controller of the DID. In contrast to typical, federated identifiers, DIDs have been designed so that they may be decoupled from centralised registries, identity providers, and certificate authorities.

As we build the European regulatory framework, in the transition from paper to digital, a key question arises: how to share official documents, called ‘evidences’ or ‘credentials’ in a way that can be trusted?

Blockchain changes the traditional pattern of data sharing due to its distributed nature, as opposed to a centralised information exchange protocol. Blockchain can act as a point of truth that supports the verification of the entities involved in the transaction and the authenticity of information without requiring real-time access to the source of the information.

EBSI's objective is leveraging on blockchain to accelerate the creation of cross-border services for public administrations and their ecosystems to verify information and to make services more trustworthy.

The European Blockchain Services Infrastructure (EBSI) is a network of distributed blockchain nodes across Europe. It is the first EU-wide blockchain infrastructure, driven by the public sector, in full respect of European values and regulations.

The EBSI nodes composing the network support multiple protocols (pluggable protocols) and a full set of APIs. The main protocol supported at the moment is Hyperledger Besu (with IBFT 2.0 consensus).
