The consequent application of modern web technologies leads to the highest level of usability within the SkIDentity-System.
Privacy-related aspects naturally play a central role within SkIDentity. An especially privacy-friendly realisation has been achieved by the generation of service-specific pseudonyms and the user-centric identity management using encrypted “Cloud Identities” stored on the system of the user. Furthermore the fulfilment of the legal requirements with respect to privacy has been demonstrated by a formal certification according to the “Trusted Cloud Data Protection-Profile for Cloud Services” (TCDP), which is based on the international privacy standard ISO/IEC 27018 and the strict German data protection law (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz, BDSG).
The SkIDentity-Service can be easily extended in various ways to support additional identity cards, attributes or alternative authentication technologies. The certified “Secure Cloud Infrastructure” can be used to operate your individual application in a highly secure manner. Talk to us and be surprised how easy it is to fulfil your individual requirements with respect to Trusted Cloud Computing and Identity Management based on SkIDentity.
The innovative SkIDentity Service allows to derive cryptographically protected "Cloud Identities" from electronic identity documents and to transmit them to any smartphone where they can be used for pseudonymous authentication or a self-determined identification in the cloud. The authentication technologies used can be configured in a flexible manner and are easily extendable as described in the European Patent EP2439900.
The "Cloud Identities" which have been derived from electronic identity documents can be used with any smartphone in mobile environments. SkIDentity turns the personal mobile phone into the electronic identity card and wallet of the future.
The SkIDentity system conforms to relevant international standards and technical guidelines of the Federal Office for Information Security. The fulfilment of the relevant legal requirements with respect to privacy and data security has been proven by corresponding certification procedures.
Security aspects are of paramount importance for SkIDentity. To ensure the highest level of protection, security-related aspects have been systematically taken into account during the design and implementation of SkIDentity. In addition, a comprehensive security concept was created and the "Secure Cloud Infrastructure (SkIDentity)" has been certified by the German Federal Office for Information Security (Bundesamt für Sicherheit in der Informationstechnik, BSI) under the certification number BSI-IGZ-0250-2016 according to ISO 27001 based on IT Baseline Protection.
By cleverly combining well analyzed open source components, with carefully crafted in-house developments and highly secure operating processes an especially trustworthy system has been created with SkIDentity.
To prove the fulfillment of the highest quality standards, SkIDentity has been certified according to relevant security and privacy standards. In particular, the "Secure Cloud Infrastructure (SkIDentity)" has been certified by the Federal Office for Information Security (Bundesamt für Sicherheit in der Informationstechnik, BSI) under the certificate number BSI-IGZ-0250-2016 according to ISO 27001 based on IT Baseline Protection. The fulfillment of the relevant data protection requirements has been confirmed by the certificate according to the "Trusted Cloud Data Protection-Profile for Cloud Services" (TCDP) issued by the certification body of TÜV Informationstechnik GmbH with registration number TUVIT-5529.16. Furthermore the BSI has certified the "Open eCard App", which is used within SkIDentity, under the certificate number BSI-K-TR-0192-2015 as "eID-Client" and under the certificate number BSI-K-TR-0333-2019 as "eID-Kernel" according to BSI TR-03124 and BSI TR-03105.
