Net iD Service

Make sure you update to Net iD Client no later than June 13th 2025 when support and bug fixes stops for Net iD Enterprise.

These are some of your benefits with Net iD Client:

• Entirely re-engineered
• Future-proof technology
• Limits number of installation packages for different purposes
• Virtual channel for TS sessions
• Web-extension for web browsers
• Improved condition and match possibilities
• Auto renew token
• Pre-login enrollment and unlock PIN
• TPM token support

Net iD Client is based on Net iD Enterprise, but is redesigned to better handle future demands and use cases. Some functions are discarded because they are no longer used, and some components have been merged since they basically were doing the same thing.

The migration to Net iD Client should not be any different from previous upgrades to new Net iD Enterprise versions except a small conversion of config files we will help you with. Depending on your integrations with Net iD Enterprise some evaluation is needed to ensure Net iD Client will continue to work as your current Net iD Enterprise setup in your daily work.

Net iD Client compared to Net iD Enterprise:

Net iD Client is the next generation of Net iD Enterprise. Most functionality from Net iD Enterprise is present in Net iD Client, but the new architecture introduces new ways to do some things. The changes are made to simplify for the future, but can be thought of as complicated for those used to do things in a specific way.

The biggest change is the introduction of a single library that handles all components or application interfaces. The new library exports all the interfaces that were available as different libraries earlier, such as PKCS#11, CSP, KSP, MiniDriver, and Plugin.

The configuration has also changed, with focus on that parameters should not be changed by customers. Parameters are available, but the default values should handle most, or all, scenarios. This has been made available by configuration conditions. The introduction of configuration conditions limits the number of needed packages. Conditions were really successful which resulted that it was back-ported to Net iD Enterprise, so some can already have been introduced to the concept. The thought is that when different parameters earlier required separate installation packages, they should now only use a single installation package.
