Karlstad Municipality live with Freja eID+

Press release

The technical integration is now complete, and Karlstad’s more than 93,000 inhabitants can identify themselves and log in with Freja eID+ to access the self-service and e-services that the municipality offers.

Freja eID+ makes it easy for municipalities to meet SAMBI’s requirements for Svensk e-legitimation at trust level 3 and the School Federation’s requirements for 2FA. Since Freja eID+ also supports many technical standards, such as SAML2, it can be used in many more systems than other established eID’s. Karlstad Municipality’s e-service platform has been integrated with the e-identification service through Verisec’s strategic partner CGI.

Johan Henrikson, CEO Verisec comments:
”Karlstad is the latest of the 36 Swedish municipalities currently offering its residents Freja eID+ as a login method when using municipal e-services, and several other will follow. More and more municipalities want to be able to offer the only mobile eID in Sweden that has been approved for the governmental quality mark Svensk e-legitimation as identification method.”
