SK ID Solutions
SK ID Solutions (SK) is an Estonian qualified trusted services provider. SK provides international e-identity solutions, including a popular mobile solution for the Baltics called Smart-ID with almost 3 million users and 60 million monthly transactions. SK ID Solutions caters to nearly 1000 organisations. SK was founded in 2001 and owned by Swedbank, SEB Bank and Telia Eesti.
Smart-ID has millions of onboardings in a year and a lot of these require office visits due to legal compliance requirements. Smart-ID is evaluated as a “high” Level of Assurance identity scheme and includes qualified certificates for signatures.
This means that the issuance of Smart-ID must be against validated physical presence or essentially something that is “equal to it”. SK was looking for a fully automated remote identification solution to make the solution scalable and compliant with rigid auditing and supervision requirements from eIDAS regulation.
How ReadID helped
SK ID Solutions added NFC-based identity document verification with ReadID, liveness detection and facial recognition for onboarding to Smart-ID. SK uses ReadID SaaS, integrating the ReadID SDKs in their Smart-ID app.
“Smart-ID with ReadID has proven conformance to qualified certificates by TÜV and was approved by Estonian Information System Authority early 2020”
