iDIN - The way of online identification with the trusted login method from your bank

As a result of the ongoing digitization of society, the importance of online identities heightens. Online companies and institutions increasingly require more reliability regarding the identity of online customers and users. Consumers require easy and secure online identification and a one way to log in for all kinds of organizations in this context.

The Dutch banks and the Dutch Payments Association jointly developed the high quality online identification service: iDIN. With iDIN, bank customers can identify (who is the customer?) and authenticate (can the customer prove who he or she is?) themselves by using the existing login method from their own bank, when logging into the websites of companies and institutions. The banks use their existing authentication devices and the previously validated identity of their customers for this new service. Consumers have complete control over their personal data. They authorize each transaction to provide the personal data required to identify themselves to an online organization. The personal data may differ per organization. Of course, with the new General Data Protection Regulation, privacy by design was one of the key concepts iDIN dealt with.
