Digital identity initiative by German industry

I think this one has been underreported extremely: a cross-industry alliance by German industry giants including Axel Springer, Lufthansa, Daimler, Deutsche Telekom, Allianz and more to create a digital identity system that complies with the upcoming EU GDPR regulation. The first product will be a unified Login ID, I imagine very much like a Facebook login, and will probably be followed by more ID/data management functions. This is clearly a shot at the Google/FB duopoly. Maybe the last one.
