The xID Service is currently in 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-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 from BankID dagen 2017 for further information on the xID Service
Integration by merchants
The xID Service is available for merchants as an IDP-option in the OpenID Connect Provider from BankID Norge.
See availability and access for the OIDC Provider in its xID pilot configuration for instructions on how to register at merchant application for the xID Service.
End user experience
The following set demo applications are available to experience the xID service from an end user perspective. Full source code for these examples is available at GitHub.
|Online bank||News portal||Web shop||Admin console|
|Description||Demonstrates how an end user can be enrolled on the xID service via a normal visit to his online bank. xID enrollment happens in conjunction with a normal BankID login. The immediate benefit for the user is that xID is used to remember the username (fødselsnummer or mobilnr/fødselsdato) at the next login to the online bank, thus saving the end user for the first ordinary BankID dialogue.||Demonstrates how an end user that is already enrolled for the xID service can get tailored content at login to a news portal. At the first login to the news portal the end user needs to accept that xID is used by the news portal.||Demonstrates how an end user that is already enrolled for the xID service can get directly to check-out without the tedious proces to register his name and contact address for shipment. All required information is automatially provided by xID, assuming that the end user accepts use of xID for the web shop.||Simple admin page that allows an already enrolled xID user to remove himself from the xID demonstrator.|
Please use your own personal BankID or BankID on Mobile for the preview environment.
For the pre-prod environment specific test BankIDs must been used. Such test BankIDs can be order as a self-service via the RA-light certificate tool.
