Personal identification with an ID-card

There are two ways to realize personal identification with an ID-card in your e-service: use the certificate authentication built into the browser (TLS client certificate authentication or TLS-CCA) or the new online authentication and signing solution with an ID-card, Web eID.

We recommend that you prefer the Web eID solution for personal identification with an ID-card in e-services, as it makes the use of an ID-card in a web browser more reliable, more user-friendly, and solves several problems encountered with the TLS-CCA solution.

We recommend using the TLS-CCA solution in e-services with strict security requirements, such as e-services where state secrets are stored. You can read more about the security of the TLS-CCA and Web eID solution in the security analysis prepared by Cybernetica AS.
