Signicat partner up with Verisec to offer Freja eID across Europe.

Press release

Verisec, the company behind Freja eID, and Signicat, a leader in trusted digital identity, today announced a digital identity partnership using the Freja electronic ID (eID). As part of the deal Signicat will now offer Freja eID as a signing and authentication method—enabling retail, financial, and other organisations to use Freja eID to on-board and engage customers.

Freja eID is a digital identity with two levels of trust; the easily accessible basic Freja eID, and the more secure and trusted Freja eID+, which requires additional identity vetting. Freja eID+ is used for secure transactions across the private and public sector and is the first Swedish mobile eID approved by the Swedish E-identification Board, granting it the Svensk e-legitimation (Swedish Electronic Identity) quality mark.

Freja eID is designed with the possibility to sign documents in accordance with the EU’s cross-border digital identity standard (eIDAS). It also makes it possible for those with limited access to electronic identity schemes—such as newly arrived migrants—to use Freja eID at the basic level.

Signicat has added Freja eID support into the Signicat Digital Identity Platform and will resell Freja eID as part of the commercial arrangement. Through the Signicat platform, its customers will have access to Freja eID users through a common interface.

Gunnar Nordseth, CEO Signicat, comments:
“Signicat is pleased to be working with Verisec and to add support for Freja eID and Freja eID+ to the Signicat Digital Identity Platform. By supporting Freja eID we give our customers a new digital identity method. This method can be used in combination with all those methods we already support across Europe. Signicat fully supports Freja eID for authentication, customer on-boarding, and to digitally sign documents.”

Johan Henrikson, CEO Verisec, comments:
“Signicat, being an established digital identity service provider (DISP) in Europe, represents a new and important partnership for Freja eID, supporting its use across the region. For many major players within banking, finance, insurance and eCommerce, Signicat is the preferred provider of electronic identity and signature solutions.”
