Lookups for authentication

1283 views January 30, 2020 0

Lookup services for authentication are used to provide additional information about a user (B2C) or an organization (B2B). Lookup services are typically integrated with one or more services provided by Signicat to enhance them. In addition, it is possible to call some of these services directly.

Lookup services are a means for Signicat to provide customers with additional information by calling external registries. Lookup services can be used standalone or to obtain and verify information about the user whose personal information is being verified. For example, this can be done by looking up a postal address or a national identification number on a government registry.

Signicat provides access to the lookup services listed in the table below for authentication. Some of them are subject to restrictions, which means that access to the API documentation will be given when the contract between the customer and Signicat is signed. The documentation will then be accessible through the Customer Portal.
