Norrbottens e-nämnd and their 14 municipalities choose Freja eID

Press release


The IT security company Verisec has, through its cooperation with the integration partner Svensk e-identitet, signed an agreement with Norrbottens e-nämnd. As a result, the 14 municipalities that are part of Norrbottens e-nämnd will add Freja eID+ as an identification method for citizens and employees for access to the municipal services.

For citizens and municipal employees in Arjeplog, Arvidsjaur, Luleå, Boden, Gällivare, Haparanda, Jokkmok, Kalix, Kiruna, Pajala, Piteå, Älvsbyn, Överkalix och Övertorneå the e-identification service Freja eID becomes available as an identification method when logging on to the respective municipality’s services.

Freja eID is a mobile e-ID available in three levels of trust. The higher level, Freja eID Plus, corresponds to trust level 3 (LOA3) and has received the quality mark Svensk e-legitimation by the agency for digital government (DIGG). Freja eID+ can thus be used both for private use, for example for citizens who use municipal online services, and as an electronic service ID for municipal employees for access to internal systems. Freja eID is an intuitive eID that can be used for secure identification, smooth login with two-factor authentication and legally binding electronic signatures.

William Blomquist, Key Account Manager Svensk e-identitet comments:
“In early April, Norrbottens e-nämnd took the decision to offer its nearly 200,000 citizens and close to 25,000 employees the opportunity to authenticate oneself with Freja eID+. The reason for this is that they have seen an increased interest in the Swedish eID and that, in the longer term, they will be able to offer employees with Finnish personal identity number the opportunity to use the municipal e-services.”

Johan Henrikson, CEO Verisec comments:
“Secured identities are a fundamental prerequisite for the municipalities to be able to achieve their digitization goals and for the municipality’s welfare services to be able to be maintained and further developed. With Freja eID, the municipalities have access to a mobile e-ID that meets all safety criteria, technical frameworks and regulatory requirements. Freja eID thus enables public players to digitize their operations faster and easier.”
