Goal

The goal of eID Connect is developing a new and secure solution for identity-as-a-service, which combines a high level of security with usability. By merging established standards in an novel way it reaches a new level of identity management:

  • Single Sign-On with OpenID: User friendliness by requiring only a single login for several web services.

  • Secure authentication with security tokens: Instead of using weak logins caused by insecure passwords a secure alternative can be chosen.

  • Verified data with the German ID card: Integration of the ID card allows web services to request the validity of the user's personal data.
