Järfälla municipality chooses the e-identification service Freja eID

Press release

The IT security company Verisec, in collaboration with the integration partner Tieto, has signed an agreement with Järfälla municipality, who will thereby add Freja eID as an identification method to the municipality’s e-services for citizens and employees

Järfälla municipality entered into an agreement with Tieto Sweden AB for application and system operation already in early 2017. The upgraded IT support drives the municipality’s digitization work forward. Now, by agreement, Järfälla municipality has added the e-identification service Freja eID as an identification method in their systems.

Freja eID is a mobile e-ID available in three trust levels. The higher level, Freja eID Plus, corresponds to trust level 3 (LOA3) and has been awarded the governmental quality mark “Svensk e-legitimation by DIGG – the Swedish Agency for Digital Government. Freja eID is thus the only mobile e-ID that fulfils all requirements for both private use for citizens and for e-service IDs for public employees.

Johan Henrikson, CEO Verisec comments:
“Municipalities have a great welfare responsibility in Sweden, both in terms of activities such as school and care, and for information. The great opportunities for digitization for efficiency enhancements primarily provide the opportunity for higher quality in the care and in the municipality’s other services, especially from the user’s perspective. With Freja eID, the users and their identity and integrity become a central part of the municipality’s digitization. And this is done through a mobile e-ID that meets all the safety criteria, technical frameworks and regulatory requirements. ”
