- About Us
eHerkenning is a standardised login system providing a single digital key for doing business. More than 1.000 governmental and business services provide eHerkenning access. And over 300.000 business accounts are active.
iWelcome is the main broker for eHerkenning services in the Netherlands. Amongst others a variety of Dutch ministries, large municipalities, the Tax Authorities, the Dutch Chamber of Commerce and Insurance companies use iWelcome’s trustworthy eHerkenning services.
At the heart of eHerkenning lies the partnership between the Dutch Ministry of the Interior and Kingdom Relations and several accredited suppliers that form part of a network. They work according to a mutual agreements system "on electronic access services".
As one of the founding partners of eHerkenning, iWelcome is certified by the Dutch Government since 2010. Regularly, iWelcome's services are audited and re-certified. Being part of the core suppliers, iWelcome is at the forefront of innovations in eID and eIDAS.
eIDAS is the EU-standard for electronic identification, which is implemented via domestic eID schemes in Europe. In The Netherlands, the domestic scheme for eIDAS transactions is called eHerkenning.
Via iWelcomes eHerkenning services organisations provide a generic login to their online services, not only for Dutch organisations with eHerkenning accounts, but even for EU-citizens that comply to the eIDAS standard.
Large organisations providing eHerkenning-login to their portal, usually include and serve many departmental services in the backend, facing daily changes and strict OTAP processes.
iWelcome does not just deliver eHerkenning login. We deliver to the needs of these large organisations. Reports on the usage and SLA per service for internal reporting and invoicing is just one example. Also self-service capabilities for configuring connections and certificate management is part of iWelcome's eHerkenning offering.
On behalf of the Dutch government,
Currently, these adaptors are available for ASP.NET-platform and Java environments.
eIDAS lets European citizens access services in other member states by logging in with their familiar national eIDs. iWelcome's eHerkenning connects public- and private service providers to eIDAS. European residents can be identified with a defined level of assurance.
iWelcome's eHerkenning-login for businesses can be offered in combination with DigiD-login for citizens. A one-stop-shop for the main identities in The Netherlands.
In Business to business (B2B) and Business to Government (B2G) users are mandated for certain activities and certain parts of their organisations. Also users may act on behalf of private persons. Mandates and delegation are part of iWelcome's eHerkenning service.
iWelcome uniquely provides monthly insight in the usage and SLA per connected service. This is especially important for organisations with a large number of online-services providing eHerkenning login. Based on this information costs can be allocated.
iWelcome's eHerkenning can be extended with a portal where you can monitor and manage the service yourself. No need to involve iWelcome specialists.
You want to set up a connection? You want to monitor the expiry date of certificates and and replace these when needed? Easy!
