The scope of proposed 419 241 part 2 (PP TSCM) covers security requirements to reach compliance with Annex II of Regulation No 910/2014 of the remote (qualified TSP operated) parts of the system, other than those relating to Signature Activation Data (SAD) management and the operation of the Signature Activation Protocol (SAP), assuming use of a cryptographic module conforming to EN 419 221-5. EN 419 241 part 2 will be balloted simultaneously with EN 419241 Part 3 Protection profile for Signature Activation Data management and Signature Activation Protocol(PP-SAD+SAP). These two new parts of EN 419 241, used in conjunction with the protection for PP for Cryptographic Module for Trust Services (EN 419 221-5), will contain security requirements for level 2 (sole control) as specified in TS 419 241 in a formal manner aligned with common criteria. These two new parts of EN 419 241, with EN 419 221-5, will support the certification of a system for remote qualified electronic signature or seal creation devices (remote QSCD) which meet the requirements of EU Regulation No 910/2014: The electronic signature creation data can be reliably protected by the legitimate signatory (sole control) against use by others, where the generation and management of the signature creation data is carried out by a qualified trust service provider on behalf of a signatory.
The scope of proposed 419 241 part 3 (PP-SAD+SAP) covers security requirements to reach compliance with Annex II of Regulation No 910/2014 on the management of the SAD and the operation of the SAP used to provide sole control of the signatory or seal creator for the remote QSCD signing or sealing functions. The proposed parts 2 and 3 are to be independent of specific authentication mechanism and signature activation protocol to allow maximum flexibility with respect to future solutions and to allow supporting several authentication mechanisms. The proposed part 3 is to take into account: a) potential implementations that require dedicated functional components, owned by the signatory or seal creator, which are for the purposes of ensuring sole control, and b) potential implementations that do not require such dedicated functional components but still ensuring sole control of the signatory or seal creator. The proposed part 3 covers requirements up to the interface to the signatory or seal creator needed for authentication and the interface to the signature creation application for selection, checking and display of data to be signed (e. g. a signature creation application as defined in EN 419 111) while requirements on the signature creation application itself are out of scope. It is proposed that part 3 (PP-SAD+SAP) forms the prime reference for server signing that may be certified according to Regulation No 910/2014 including Annex II, and that this part requires components certified according to part 2 (PP TSCM) and EN 419221-5.

This document addresses biometric recognition systems that are used as part of an automated access control system to provide a second and independent authentication factor of the individual using the AACS to access secured areas of critical infrastructure.
This document:
-   specifies requirements for biometric recognition systems to be used as part of an AACS for critical infrastructure,
-   describes a methodology for the evaluation of biometric authentication for AACSs against the specified requirements.
The requirements and test methods address biometric authentication for AACS that: (i) operate in an internal environment constituting part of a larger site, access to which is restricted and controlled by a separate access control system; and (ii) use biometrics as a second authentication factor to a token or proximity card.
This document does not consider access by the general public, e.g. passengers in an airport, or visitors to a hospital.
Products that meet the requirements of this document will comprise (i) a biometric sensor(s) external to the secured area, which reads the biometric characteristics of the user at the point of access; and (ii) a biometric server system performing biometric enrolment, signal processing, storage of biometric references and biometric comparison within a secured area.
This document does not address AACS or AACS portals (turnstiles) but is only concerned with the biometric components which integrate with the AACS. Other standards address requirements and testing of the non-biometric parts of the AACS.

1.1   General
This document specifies security requirements and recommendations for Trustworthy Systems Supporting Server Signing (TW4S) that generate digital signatures.
The TW4S is composed at least of one Server Signing Application (SSA) and one Signature Creation Device (SCDev) or one remote Signature Creation Device.
A remote SCDev is a SCDev extended with remote control provided by a Signature Activation Module (SAM) executed in a tamper protected environment. This module uses the Signature Activation Data (SAD), collected through a Signature Activation Protocol (SAP), in order to guarantee with a high level of confidence that the signing keys are used under sole control of the signer.
The SSA uses a SCDev or a remote SCDev in order to generate, maintain and use the signing keys under the sole control of their authorized signer. Signing key import from CAs is out of scope.
So when the SSA uses a remote SCDev, the authorized signer remotely controls the signing key with a high level of confidence.
A TW4S is intended to deliver to the signer or to some other application, a digital signature created based on the data to be signed.
This standard:
-   provides commonly recognized functional models of TW4S;
-   specifies overall requirements that apply across all of the services identified in the functional model;
-   specifies security requirements for each of the services identified in the TW4S;
-   specifies security requirements for sensitive system components which may be used by the TW4S.
This standard is technology and protocol neutral and focuses on security requirements.
1.2   Outside of the scope
The following aspects are considered outside of the scope of this document:
-   other trusted services that may be used alongside this service such as certificate issuance, signature validation service, time-stamping service and information preservation service;
-   any application or system outside of the TW4S (in particular the signature creation application including the creation of advanced signature formats);
-   signing key and signing certificate import from CAs;
-   the legal interpretation of the form of signature (e.g. electronic signature, electronic seal, qualified or otherwise).
1.3   Audience
This standard specifies security requirements that are intended to be followed by:
-   providers of TW4S systems;
-   Trust Service Providers (TSP) offering a signature creation service.

This Technical Report aims to be the entry point in relation to electronic signatures for any SME that is considering to dematerialize paper-based workflow(s) and seeks a sound legal and technical basis in order to integrate electronic signatures or electronic seals in this process. It is not intended to be a guide for SMEs active in the development of electronic signatures products and services - they should rather rely on the series ETSI EN 319 for building their offer - but it is a guide for SMEs CONSUMING e-Signature products and services.
This document builds on CEN/TR 419040, "Guidelines for citizens", explaining the concept and use of electronic signatures, to further help SMEs to understand the relevance of using e-Signatures within their business processes. It guides SMEs in discovering the level of electronic Signatures which is appropriate for their needs, extends the work to specific use-case scenarios, paying special attention to technologies and solutions, and addresses other typical concrete questions that SMEs need to answer before any making any decisions (such as the question of recognition of their e-Signature by third parties, within their sector, country or even internationally).
Once the decision is taken to deploy electronic signatures or electronic seals in support of their business, SMEs will then typically collaborate with their chosen providers of e electronic signatures or electronic seals products or services, which can be done on the basis of ETSI TR 119 100 "Guidance on the use of standards for signature creation and validation", that helps enterprises fulfil their business requirements. The present document presents the concepts and use of the standards relevant for SMEs developed under the Rationalised Framework to SMEs.

The regulation on electronic identification and trusted eServices (eIDAS regulation) clearly extends the current Electronic Signature Directive from electronic signature towards electronic identification and electronic authentication. These two topics are closely linked to electronic signature and are considered in this context in this document. There are many documents, standards, industrial initiatives and European projects on identification and authentication, but the scope here is limited to electronic signature context, and wider to electronic transactions in the internal market.
The present Technical Report is twofold.
It firstly does a brief analysis of the implementing acts on electronic identities CIR 2015/1501 [29] and CIR 2015/1502 [30] and how this is addressed by the eID interoperability framework [31]. It secondly establishes what areas of existing standards are impacted by the eID framework and what further areas of standardization could assist nations in providing eID services.

This Technical Specification is intended to provide a Full Body Image Format for pattern recognition services and applications requiring the exchange of full body image data. Its typical applications include:
a)   human examination of high resolution full body images;
b)   human verification of identity based on full body images;
c)   computer automated full body identification;
d)   computer automated full body verification.
To enable applications on a wide variety of devices, including devices that have limited data storage, and to improve image recognition accuracy, ISO/IEC 19794 standards are followed regarding not only data format, but also scene constraints (lighting, pose, expression, etc.), photographic properties (positioning, camera focus, etc.), and digital image attributes (image resolution, image size, etc.).
A specific biometric profile for cross-border interoperability is required for full body photographs. Full body photography standardization is required to get good quality database images for identification and verification using video surveillance and other similar system generated images. At the moment, border guards take full body photographs using local practices for enrolment, verification, identification and watch list identification.
ISO 22311:2012 [10] specifies a common output file format that can be extracted from the video-surveillance contents collection systems to perform necessary processing. ISO/IEC 30137 [8] specifies data formats for storing, recording and transmitting biometric information acquired via a video surveillance system. The EN 62676 series [11] defines video surveillance systems for use in security applications.
The purpose of this Technical Specification is to provide expert guidance (i.e. best practices) for the photography of full body, especially when the resulting images are to be used for purposes of identification and verification, either by automated recognition systems or by human viewers.

This Technical Specification primarily focuses on biometric aspects of portable verification and identification systems for law enforcement and border control authorities. The recommendations given here will balance the needs of security, ease of access and data protection.
ISO/IEC has published a series of standards dealing with biometric data coding, interfaces, performance tests as well as compliance tests. It is essential for interoperability that all these standards are applied in European deployments. However, ISO/IEC standards do not consider national or regional characteristics; in particular, they do not consider European Union privacy and data protection regulation as well as accessibility and usability requirements.
This Technical Specification extends the ISO standards by emphasizing specific European needs (for example EU data Protection Directive 95/46/EC and European databases access). The Technical Specification systematically discusses issues to be considered when planning, deploying and using portable identity verification systems and gives recommendations for those types of systems that are or will be in use in Europe.
Communication, infrastructure scalability, and security aspects other than those related to biometrics are not considered. This document also does not consider hardware and security requirements of biometric equipment and does not recommend general identification procedures.

1.1   General
This Technical Specification establishes security requirements for TWSs that can be used by a TSP in order to issue QCs and Non-Qualified Certificates (NQCs) as well as electronic time-stamps in accordance with Dir.1999/93/EC and with [Reg.910/2014/EU].
Security requirements for the Subject Device Provision Service, which includes SCDev/QSCD provision to subjects, are defined in this TS. However, requirements specific to SCDev/QSCD devices, as used by subjects of the TSP, are outside the scope of this TS. These requirements are defined as Common Criteria [CC] Protection Profiles (PP) in the EN 419211 series.
Recommendations for the cryptographic algorithms to be supported by TWSs are provided in ETSI/TS 119 312.
Although this TS is based on the use of public key cryptography, it does not require or define any particular communication protocol or format for electronic signatures, certificates, certificate revocation lists, certificate status information and time-stamp tokens. It only assumes certain types of information to be present in the certificates in accordance with Annex I of Dir.1999/93/EC and of [Reg.910/2014/EU]. Interoperability between TSP systems and subject systems is outside the scope of this document.
The use of TWSs that are already compliant to relevant security requirements of this TS should support TSPs in reducing their burden to establish conformance of their policy to ETSI TS 119 411-1, 119 411-2, and 119 421 (or equivalent ENs to be subsequently published) and in meeting the Annex I and Annex II requirements of Dir.1999/93/EC as well as the requirements from Annex I and Article 24.2 (e) of [Reg.910/2014/EU].
1.2   European Regulation-specific
The main focus of this document is on the requirements in Article 24.2 (e) of [Reg.910/2014/EU] whilst still facilitating the meeting of requirements in Dir.1999/93/EC, Annex II (f). In considering [Reg.910/2014/EU] it is important to take into account the following requirements of particular relevance to TSP trustworthy systems:
a)   Article 24.2 (f) – “use trustworthy systems to store data provided to it, in a verifiable form so that:
(i)   they are publicly available for retrieval only where the consent of the person to whom the data relates has been obtained,
(ii)   only authorised persons can make entries and changes to the stored data,
(iii)   the data can be checked for authenticity”;
b)   Article 24.2 (g) – “take appropriate measures against forgery and theft of data”;
c)   Article 24.2 (h) – “record and keep accessible for an appropriate period of time, including after the activities of the qualified trust service provider have ceased, all relevant information concerning data issued and received by the qualified trust service provider, in particular, for the purpose of providing evidence in legal proceedings and for the purpose of ensuring continuity of the service. Such recording may be done electronically”;
d)   Article 24.2 (j) – “ensure lawful processing of personal data in accordance with Directive 95/46/EC”;
e)   Article 24.2 (k) – “in case of qualified trust service providers issuing qualified certificates, establish and keep updated a certificate database”;
f)   Article 24.3 – “If a qualified trust service provider issuing qualified certificates decides to revoke a certificate, it shall register such revocation in its certificate database and publish the revocation status of the certificate in a timely manner, and in any event within 24 hours after the receipt of the request. The revocation shall become effective immediately upon its publication”;
g)   Article 24.4 – "With regard to paragraph 3, qualified trust service providers issuing qualified certificates shall provide to any relying party information on the validity or revocation status of qualified certificates issued by them.

This Technical Specification primarily focuses on biometric aspects of Automated Border Control (ABC) systems. Drawing on the first European and international ABC deployments, it aims to disseminate best practice experiences with a view to ensure consistent security levels in European ABC deployments. Furthermore, the best practice recommendations given here shall help make border control authorities' processes more efficient, speeding up border clearance, and delivering an improved experience to travellers.
ISO/IEC JTC1/SC 37 has published a series of standards dealing with biometric data coding, interfaces, performance tests as well as compliance tests. In order to promote global interoperability it is essential that all these standards are applied in European deployments. However, these standards do not consider national or regional characteristics; in particular, they do not consider European Union privacy and data protection regulation as well as European accessibility and usability requirements [22]. Thus, this Technical Specification amends the ISO standards with respect to special European conditions and constraints.
The Technical Specification systematically discusses issues to be considered when planning and deploying biometric systems for ABC and gives best practice recommendations for those types of systems that are or will be in use in Europe. The document deals with personal identification including ergonomic aspects that have an impact on the acquisition of biometric data.
Communication, infrastructure scalability and security aspects other than those related to biometrics are not considered. This document also does not consider hardware and security requirements of biometric equipment and does not recommend general border crossing procedures.
The enrolment process, e. g. for electronic passports, is out of scope of this document.

This Technical Specification provides an Interoperability Model, which will enable an eService compliant with technical requirements, to interoperate with different implementations of the European Citizen Card.
This Interoperability model will be developed as follows:
-   starting from the ECC Part 2, Part 3 of the ECC series provides additional technical specifications for a middleware architecture based on ISO/IEC 24727 (all parts); this middleware will provide an API to an eService as per ISO/IEC 24727 3.
-   a set of additional API provides the middleware stack with means to facilitate ECC services.
-   a standard mechanism for the validation of the e-ID credential is stored in the ECC and retrieved by the eService.
In order to support the ECC services over an ISO/IEC 24727 middelware configuration, this part of the standard specifies the following:
-   a set of mandatory requests to be supported by the middleware implementation based on ISO/IEC 24727 (all parts).
-   data set content for interoperability to be personalised in the ECC.
-   three middleware architecture solutions: one based on a stack of combined ISO/IEC 24727 configurations and the other based on Web Service configuration whereas the third one is relying on a SAL Lite component.
-   an Application DiscoveryProfile featuring the guidelines for card-applications to fit in ISO/IEC 24727 framework.

1.1   Scope of CEN/TS 15480-5:2013
The scope of this Technical Specification is to provide a general description of the standard together with an introduction to each part of the ECC standard.
Informative Annex A maps the relationship between the various parts of the ECC standard and other ISO/IEC standards relating to the card platform.
1.2   Scope of the ECC standard
The European Citizen Card (ECC) standard addresses the difficulties presented to citizens when attempting to access various public services using a smart card as an access token. The scope of the ECC standard covers card capabilities and structures specified under the following headings:
- Specific definition of minimum features (for example, card surface print structure).
- Definition of optional features that may be required to provide the desired electronic services.
- Specification of discovery mechanisms to allow supported and in-use card capabilities and features to be identified.
- Besides covering the hardware and software of the card, the ECC standard also addresses interfaces to readers and servers through middleware components.
This simple concept can enable ECC cards to adopt a widely different set of personas, even though a common application may be housed on cards used in different environments and in different ways. Generically, we can consider ECC cards as being classed as one of the following groups, even though the same application may be loaded (alongside others) in each environment. These groupings are:
- eID Verification token;
- Inter-European Union travel document;
- Provider of logical access to e-Government or local administration services or to private sector services by housing personal credentials.
In order to support the above, it is noted that there will be certain minimum requirements upon any card conforming to the ECC, specifically, the European Citizen Card will be at a minimum a smart card with Identification, Authentication and electronic Signature (IAS) service capabilities. The ECC may act as a bridge between different application requirements of an integrated circuit card and in so doing act to reduce the number of different European specifications and standards required.
The ECC will be issued under the responsibility of a European National Public Administration in order to provide a token supporting one of the above usage groupings by housing one or more relevant applications. In addition, there is nothing to stop the ECC being used to support private applications and environments which would therefore allow the ECC to be used in a shared public-private application scenario.
It is apparent that the ECC is intended to offer the card issuer/ service provider with a great deal of flexibility in the services that the ECC provides, the authentication mechanisms supported and the local national specific public policy with an special concern to protect the citizen privacy according to the applicable European legislation.

The main goal of this Technical Specification is to give guidelines to follow during the acquisition process of slap tenprints in order to obtain fingerprints with the best quality possible in acceptable time constraints.
NOTE   Non-cooperative users are out of the scope of this Technical Specification.
When using ten-fingerprint sensors, it is fundamental to know how to use them and how to proceed during the acquisition. This Technical Specification describes how to capture fingerprints correctly by specifying best practices for slap ten-print captures.
This Technical Specification gives guidance on the following topics:
1)   Recommendations on the hardware of the fingerprint sensor and its deployment,
2)   Recommendations on user guidance,
3)   Recommendations on the enrolment process including a sample workflow,
4)   Recommendations for developers and system integrators on application software,
5)   Recommendations on processing, compression and coding of the acquired fingerprint images,
6)   Recommendations on operational issues and data logging,
7)   Recommendations on the evaluation of a solution and its components.
Although this Technical Specification primarily focuses on reaching optimal data quality for enrolment purposes, the recommendations given here are applicable for other purposes. All processes which rely on good quality tenprint slaps can take advantage of the best practices reported here.

This Technical Specification specifies the logical characteristics and security features at the card/system interface for the European Citizen Card.
The European Citizen Card is a smart card with Identification, Authentication and electronic Signature (IAS) services. Therefore:
-   the supported services are specified;
-   the supported data structures as well as the access to these structures are specified;
-   the command set is defined.
This Technical Specification aims to ensure the interoperability at card/system interface in the usage phase.
In order to reach the interoperability objective, IAS services are compliant with EN 14890 Part 1 and Part 2. As the EN documents offer options, this specification fully defines a complete profile.
This Technical Specification also considers ICAO Doc 9303.
This Technical Specification does not mandate the use of a particular technology, and is intended to allow both native and Java card technologies.
This specification encompasses mandatory and optional features. Optional features make up a toolbox of modular options from which issuers can pick up the necessary protocols to fulfil the requirements for use. Mandatory features shall be implemented for a smart card to be compliant with this Technical Specification. Mandatory features required for compliancy to ECC specification are given in Annex C, the optional features are given in Annex D. Two IAS-enabled smart cards issued by two different issuers, and compliant with this Technical Specification but implementing different application profiles out of this Technical Specification, can interoperate with a terminal provided that such a terminal supports both application profiles. Therefore, interoperability requires a specific agreement between issuers/governments in order to determine which cross-border services are to be shared, and consequently, which protocols are to be supported by the terminals in each country.
All the APDU commands described in this Technical Specification are in accordance with ISO/IEC 7816 Part 4 or Part 8. They are fully described here in order to provide the settings adopted by this specification and to prevent any ambiguity in case of several possible interpretations of the standards.
For physical, electrical and transport protocol characteristics, refer to CEN/TS 15480-1.

CEN/TS 15480-4 recommends card issuance and operational procedures including citizens' registration.
CEN/TS 15480-4 gives recommendations with regard to the end-user e.g. with respect to privacy and accessibility aspects.
CEN/TS 15480-4 also identifies a set of standard ECC card profiles (e.g. National ID Card, Health Card, Card issued by a Municipality), that can be used as basis for the specification of new ECC projects.
For each profile, this Technical Specification uses a specified template which
-  selects a subset of technical requirements from CEN/TS 15480-1, FprCEN/TS 15480-2:2011 and CEN/TS 15480-3:2010.
-  considers the operation of the ECC in its particular environment.
The target audience of CEN/TS 15480-4 is the card issuer.

The purpose of this European Standard is to ensure that card-operated devices are accessible and usable by standardising significant components of the user interface.
This European Standard describes principles and guidelines so that people with the widest range of capabilities can use card-based services in any sector. This includes, but is not limited to, purchase of goods and services, leisure, distribution, identification, banking, telecommunications, mass transport, parking, access control. It also provides recommendations for the operational procedures to be followed when users interact with a card-operated device:
- in order to enter a system;
- whilst using a system;
- leaving a system.
In particular, this European Standard will:
- aid the user's interaction with the system through a consistent user interface when entering, using and leaving card-operated devices;
- promote user confidence in card-based systems in general;
- promote efficient use, security and privacy of card-based systems;
- reduce the occurrence and consequences of error when the user enters, uses or leaves the system;
- enable people with different levels of ability and comprehension (e.g. minors, elderly, visually impaired, foreign language, motor impaired, hearing, etc) and different levels of experience (e.g. first-time users) to use card-based systems;
- improve the learnability of new card-based systems through consistency.

This European Standard specifies sets of data presented at an interface, the card sub-system interface, in a structured form as well as the rules for dealing with that data to enable products such as tickets to be written to a Machine Readable Card in a manner which will minimise the amount of data to be held on the card while allowing an authorised party to be able to access and interpret the data easily and efficiently.
This is the basis for practical interoperability and as such, this European Standard forms the foundation of interoperability across systems subject to commercial agreements and interchange of details concerning how this European Standard has been physically interpreted. As part of this capability, the design of the data environment allows for the addition of new sets of data to represent new or modified transport products without compromising the ability of existing terminals to continue to handle all sets of data held on the card, whether or not they are to be interpreted and possibly used.
Associated with the data is the set of processes which applies to the data within the application. The inclusion of process in the standard means that similar data will be treated in a similar way by all external services and terminals leading to true interoperability that can be achieved and maintained through this European Standard. In addition, acknowledgement that the application specifies both data and process also implies that it needs to consider security both at the level of access rights to data and the security of the overall environment in which it operates.

This European Standard defines the data objects to be stored within an integrated circuit(s) card and exchanged in order to enable integrated circuit(s) card accepting terminals to identify specific user interface preferences. The preference information may be used by terminals to configure appropriate methods of communicating with the user during a transaction process.
The European Standard also specifies a mechanism for the retrieval of the user preference information from an integrated circuit(s) card and for the combination of data objects to form particular user profiles, through the assignment of unique tags.
Formats and detailed definitions of single data objects are specified, however, the exact method of storage of data within the integrated circuit(s) card is outside the scope of this European Standard.
This European Standard is applicable to the scenario where the cardholder operates the card accepting equipment (e.g. a cash dispenser, ticket machine, vending machine) and to integrated circuit(s) cards conforming to ISO/IEC 7816-4 and ISO/IEC 7816-6 and personalised to the individual cardholder.
