An electronic identification ("eID") is a digital solution for proof of identity of citizens or organizations, for example in view to access benefits or services provided by government authorities, banks or other companies, for mobile payments, etc. Apart from online authentication and login, many electronic identity services also give users the option to sign electronic documents with a digital signature.

Electronic identification is directly connected to the person using it. Since most eID programs are proprietary, backdoors can be installed in these programs to spy on the user. This page lists eID distributed as free software to protect the users from backdoors.
