In addition to TeSLA consortium parners, the project also counts on external partnering collaboration to succeed. On this page, we introduce these associates and the knowledge and technologies they contribute with.


Private Identity as a Service (PIDaaS) is one of the projects of Horizon 2020, the most ambitious program research and innovation launched by the European Union. The aim of the project consists in take advantage of available sensors of smartphones (front camera and microphone) for secure authentication of users through biometric data, preserving their privacy. This solution provides an innovative approach to e-Services (e-Commerce, e-Citizen, and e-Health), in a way giving users strong advantages and market competitiveness in the following aspects:

  1. Convenience: PIN or password is omitted or expressed by voice/face;
  2. Security: users are verified by their biometrics;
  3. Privacy protection: biometric information used for verification is protected.

These merits make PIDaaS solution promising in the current and future markets, because none of existing identity authentication solutions including those biometrics-enabled can perform well in all the three above aspects at the same time, which makes a good market perspective for the PIDaaS solution.

PIDaaS will be available from December, 2016.
