xID provides merchants with identification of end-users via device detection at a basic level-of-assurance (LoALoA2) corresponding to LoA2.
The xID Service is currently in proof-of-concept preview status for evaluation purposes and shall not be used for commercial applications.
The xID Service is supplementary to BankID and is based on previous use of BankID from the end-user device. Hence, end-user users need to be users of BankID in order to get access to the xID Service. Merchants may on the other hand use the xID Service without using the BankID Service. The service (optionally) includes step-up to BankID if the end-user cannot be determined via device detection.
See the following presentation for further information on the xID Service
