The irruption of cryptography in the world of telecommunications has meant an explosion of new services. One of the main developments that contributed to this expansion has been the technology of digital identity. The maturity of this technology and its advanced state of implementation has permitted to draw new ways of communication within the society. However, the application of these solutions in particular environments is not an easy task. In order to face these demands, it is fundamental to previously analyze the scope of application, and to carry through a study of the technical, human and organizational requirements that this kind of services needs. This project presents the experience of implementing a digital identity solution in a university environment, namely the Universitat de les Illes Balears.
