FP7 ORIGINS-img-2

Project FP7 ORIGINS (Recommendations for Trusted Underlying Documents Restoring E-Passport Trust and Leveraging Enhanced Border Security)

The FP7 ORIGINS Project aimed to investigate the requirements for the production and distribution of passport documents within the Member States/ Associated Countries of the European Union. During the ORIGINS Project research, passport application/use processes and passport application documents applied by EU and EU candidate countries were analyzed in detail. Assessment reports were prepared for each country and the common nonconformities identified were detailed through a consolidation study. During the identification of security vulnerabilities and the threats that may arise from these vulnerabilities, the methods we proposed were used. In addition, in order to eliminate security vulnerabilities, technical studies were carried out regarding the biometric choices we have implemented in the Turkish ID Card and the situations identified in the areas of use.

eSENS (Electronic Basic European Network Services) Project

The aim of the eSENS Project, of which TÜBİTAK BİLGEM UEKAE is the country coordinator, is to integrate the outputs of various Pilot A Projects (STORK, epSOS, PEPPOL, eCodex and SPOCS) previously initiated in the field of public services and to consolidate the basic building blocks put forward by these projects. It aims to finalize some of the key systems needed for the digital internal market and integrate these structures in key application areas such as e-procurement, business mobility and e-health. Beyond the existing pilot projects, the project has also opened the door to new application areas.

eCODEX (e-Justice Communication via Online Data Exchange) Project

The Ministry of Justice and TÜBİTAK BİLGEM UEKAE took part in the e-Codex Project, which is being carried out across Europe in the field of e-law. The overall objective of the project, which is funded under the Information and Communication Technologies Policy Support Program (ICT-PSP), one of the components of the Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Program supported by the European Commission and to which Turkey is a party by providing financial support, is to ensure that justice systems are integrated and communicate electronically and to enable mutual transactions between national judicial systems through a common platform and to exchange judicial documents, decisions and information electronically. In addition, the eCodex Project aims to enable horizontal interoperability between the activities of the member states, to establish a secure network for the judiciary, and to provide electronic identity management (e.g. for lawyers, courts, judges).

STORK2.0

Supported under the 2007 ICT PSP Call and building on the experience gained from the STORK Project, the EU's main e-identity project, this project aimed to ensure the convergence of the public and private sectors in an operational framework and infrastructure for identity verification. The project was based on secure storage and sharing of data, and pilots were carried out on "e-learning and academic qualifications", "e-banking", "public services for business" and "e-health". In addition to Turkey, 62 partners from Spain, Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Estonia, France, Greece, Iceland, Italy, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Slovenia, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom took part in the project, which is closely related to the main e-health and e-government projects such as epSOS, PEPPOL, SPOCS and eCODEX, which are being carried out under the ICT PSP in the European Union.
