# About Freja eID

Freja eID is an electronic identity created by Verisec AB, a Swedish IT security company.

# Key features

  • Supports PIN and biometrics on both iOS and Android devices.
  • Supports authentication-based signing in the Freja eID app.
  • Allows users to monitor their digital activities on https://minasidor.frejaeid.com (opens new window).
  • Supports multiple identities per user.

# The Freja eID app

At the core of the Freja eID solution is the Freja eID app, which is available for iOS and Android. The user downloads the app and completes the registration on their own. The process is described on the Freja eID website (opens new window).

The app supports both authentication and authentication-based signing and can be used for three different levels of assurance.

# Product types and level of assurance

# Freja eID basic

  • Level of assurance: 1 (no eIDAS assurance).
  • Registration is done through the user’s email address.
  • Authentication is done through the user’s email address and a PIN or biometric method.
  • The result contains only the email address.

# Freja eID extended

  • Level of assurance: 2 (eIDAS low).
  • Both Norwegian and Swedish end-users are supported.
  • After registering for the basic level, the user must verify their identity by taking a picture of their identity card and providing some additional information.
  • Authentication is done by providing the user’s national identification number or an email address, followed by a PIN or biometric method.
  • The result depends on the configuration and the requested attributes. It will at least contain the user’s national identification number or their email. Additionally, it may also contain any of the following: first and last name, date of birth, national identification number and country code and email address.

# Freja eID+

  • Level of assurance: 3 (eIDAS substantial/high).
  • After registering for the extended level, the user must register some additional details and visit one of Freja’s agents in person to verify their identity.
  • Authentication is done by providing the user’s national identification number or their email, plus a PIN or biometric method.
  • The result contains the national identification number or the email (whichever was used for authentication) and, optionally, the user’s first and last name, date of birth, national identification number and country code and email address.

# Authentication example

  1. The user logs in with email or national identification number. A push notification is then sent to the user’s device. The user clicks on the notification, which opens the Freja eID app.
  2. The user must confirm that they want to log in to the service (in this example, Signicat is the service).
  3. Upon confirmation, the user is asked to identify with a PIN or biometric method.

# Get started with the integration

Integration with Freja is done similarly to other Signicat's eID methods. This section describes how to get started with setting up Freja.

For more general information on how to integrate with Signicat using the OpenID Connect (OIDC) or SAML 2.0 protocols, see the Quick start guide.

# Initial preparations
