DigiDocService will be replaced by the new Mobile-ID REST API
All new e-services that wish to enable their customers to use Mobile-ID for authentication and signing will have to integrate their e-service or application with Mobile-ID’s REST API service.
For the moment, the change will only affect new customers joining the Mobile-ID service who, as of June 2019, are only able to integrate using Mobile-ID’s REST API since SK ID Solutions is no longer supporting integrating DigiDocService (DDS).
Those e-services that are currently using DigiDocService for signing or validating digital signatures will have the following options available:
- Signature Gateway (SiGa) for digital signing;
- Signature Validation (SiVa) service for validating digital signatures.
The Mobile-ID REST API, which enables customers to add Mobile-ID authentication and signing support to their e-services, is simpler than the previously used DigiDocService, based on the microservices architecture, and its functionality is better concentrated.
