Seamless migration from NemID to MitID
MitID - the new Danish e-ID
MitID is the next generation e-ID, a successor to NemID. From the 31st of October 2022, MitID will be the only personal e-ID option in Denmark. MitID requires you to integrate via a certified MitID broker such as Criipto. With MitID integrated into your application or website, you are also able to use App Switch in browsers. Read more about App Switch for MitID and how it can improve your login process.
NemID - the old Danish e-ID
NemID has been in use for more than 10 years and will be sunset entirely. NemID for personal use will be unsupported from end of October 2022.
For all current NemID service providers, the switch to MitID brings a new login experience for your users, and you will have to change your UI flow to accomodate MitID. On the technical integration side, you are required to integrate with a MitID broker such as Criipto, implying a switch to the OpenID Connect federated authentication protocol.
When the first users migrate from NemID to MitID in the late 2021, you will need to support both NemID and MitID for a period of at least 6 months until NemID is fully phased out.
With Criipto you will get a seamless identity migration path as we make it transparent whether users log in with NemID or MitID.
By switching your NemID integration to Criipto now, you will be technically set for for MitID as well. All that is required is to send a different value of the parameter specifying the kind of authentication chosen. How to integrate is described in our getting started documentation.
While MitID completely replaces NemID for personal use by the summer of 2022, MitID for business will not be launched until the fall of 2022. This means that the current NemID for business, "medarrbejdersignatur" in Danish, will continue to function until MitID for business has been fully introduce, probably some time in 2023.
