# About MitID

MitID (opens new window) is a new electronic ID in Denmark, replacing NemID. It is a collaboration between the Danish banks and the Danish public sector. This alliance forms a nationwide solution and provides a secure authentication mechanism for all Danish citizens and residents. MitID can be used for online banking, Digital Post, communication with public authorities, identifying yourself in other digital services and more.

# Key features of MitID

This is an overview of important features in MitID:

  • A common, national identity and authentication solution.
  • Public actors, financial institutions and other private service providers can only use MitID through certified brokers.
  • Secure login supporting all three levels of assurance (LoA) from eIDAS, Low, Substantial and High:
    • Low: Authenticates the user with single-factor authentication, e.g. with password or chip. Low is not available in NemID.
    • Substantial: Authenticates the user with a two-factor authenticator combination, e.g. with the MitID app on a smart phone.
    • High: Authenticates the user with a more advanced two-factor authenticator combination, e.g. the MitID app + chip.
  • Sign documents using MitID.

# Get started with the integration

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

If you need more general information on how to integrate with Signicat using the OpenID Connect (OIDC) or SAML 2.0 protocols, see the Authentication quick start guide.

# Initial preparations

Sandbox account

We recommend you to create a Sandbox account to test our services before implementing them in production.

# Add MitID

Once your Dashboard account is configured, you need to add MitID to the list of supported ID methods.


You can add an account in the sandbox environment without contacting Signicat. However, before you can start integrating in production, you need to configure MitID access with an onboarding manager. To get help with this, please contact us (opens new window).

To add MitID:

  • In the Signicat Dashboard, go to Authentication > ID Methods.
  • Click Add new.
  • Choose MitID and click Save.
