A smooth transition from NemID to MitID

Higher security with MitID

MitID has replaced Danish NemID as the primary national eID in Denmark. After June 30, 2023, NemID will cease to function and be completely sunset. MitID is more adaptable to future technological requirements and is more secure than NemID. In terms of usage, it will be possible to verify with MitID in the same situations as with NemID.

Frequently asked questions

What is the impact of the switch from NemID to MitID?

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.

How does Criipto support the migration?

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.

What about MitID for business?

MitID for business, "MitID Erhverv", is being rolled out progressively from smaller to larger organizations throughout the first half of 2023. This means that the current NemID for business, "NemID medarrbejdersignatur", will continue to function until MitID for business has been fully introduced by June 30, 2023.

How to manage NemID and MitID coexistence?

Until NemID is fully phased out by June 30, 2023, you will need to support both NemID and MitID.

 

With Criipto you will get a seamless identity migration path as we make it transparent whether users log in with NemID or MitID.
