Information about levels of security
You can use electronic ID from MinID, BankID, BankID on mobile, Buypass or Commfides to log in to various public agencies. It is the service owner that determines which level of security their service requires - a medium-high level of security or the highest level of security. This is determined on the basis of what services are being offered and the consequences an unfortunate incident would have for the user and the agency.
If you logged in using MinID, but want to log in to a service that requires a higher level of security, you must log in again with e-ID from BankID, Buypass or Commfides.
Medium-high level of security (level 3)
MinID is an electronic ID that provides a medium-high level of security. It uses a two-factor security solution, and consists of the national identity number and personal password, together with something the user has. In the case of MinID these are single-use codes sent via SMS or PIN codes from a code letter that has been sent to you.
Highest level of security (level 4)
BankID, BankID on mobile, Buypass and Commfides supply electronic ID with the highest level of security. As with MinID, these are two-factor solutions, in addition the e-ID is handed over in a meeting with the person after their identity has been established, to avoid the BankID code generator, Buypass smartcard or Commfides USB stick ending up in the wrong hands.
With level 4 you gain access to health information among other things. As mentioned above, if you are already logged in with MinID but want to log in to a service that requires a higher level of security, you must log in again with e-ID from BankID, BankID on mobile, Buypass or Commfides.
