NemID has become Java-free

 

Updated December 1, 2017

The OpenSign Java applet is withdrawn as of November 30, 2017

Going forward, logon with NemID employee signature as code file and NemID on hardware will not involve Java installed on the user's computer. The reason is, among other things, that Firefox and Chrome browsers no longer support Java.

This has no impact on the NemID JavaScript client, which is used for logon with NemID code card.
 

The OpenSign Java applet must be replaced with the new NemID CodeFile client

As a NemID Service Provider, you must migrate from the old OpenSign Java applet to the new NemID CodeFile client.​

The NemID Service Provider Package is updated with the relevant documentation and code.

​The NemID CodeFile client is deployed in production.

Installation packages with new NemID end-user software, NemID Nøglefilsprogram, are deployed in production.

1:2 General deployment to end-users in production.
- Only to Firefox v52+ and Chrome browser users
New users, getting NemID employee signature as code file and NemID on hardware, do not install Java.
Additionally, when logging on via the CodeFile client, existing users of NemID employee signature as code file and NemID on hardware will be prompted to update to the new NemID software not using Java.

2:2 General deployment to end-users in production.
- Also to Internet Explorer 11 and Firefox v50-51 browser users
(Gradual deployment of NemID Nøglefilsprogram during May 2017)

 The OpenSign Java applet is withdrawn from test environment (PP).
- NemID CodeFile client from codefileclient.pp.danid.dk doesn't allow fallback to OpenSign *)

The OpenSign Java applet is withdrawn from production.
- The OpenSign Java applet cannot be obtained from opensign.danid.dk
- NemID CodeFile client from codefileclient.danid.dk does not allow fallback to OpenSign *)

 *) NOTE: In a transition period, NemID CodeFile client has allowed fallback to the OpenSign Java applet in some special cases if the user's browser still supported Java:
- The user could reject the installation of NemID Nøglefilsprogram to continue using Java
- The browser did not support NemID Nøglefilsprogram (e.g. Firefox v49 or earlier)
 

Migrate to the new NemID CodeFile client – that’s all you need to do

As a NemID Service Provider you must migrate and after that you don’t need to do anything.

In the document End-user experience by migration from OpenSign applet to NemID CodeFile client (v1.3, 2017.01.17) you can read when and how the effect of the migration is experienced by end-users.

Information to end-users is available in Danish: Introduktion til Java-fri NemID og NemID Nøglefilsprogram - FAQ >
 

Important, that you migrate to the new NemID CodeFile as soon as possible

If you don't, users will not be able to log on to your service with NemID employee signature as code file and NemID on hardware. After November 30, 2017 the OpenSign Java applet cannot be obtained from opensign.danid.dk.
 

Migration from the OpenSign Java Applet to the NemID CodeFile Client

In the document Migration from OpenSign Java applet to NemID CodeFile client you can find a more technical description of the change.
 

Test of NemID end-user software and verification of logon without Java plug-in

Everyone with NemID employee signature as code file and NemID on hardware can download installation packages with the NemID end-user software, NemID Nøglefilsprogram, for logon and signing without Java plug-in.

Try the NemID CodeFile client in test environment (PP) and in production

Installation of NemID Nøglefilsprogram (see above) will enable logon without Java plug-in via the new NemID CodeFile client in production as well as in the test environment (PP).
