Age verification

With a national federative authentication and validation infrastructure in place, all online users who are present in national databases will be age verified before entering sites or apps that offer peer-to-peer user communicating options, that process personal user data or offer adult content, products or services.

The user interface for the age verification process is a simple login into the national online authentication and verification infrastructure. The login may be branded under a governmental organisation or under commercial trusted third party organisations such as telco’s or banks.

If the age verification process shows that an individual online user’s age is under a certain, topic-specific value (for personal data protection this is default under 16 but can for individual countries also be under 13) a certificate is added to the device used by the user verifying that the user is underaged. The device can be a smartphone, a laptop or PC, a tablet or any other device with which the user goes online. If the age verification process shows that an individual online user’s age is over a certain, topic-specific value a certificate is added to the device used by the user verifying that the user is not under-aged. If the user would remove the certificate or refuse to store the certificate on their device, the login will reappear the next time the users want to enter sites or apps that offer peer-to-peer user communicating options or that process personal user data or offer adult content, products or services.
