In this article, Planet Biometrics reports the union of Significat and new German digital identity card, Neue Personalausweis (nPA)

This milestone for German digital identity marks Significat’s venture as the first private sector company to be certified in the country as an Identification Service Provider, which allows phones, tablets, laptops, and other devices to easily share data with other NFC (near-field communication) equipped devices.

“Practically speaking, this means a consumer can hold their card up to an NFC-enabled device, such as a smartphone or card reader, to digitally onboard where this service is offered.”

Significat is the second service provider in the country, with the first being the public Bundesdruckerei. The Planet Biometrics team report this integration is anticipated to improve the quality of digital identity services in Germany.

The flexibility of Signicat’s Digital Identity Platform can be adapted and integrated to meet the individual requirements of customers from a wide range of industries—including a secure digital onboarding process, identity verification services and regulatory compliance solutions
