You can use one of several authentication methods to protect against unauthorized access to your documents. When authentication is used with a transaction, the signer must first identify him- or herself with the chosen method before they are allowed to view and sign the document.
When you select one of the identification methods, a text field appears in the upper right corner so that you can enter the required information.
If no authentication method is selected, anyone with the link to the signing portal will be able to access the transaction documents and sign it.
NemID Private with CPR number is used when a person needs to legitimise his identity or sign on his own behalf. When the signing portal is accessed, the signer must first verify him/herself with his/her NemID. Then the name associated with that NemID will appear in the event log of the document. If you want to ensure that a specific person opens the document, you can fill in their CPR-number in a small field in the top right corner. Then only the NemID associated with that CPR number will be able to open the document.
You need to know the recipient's CPR-number to use this part of the identification.
Danish NemID Private without CPR number
NemID Private without CPR number can be used in case you as the sender do not know the CPR number of the signer. The signer still signs with NemID as usual. The difference is that we cannot confirm in the signing portal that it is the signatory's own NemID that is being used to sign. However, we have the possibility to find out which NemID has been used if there is a discrepancy later on.
NemID employee signature
NemID employee signature can be used when an employee needs to authenticate and sign documents on behalf of a company.
A NemID employee signature allows employees to identify themselves on behalf of their company. It contains the employee's name and the company's CVR and RID number. The NemID employee signature is protected by a personal code.
You need to know the company's CVR number to use this identification method.
If the signer has switched to the new MitID, he/she can use it to identify him/herself when signing. If MitID is selected, it will be possible to enter a CPR-number. When the signer needs to identify themselves, their CPR-number must match the one entered. This ensures, in the same way as with NemID Private, that you have the "right" signer.
