A new project to promote the safe use of smart devices and the development of secure mobile e-services has been hailed as an opportunity to set an example to the world. The overall aim of Nutikaitse 2017 is to raise security awareness among mobile smart device users, developers and retailers. The project will promote the safe use of mobile smart devices and also aims to ensure that secure software solutions are easily accessible and user-friendly.

The agreement was signed on 5 November 2013 by Certification Centre, the Estonian Information Systems Authority, Swedbank, SEB, TeliaSonera, EMT, Elisa and Tele2. The project co-ordinator is Look@World Foundation.

The goal of the project is to ensure that 70% of mobile smart device owners in Estonia use their devices in a secure way by the end of 2017. With the help of Nutikaitse 2017, at least 300,000 people in Estonia will use the secure Mobile-ID for electronic authentification and digital signatures.
