Tuesday 5 November 2013 09:38 CET | News

Mobile authentication services provider Valimo has signed a cooperation agreement with Iceland’s national certification authority Audkenni, for the delivery of Valimo’s Mobile ID technology.

Valimo’s Mobile ID solution will enable all mobile users in Iceland to use authentication and legally-binding signatures that are essential to securing banking and e-government services.

Audkenni has been issuing Icelanders with certificates embedded in debit cards to access online services, notably in the e-banking and e-government fields. Mobile ID will extend the existing electronic ID infrastructure to citizens, via their mobile phone. Users will also get access to new digital services offered by banks, governments and enterprises.

The Valimo solution enables a SIM-vendor approach in line with the GSMA Mobile Identity Group to use interoperable and federated Mobile ID solutions.

In recent news, Valimo has joined forces with Finnish telecommunications service provider Elisa to enable mobile login and end-user authentication for Taltioni, a health and well-being service.
