DnB NOR, Norway's Largest Financial Services Group, Implemented VASCO's DIGIPASS to Secure the BankID Scheme

Published 29 July 2009 | By VASCO

DnB NOR, Norway's largest financial services group, implemented VASCO's DIGIPASS to secure the BankID scheme. BankID delivers a public key infrastructure (PKI) solution enabling members from the Norwegian public to identify themselves and sign digital documents from authorities, companies and other organisations on the internet.

To meet BankID's security requirements, DnB NOR deployed VASCO's DIGIPASS GO 3 to its retails customers and DIGIPASS 250 to its corporate customer base. BankID requires no smartcard infrastructure, smartcard readers or any proprietary software on end-users' PCs. The DnB NOR customers' private key is stored in a central electronic vault and it is safeguarded by their DIGIPASS and static password.



DnB NOR needed to implement a security solution for BankID that would meet all BankID's security requirements. Previously, the company worked with different types of systems and security devices for their retail customers. Some customers even had several different devices.



DnB NOR wanted to implement one single authentication method to simplify handling, which would lead to more satisfied customers and would also reduce costs in the long term. A better and clearer logon process would also reduce the number of calls to the bank's call centre.



DnB NOR found in VASCO's DIGIPASS GO 3 the security solution to suit their and their customers' needs. DIGIPASS GO 3 is a simple and user-friendly authentication device, offering a high security level compliant with BankID's security standards.
