BankID teams with Encap Security on digital ID pilot

Encap Security’s Smart Authentication platform has been selected by Norway’s BankID for a pilot programme to test in-app authentication.

Originally developed to simplify online banking access, BankID is now used by 80% of all adults in Norway to prove their identity to the likes of government departments, and all of the country’s banks and mobile operators. “The launch of BankID in 2004 confirmed Norway’s lead when it came to using technology to improve banking and identity,” says Frode Beckmann Nilsen, Head of Development at BankID Norway. “Now we want to make sure we remain ahead of the curve by creating a new experience – dropping the need to carry around key fobs or copy and paste from another app – while also ensuring the highest security standards. Each bank will provide an app and introduce it to the customers in their own pace. Our purpose with this Encap app has been to provide a useful showroom for our next future proof BankID-experience.”

“BankID is an incredibly popular, highly advanced system that makes signing up and using to multiple services across Norway simple and easy,” comments Thomas Bostrøm Jørgensen, CEO, Encap Security. “With Norwegians increasingly accessing information and transacting on their smart devices BankID needs to evolve to deliver the experience users are demanding today, and the capabilities they will expect tomorrow. By adopting a mobile-first approach BankID will cement Norway’s place as the world leader in digital identity.”
