Smart Registration Service: Identify now with German identity card

The Smart Registration Service (SRS) adds another option for online identification and registration for the qualified electronic signature according to the EU regulation eIDAS. With the SRS eID method, people can conveniently identify themselves from anywhere and at any time using their German identity card with online ID function and a mobile app via their own smartphone.

The SRS eID identification method is available immediately via the interface for our Smart Registration Service customers. The service is also possible via our identification page with a voucher. Vouchers can be purchased via our partners.

3 easy steps: Download app, Scan ID, Enter Pin – ready

If a customer wants to identify himself for the qualified electronic signature, he receives a link to the start page from one of our signature partners. There, the customer will be asked to download the mobile app of the identification partner onto his smartphone. In the app, the customer scans his German ID card using the activated NFC function of his mobile phone and enters his ID card pin to confirm the identification.

After successful identification, the person receives an SMS to accept the terms of use of the signing service. Afterwards, the customer can electronically sign documents in the applications of our partners as often as desired without having to identify himself again.
