STORK is a federated security initiative from the EU. The acronym is ridiculously forced, being short for “Secure idenTity acrOss boRders linKed.” Less than auspicious.
It is supposed to secure interoperability between electronic identity (eID) schemes in different countries. With a few extra bit thrown in on top. Interoperability sounds very nice. Yes, lets have some of that. I applaud the effort.
However, I am dubious about the stuff “under the hood”. Can it be made to work as promised, and even if it can, do we want it or need it ?
I’ll examine this STORK thing more closely and report back here.
