Validated identity: On this level Freja eID validates the identity of the user, who then registers with, among other things, a valid ID document and an ID photo. Then our security personnel do an ID check in and issue an e-ID if all checks are approved. We can currently validate user identities with all the approved ID documents in Sweden, and with passports in Norway, Denmark, Finland and the UK.
The information that we gather from the user varies a bit depending on the country. In general, it is first and last name, social security number, date of birth and e-mail address. In Sweden and Norway we also do an address lookup and for some users we also store their mobile numbers, if they registered with it. In UK there are no social security numbers so we do not gather that data from the UK users.
The quality mark Svensk e-legitimation: In Sweden, DIGG – The Swedish Agency for Digital Government, issues a quality mark to e-ID’s that fulfill certain regulatory requirements. Freja eID fulfills these requirements, but in order to reach the highest level of trust – LOA3 – the user, after validating the identity as above, also has to do a physical ID check at one of our 2000 agents around Sweden.
