The concepts of electronic identity (eID) and electronic signature (e-Signature) are crucial enablers of e-government solutions in Europe. The present heterogeneity of national e-government infrastructures in Europe raises serious challenges. The country-specific nature of infrastructure components prevents an easy reuse of country-specific components in other countries. We propose a solution, that facilitates the deployment and integration or third-party components into existing national e-government infrastructures. We demonstrate the feasibility of our proposal by means of a concrete implementation. Evaluation results obtained are promising and show the proposed solution's potential to leverage the adoption of eID and e-Signature solutions in Europe.
