Dutch banks have introduced an e-identity tool for online identification and log in: iDIN.
iDIN stands for “Identificeren en Inloggen” (identification and log in). Consumers can identify themselves and log in with companies and public institutions in the same way, provided they offer iDIN. iDIN was developed by the Dutch Payments Association, ABN Amro, ASN, ING, Rabobank, Regiobank, SNS Bank and Triodos Bank. iDIN therefore has almost 14 million potential users.
For consumers, iDIN is similar to an iDEAL transaction. If a client wishes to identify themselves online with an organisation that supports iDIN, they select iDIN as the identification method and then the bank with which they hold an account. The consumer then logs in via the bank’s log in method. For example, with a TAN code, identifier, Raboscanner, or SNS Digipas. The details the organisation requires from the consumer are displayed on the iDIN screen after logging in. The client gives permission for this information to be shared and this concludes the identification process. Once a customer has set up an iDIN account with an organisation, they can simply log in next time.
Enigma Consulting was closely involved in the development of iDIN and would be delighted to advise you on the options for your organisation.
