Cooperation between ]init[ and OpenLimit for eID-Service-Providing

eID server solutions for new personal ID card in Germany available for online authentication in internet portals
]init[ AG for digital communication and OpenLimit SignCubes AG are now offering highly secure eID-Services for e-Government and e-Business applications. Both companies have signed an exclusive technology cooperation agreement.

Starting on November 1st, online service providers can use the cost-effective solution to securely and reliably connect to the technical core of the new eID infrastructure, the eID-server, in order to authenticate users who want to access their applications.

Within the scope of the collaboration, OpenLimit provides an eID Server for the BSI certified data processing center of ]init[. Online service providers thus have access to an eID-service that meets the highest data security and data privacy guidelines. As the provider of the eID client software “AusweisApp”, OpenLimit also developed the eID-Server together with the Bundesdruckerei, as part of the tender of the Federal Ministry of the Interior. This technology has been successfully tested in data processing centers since the onset of the field test for the new identity card.

]init[ not only contributes their long-term experience to the cooperation in setting up and operating highly complex and secure IT infrastructures. As a full service provider, the IT specialist based in Berlin will offer the eID-service and will also provide the organizational and the functional consulting pertaining to the eID service, as well as the implementation of the eID function in online applications.
