GLASS for Government
GLASS will introduce a citizen-centric, eGovernance model for public administration services, which automates the processes and safeguards the integrity of interactions among citizens, businesses and public authorities.
GLASS introduces a new paradigm for evidence and record transfer. The project will design, implement and thoroughly assess a single sign-on Wallet as a Service (WaaS) platform that interconnects distinct distributed applications (dapps) responsible for ID authentication, document sharing, information exchange and transactions validation, in compliance with the Single Digital Gateway (SDG) guidelines, enabling a single point of access to information, without a single point of failure in the services.
GLASS considers the eGovernment Action Plan 2016-2020 and by taking advantage of emerging ICT technologies, such as Peer-to-Peer (P2P) networks, distributed ledgers and deep learning, GLASS will develop and deliver a public, distributed infrastructure, based on the InterPlanetary File System (IPFS14) and a distributed ledger.
The proposed underlying mechanisms makes GLASS interoperable with existing and newly developed centralized applications and systems. By these means, all interactions among citizens, businesses and public authorities become transparent under a trustworthy and secure environment, while clear guidelines are set for citizens’ data ownership.
The goal of GLASS is to make public administrations and public institutions open, efficient and inclusive, providing borderless, digital, personalised and citizen-driven public services for the EU population.
