Nets’ digital identification services receive highest level of assurance.

Press release

​The Finnish Communications Regulatory Authority (Ficora) has granted Nets the highest level of assurance for its identification services in Finland. Nets is the first broker in Finland to reach this level.

  • Security has a vital role in everything we do at Nets. We are happy to be able to offer identification services up to the highest possible assurance level with the approval from the authorities, says Matti Villikka from Nets.

 

To reach the level of assurance "High", Nets had to meet extremely high security standards, which are accepted by the authorities.

 

Nets' identification platform is ready for the future – and thus our clients too

 

Nets digital identification platform grants access to clients' systems through one sole interface. This allows for simplification of IT-systems and cost savings.

 

  • Finland is moving forward from the old Tupas-identification to more modern and more secure identification methods and protocols. The Nets identification platform enables a smooth transition to these new identification methods with a one-stop principle. Reaching the highest level of assurance is an example of Nets' commitment to e-security and producing reliable services, Matti Villikka continues.

 

When strong identification becomes easier and more accessible, it can be taken into use in more companies and services. This enables for example trusted communication in eCommerce and in signing digital contracts.

 

Nets offers Nordic identification brokerage for all needs, from public sector to e-commerce. The service supports the industry standards like SAML and OIDC.

 

Nets identification platform is based on Nets E-Ident environment, which has been in use in other Nordic countries since 2005.
