Pilot DigiD Idensys expansion will start in January




The first public pilot DigiD expansion Idensys going in January. The pilot was supposed to start this year, but it failed. With the pilot go up to 30,000 people log into twenty companies and governments.

Idensys, which was first called eID, can start as supplier Digidentity first company authorized to provide a system for authentication via Idensys. That approval was needed to start the pilot. It is unknown at what companies and governments can log in to the people with the test. It is also unclear how people can apply.

The results of the test should be known middle of next year, after which the decision is made as to how Idensys will continue to be used. For the new login system the government works with companies. Log can be done in various ways.

Idensys must be an extension of term DigiD. The intention is that the long-standing eHerkenning is included in Idensys and that people finally can log in multiple ways on Idensys to authenticate themselves. This happens at different levels of security.

Companies and institutions need through Idensys certainly know who they are dealing with. On the other hand they should not receive more data than is necessary. According to the explanation of administrator Logius get an online liquor store for example only the message that someone over 18, but the date of birth not see the webstore. From the technology include SURFnet, Microsoft and KPN involved Idensys.

DigiD would probably be just one of the ways to login in the new Idensys-system. “Idensys is no log means, such as DigiD, but a set of agreements which log resources must comply. They go agreements on security, reliability and protection of personal data. Different login methods to be brought under Idensys. Both log-in methods of government, such as DigiD, as businesses. ”

Users can choose according to Groeneveld when logging into a Idensys display their login agent, similar as you choose a bank with IDEAL. “Then they log on in the usual way in which belongs to the login method. The advantage is that they thereby can log in to both services from the government and private sector, provided it is login using a sufficiently high confidence level.”
