Electronic identity (eID) cards are deployed in an increasing number of countries. These cards often provide digital authentication and digital signature capabilities, but have at the same time serious privacy shortcomings. We can expect that ordering and issuing tickets for events (e.g. soccer matches) will be increasingly done using eID cards, hence, severely threatening the user’s privacy. This paper proposes two alternative ticketing systems that are using the eID card in a bootstrap procedure, but still are providing a high degree of privacy to the user.
