Digital passport and signature

SuisseID enables people to identify themselves uniquely online and to add a valid electronic signature to contracts. It is therefore a digital passport and signature in one.

In your online services you reliably identify customers, partners and employees via SuisseID. And processes which require a handwritten signature are handled entirely electronically – not only in your online services but also internally in your company.

A new generation of digital identity – SwissID – has been available since spring 2017. For more information on the new SwissID. The new SwissID is not replacing SuisseID, launched in 2010, which will remain available as a product. Nothing will change for SuisseID users – they can continue using their SuisseID as before. Both services complement each other’s functionality; however, in the medium term, SuisseID will be incorporated into SwissID.
