Year 2012 at SK ID Solutions
In 2012, SK widened its operations in Lithuania by hiring a permanent representative and by mediating strong local eID providers. This way we could offer our clients all authentication and signing solutions used in Lithuania through one system.
People continued to actively change their ID-cards and the growth of eID users was stable. By the end of 2012, the number of eID users reached 547,715. At the end of the year, the amount of issued Mobile-ID also grew – thanks to EMT’s campaign and free joining, Mobile-ID gained 3,000 new users per month. By the end of 2012, there were almost 35,000 active Mobile-ID users.
Base software developed in cooperation with the state was for the first time included in AppStore’s, as well as Microsoft’s automatic updates. We also updated DigiDoc software and documentation and renewed the web www.id.ee aimed at end users and developers. Thanks to changes in job management, we stabilized our service and upgraded response capacity.
In November, SK’s annual conference took place on the topic “eID Developments and Security”.
At the end of 2012, we launched a new solution for Estonia and neighbouring markets together with Trüb Baltic AS and AS SEB Pank – SEB corporate identity (ID). Corporate ID can be used for opening doors, logging in to work stations and giving legally valid digital signatures. We hope that this solution will be implemented in other organizations, too.
Regarding international cooperation, SK started actions in STORK 2.0 and Future ID projects.
In December 2012, issuing the 100 millionth digital signature was celebrated with a web campaign.
