About Nexus Digital Identities and Signatures

Digital identification and signatures are used to fulfil requirements for the confidentiality, traceability, accuracy, and availability of information distributed via digital media.

Digital identities and signatures also ensure that the right users have access to the right information, and that unauthorised users are denied access.

Demands on security levels for access control vary and can be solved using different technologies. But if access control is to be combined with traceability in the form of digital signatures, then Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) is the technology that meets all requirements.

PKI is a method used for digital IDs and signatures. It is based on a pair of keys, one private and one public, used for digital identification, signing and encryption.

Nexus participated in pilot projects that formed the base of digital identification solutions used by the Swedish National Tax Board (Riksskatteverket), the Swedish National Social Insurance Board (Riksforsakringsverket), and the Bank ID Service.

Nexus is one of the leading companies in this field in Europe.
