Background

EU Login is the European Commission's central user authentication service. EU Login limits access to websites, applications or services to authenticated users thanks to a sign on based on email address, password and if required additional authentication factors (2FA - including biometrics). 

All users can register to EU Login at their own initiative (Create EU Login for Extranet wikis).

Rules

Commission services must use EU Login when they need an authentication service.

The rule is from the European Commission Digital Strategy which aim is to increase the Commission’s efficiency, effectiveness and transparency through the adoption of solutions to provide EU-wide, borderless, digital public services to EU citizens, while ensuring an appropriate level of security.
