The BankID service now supports QR codes. This is the most recent step for further enhancement of the security in Mobile BankID. By scanning a QR code with the BankID app, the user can confirm the proximity between e.g. a computer and a mobile phone.
In practice this means that the security is increased when authenticating or signing with a Mobile BankID for a service presented on a different channel e.g. a PC.
On 20 June 2018, Finansiell ID-Teknik BID AB with BankID joined the “Valfrihetssystem 2018 E-legitimering” of the Swedish E-identification Board. This means that the provision of e-identification through BankID now is secured in the public sector’s digital services. Authorities and municipalities can now easily submit a notification of interest and join the “Valfrihetssystem 2018 E-legitimering”, thus gaining access to BankID.
May 29 2018 the board of Finansiell ID-Teknik decided to apply for joining BankID to “Valfrihetssystem 2018 E-legitimering”.
The banks have delivered the service of BankID to the public sector during the last 15 years. The agreement of today, “eID 2016 Övergångstjänst” will expire by the end of 2018.
The application will soon be submitted by Finansiell ID-teknik BID AB and the service of BankID will be included in the “Valfrihetssystem 2018 E-legitimering” by the end of 2018 at the latest.
