We established a partnership with LuxTrust, the leading Trust Service Provider from Luxembourg, to provide remote-identification services for enabling delivery of eIDAS-qualified digital identities and electronic signatures to remote end-users.
As an established Trust Services Provider delivering qualified certificates & trust services, LuxTrust’s enrolment services have traditionally been based on physical face-to-face identification of users, as per applicable regulations. With the entry into force of the new eIDAS European regulation in July 2016, opportunity has now been opened to deliver trust services based on remote identification equivalent to physical face-to-face. By selecting IDnow’s video identification, LuxTrust will now be able to identify real persons anywhere in the world online, without a physical presence on site, while maintaining the high-end “qualified” status of its trust services, in particular for seamlessly delivering eIDAS-qualified electronic signature services, i.e. interoperable and non-repudiable electronic signatures which carry legal value fully equivalent to handwritten signature.
“The addition of IDnow’s video identification to LuxTrust’s service-portfolio is a cornerstone within LuxTrust’s international development. The robustness of IDnow’s solution, combined with LuxTrust’s processes as certified trusted third-party, significantly broadens the geographic reach of LuxTrust’s services which can now be delivered to anyone, anywhere, in full compliance to strictest quality standards and regulations. This is a significant advantage for better serving customers whose digital applications address also end-users spread over several countries. We are also excited by the perspective of leveraging this joined remote-identification capability, for providing reliable shared remote-identification services to any company in Luxembourg and beyond”, says Pascal Rogiest, CEO of LuxTrust.
