The Swedish National Courts Administration and the Swedish Research Council join the System of free choice 2017 E-identification and get access to the e-identification service Freja eID

Press release


A further two authorities have joined System of free choice 2017 E-identification. The Swedish Research Council and the National Courts Administration and its users can now gain access to the e-identification service Freja eID+ from Verisec.

Freja eID+, at trust level 3, is Sweden’s only mobile e-ID that has been reviewed and approved by DIGG – the Swedish Agency for Digital Government for the quality mark “Svensk e-legitimation”. In order to be part of the System of free choice 2017 E-identification (Valfrihetssystem 2017 E-legitimering), the e-ID must live up to the requirements of the governmental quality mark, Freja eID+ received this approval on January 17 this year. Public and private actors can rely on e-IDs that have the quality mark “Svensk e-legitimation”, and users can feel confident that it is a secure ID.

An electoral system works so that citizens control which e-ID that is to be used when logging in, and thus which supplier must be paid by the contracting authority for the identity certificate. Newly affiliated The Swedish Research Council (Vetenskapsrådet) is Sweden’s largest state-funded research financier and provides more than SEK 6 billion each year in support of research of the highest scientific quality in all areas of science. The Swedish National Courts Administration (Domstolsverket) is a government authority that is governed by the government and acts as a service organization for the courts in the country. Among other things, they make sure that the business is conducted in an efficient and easily accessible manner for the citizens. Currently, Freja eID+ is the only available e-ID in the System of free choice 2017 E-identification.

Johan Henrikson, CEO Verisec comments:
“The more contracting authorities that sign the 2017 E-identification, the more users will have access to Freja eID Plus – a quality assured e-ID. More users seeking full control over their digital activities, identity and integrity now have access to a secure and intuitive e-ID for today’s and tomorrow’s digital needs.”
