iDIN is a Dutch eID scheme controlled by the Dutch Payment Association (opens new window)(in Dutch: BVN, Betaalvereniging). It is a collaboration between all major Dutch banks to facilite electronic identity services, leveraging on familiar secure authentication processes of the online banking environments. Everyone that has a personal bank account at one of the issuing banks can use iDIN, without the need of any additional registration.
iDIN enables natural persons who have been checked against the requirements of the Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing (Prevention) Act (Wwft) to provide one or several attributes directly from the bank records to Signicat customers, through a secure channel specifically designed for this purpose. Customers can use iDIN to onboard new users and authenticate recurring users without the need for new passwords or to electronically sign legally binding documents.
Additionally, iDIN can be used in combination with Surepay lookups to enhance the user onboarding process.
