Signicat expands eID coverage to the Netherlands with iDIN and DigiD

06 February 2017  |  3680 views  |  0 Source: Signicat

Signicat, the first and largest identity assurance provider in the world, now supports two new digital identities in the Netherlands, iDIN and DigiD, increasing its coverage of eIDs across Europe.

These two digital identities give Dutch citizens easy, secure access to any financial or municipal service they use.

iDIN, created by a partnership between Betaalvereniging Nederland (the Dutch Payments Association) and the government, is currently being piloted by a number of banks as well as Signicat. The identity scheme is designed to repeat the success of the Nordic BankID system by providing digital identities with multiple use cases.

Instead of providing identity credentials when signing up to a new service, customers can be authenticated through their bank - a process that is convenient for the customer and more secure for the service provider. The service is set to go live in early 2017, and existing Signicat customers have testing access now.

DigiD is the government-issued digital identity which can be accepted by any Dutch organisation with the authority to use a customer’s social security number, or BSN. While iDIN has been created to provide a digital ID for financial services, DigiD is used for many public services, such as healthcare, legal aid, and utilities. As well as proving your identity when corresponding with the government DigiD can also authorise a third-parties to act on your behalf. As with iDIN, DigiD is available to all existing Signicat customers now.

“Our aim is to be able to establish trust between customers and business with a single click, and the integration of these two new digital IDs in the Netherlands mean we can continue to realise this aim across Europe,” said Marco Gouw, Sales Director Signicat Netherlands. “The integration of iDIN and DigiID into our platform means businesses can quickly and securely onboard Dutch customers in minutes - and have trust in their identities - without any need for excessive paperwork.”
