A safe and secure digital identification for employees, contractors, officers, and students, to perform their assigned duties more safely, efficiently and flexibly, whilst guarding their privacy.
Passwordless access to systems, locations or tasks
The solution also allows user to have passwordless access to systems, applications, physical locations or performing duties.
It works simple. First you issue an authorized user a Verifiable Credential to provide proof he/she is a certified user. You can assign the user to a group and give the user one or several roles.
The next time the user needs access to a system, location or needs to perform a specific task, the user just has to present this credential.

For systems, applications or devices, our Digital Identity Card solution will use your Identity and Access Management (IAM) system for the authorisations. The system or application displays a QR-code and the user scans that QR-code with their Digital Identity Card. The communication will use OpenID Connect in the background to exchange and verify the user’s credential.
About the Ministry of Justice project
In 2019 we — together with our partners Novatore and Plamo — were selected to build a solution for the Justis department to enable Special Investigators (BOAs) to identify themselves in a privacy-preserving manner and to enable the public to easily verify the authenticity of their identity and the authorization to perform their tasks.
Up to then, special investigating officers only had a physical ID card that they can show to verify their authority.
Physical ID Cards are however, problematic: a physical ID is more sensitive to theft and fraud. It can be used outside of their normal duty hours, others can use the card when it is stolen, or otherwise fraudulently acquired.
Furthermore, the physical ID often has all kinds of person identity data, which is problematic and has led to stalking and other unwanted behavior from third parties.
Our solution digitizes the ID card and make the identity verification process secure, private and easy to use.
