Digital authentication

​Feel secure when using digital services

We see a continuously rise in fraud. This can affect your business’ digital adoption, where your users at the same time request more mobility, while online data sharing is increasing.

This paradigm can be solved with Nets’ Digital Authentication service.

Nets’ eID scheme is flexible, modular and scalable

Our solution is based on long term, in-depth understanding of planning, developing, building and running national secure and stable eID schemes.

We seek to protect the end-user’s privacy by honouring the principles of minimal information disclosure and GDPR requirements.

The solution has a high level of modularity and flexibility architecture that makes it easy for you to implement user-friendly and secure authentication flows.

​Digital Authentication

Use Nets' standalone eID offering Digital Authentication to mitigate fraud. It can be critical that you know your customer and can trust that your customers are who they claim to be. This can be accomplished by using strong customer authentication before giving your customers access to your services.

Nets’ eID solution supports strong customer authentication (SCA) that is PSD2 and eIDAS compliant with 2-factor authentication. From an end-user perspective, the authentication is performed using one or more authenticators such as password, authentication app or a one-time password (OTP) token.

Multiple authenticators can be used to step up to higher level of security. The solution has a flexible and modular architecture, which means that local authenticators can be smoothly and easily added or removed, and you get a solution that is both secure and future oriented.

This provides a flexible way of designing different authentication flows, while still maintaining the necessary security level in accordance to the risk associated with the specific transaction.
Nets can provide an authentication app. You can customize the application to accommodate your needs in terms of design, branding and language.

The optional use of tokens facilitates that end-user groups with special handicaps such as cognitive and/or physical impairment or technically challenged groups who are not confident in using a smartphone can also use the solution.

Do you need to be compliant to the European regulations PSD2 or eIDAS??

Revised Payment Service Directive 2

Banks in Europe must be PSD2 compliant. The key objectives of the PSD2 directive is to create a more integrated European payments market, harmonizing legal framework for consumer protection and the rights by making payments more safe and secure.

The regulation called PSD2 RTS COMMISSION DELEGRATED REGULATION (EU) 2018/389 of 27 November 2017 which is supplementing Directive (EU) 2015/2366 of the European Parliament and of the Council with regards to regulatory technical standards for Strong Customer Authentication and common and secure open standards of communication.

PSD2 seeks to improve consumer protection, make payments safer and more secure, and is a regulatory of technical standards for strong customer authentication and common and secure open standards of communication, including all electronic transactions (i.e., card and bank transfers) initiated by a payer (i.e., consumer).

Nets' eID solution is developed with two separate authentication flows. For the solution to be PSD2 compliant you may not disclose, which of the user credentials is not correct. This security measure challenges the user experience and can be switched off when the authentication flow does not have to be PSD2 compliant.

Electronic identification and trust services

Governments in Europe using services to verify the identity of individuals and businesses online or the authenticity of electronic documents must be eIDAS compliant.

Services should support different levels of assurance, and users identified with two-factor authentication.

egulation is meant to support the use of authentication and signatures across European borders, and national eIDs can be used to log in to a service in other countries. The national eID can be registered in the common pool of national eID, so it is accepted on an equal footing with the rest of the EU.

Accepting common levels of security creates trust across countries, and if an authentication nationally is at the level "high", then the rest of the countries in EU can trust it.
