Online identification now also possible using your ID card

In order to be able to provide legally valid electronic signatures or access your SwissSign MPKI as an RA operator, you first need to have your identity verified. To this end, SwissSign offers free identity verification – either on site or online via the SwissID App. You can now also complete the 24/7 online identification process using your ID card*. The only other thing you need is your mobile phone.
