Due to the rapid increase in digital services, businesses and institutions have an increasing need for certainty regarding the identity of online customers and users. Using iDIN, customers can easily confirm their identity online because they have already provided the necessary proof of identity when opening a bank account.
There are several types of identity service providers:
- As an issuer (consumer bank), you offer your customers the possibility of identifying themselves online with iDIN.
- As an acquirer (corporate bank), you are the contracting party for a merchant and you offer your business customers the option of integrating iDIN on their website. As an identity service provider, you can offer various types of agreements to these organisations and provide the merchant with information regarding the costs and (technical) options to implement iDIN.
- As a Digital Identity Service Provider (DISP), you offer your business customers the option of integrating iDIN on their website. Just as in the case of the Acquirer role, you are the contracting party for a merchant.
To perform the role of an issuer or acquirer, you must obtain a Licence Agreement. To perform the role of a DISP, you must obtain a Certificate Agreement and conclude an iDIN contract with an acquirer.
