Deutsche Bank backs pan-industry online identity platform

08 May 2017  |  12271 views  |  1 Deutsche bank Head office Flag banner 1

Deutsche Bank is teaming up with a host of major firms to set up a platform for online registration, e-identity and data services.

The bank and partners Allianz, Axel Springer, Daimler and Postbank, have inked a declaration of intent that will see them work on a standard access procedure for online activities, with customers using a "master key" for registration and identification across industries.

The platform is also designed to be open and compatible with projects managed by authorities under the German government and federal states, even at the local government level.

In the future, Deutsche Bank suggests that the platform could be used for digital payment and financial services.

With German federal ministries welcoming the initiative, the partners are now looking to bring in firms from other industries, including aviation, e-commerce, retailers and telcos. Talks are already underway with Deutsche Telekom.

Christian Sewing, deputy CEO, Deutsche Bank, says: "We Europeans must at last fully play out our strengths in digitalisation. The time is ripe for a platform initiative of this kind. It will increase legal certainty for clients and boost the European digital economy’s growth."

Manfred Knof, CEO, Allianz Deutschland, adds: "As insurers, it has always been crucial for us to be able to handle our clients’ data in a trustworthy manner. This initiative gives us the opportunity to apply the highest level of security standards to the digital financial services that we offer our clients."

Identity management starts at the country level. This is great news for Germany. A lot of work has already been done in this area.
