Integration with Signicat is a relatively simple process. Realization of the source code for authentication or signing services is straightforward and requires no eID-specific competence on the customer side. The integration is done over open, industry standard and platform-neutral protocols such as OIDC or SAML and Web Services.
However, in a normal integration there are several agreements that must be established, as well as preparation of the infrastructure between the customer, Signicat and eID suppliers. Some of these tasks will take some time. Our recommendation is that the customer plans the integration project thoroughly, and allocates sufficient time for these tasks.
