Smart-ID utilizes the user's smart device as the tool for user authentication and electronic signing. Smart-ID can be used simply on a modern smartphone or a tablet, no special SIM-cards nor card-readers are needed. 

Smart-ID was one of the fastest eID rollouts in the world: three Baltic countries, two months and more than 100 000 end-users! 


Why to add Smart-ID to your e-service?

Smart-ID can be used to authenticate user in different e-services (e.g. internet bank) or to provide electronic signatures. 

Smart-ID is now recognized as QSCD (Qualified Signature Creation Device). This is the highest level of recognition in the EU and now all Smart-ID users can digitally sign documents on Qualified Electronic Signature (QES) level that must be recognized by every EU member state. Read more here.

SK is building Smart-ID service as an international scheme, therefore, eID issued in one country can be used in another as well. So, in the future, Smart-ID could be the user’s key to many e-services across the EU.

Smart-ID is based on known and proven principles of public key cryptography. Compared to other possible user authentication technologies, such as PIN calculators or one-time-use PIN codes sent over the SMS channel, the PKI and digital signature approach gives the following benefits: high level of security, non-repudiation of operations, strong authentication and signatures recognized all over the EU. Smart-ID solution uses advanced cryptographic methods to protect the user's private key. - for end-users, this equals their secret PIN codes. Users' identity is not stored in the Smart-ID app, it is protected and safely kept by the service provider.

Smart-ID uses two factor authentication, it can be used in combination of what the user has – smart device – and what the user knows – PIN codes.
