Six Swedish municipalities choose Freja eID

Press release

IT security company Verisec concludes agreements with six Swedish municipalities through their cooperation organization ITSAM. The municipalities will add the mobile e-ID Freja eID as identification method for citizens, school students and local employees.

ITSAM works with support and operation of the IT function within the six-member municipalities; Boxholm, Kinda, Vimmerby, Ydre, Åtvidaberg and Ödeshög. Integration to Freja eID takes place via the Nexus HAG authentication platform. Today, Nexus HAG is used in the six municipalities for login to intranet, school staff log in to their operating systems and even school students log in via the system.

So far, ITSAM allows log in with password on most services behind HAG. ITSAM’s vision is to secure this so that more logins are made with a safer authentication method. Therefore, ITSAM will soon provide Freja eID as a method of login.

Johan Henrikson, CEO Verisec comments:
” Digitization of society is a strong driving force that leads to new behaviours and changes in expectations and demands from the municipality’s employees, residents and entrepreneurs. Identity becomes a key issue where user requirements for smooth and secure logon and, in particular, integrity drive the use of e-ID:s. Freja eID with the governmental quality mark “Svensk e-legitimation” will be an attractive choice for ITSAM users.”
