# About Smart-ID
Smart-ID is a 2-factor authentication scheme developed by SK ID Solutions for the Baltics. It consists of a lightweight web interface that prompts the user for their national identity number and a mobile app that prompts the user for a PIN code.
# Use cases
Smart-ID can be used for:
Digital onboarding: For example, to be able to apply for a loan, the bank may require a user to register and become a customer of this bank. The ID method can be used as a stand alone method or in combination with other services provided by Signicat to verify an identity, like identity paper verification, risk-and-identity data sources and video assurance.
Authentication: When the user has completed the digital onboarding process, Smart-ID can be used for authentication by verifying an existing user’s identity. Smart-ID can be used for authentication, in the same way as it can be used for registering as a new customer.
The authentication will result in a type of response that will depend on the type of authentication protocol used.
# Get started with the integration
Integration with Smart-ID is done similarly to other Signicat's eID methods. This section describes how to get started with setting up Smart-ID.
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
- Register in the Signicat Dashboard (opens new window).
- In the Signicat Dashboard, set up an organisation, an account and a domain.
We recommend you to create a Sandbox account to test our services before implementing them in production.
# Add Smart-ID
Once your Dashboard account is configured, you must add Smart-ID to the list of supported ID methods.
Before you can start integrating, you need to configure Smart-ID access with an onboarding manager. To get help with this, please contact us (opens new window).
To add Smart-ID:
- In the Signicat Dashboard, go to Authentication > ID Methods.
- Click Add new.
- Choose Smart-ID and click Save.
# Certificate information
