The Swedish eIdentification Board has awarded Cybercom Group the contract for so-called ‘Federation services for Swedish e-identification’. The contract runs for three years, with an option for a further two years.
“We are very proud to be given the opportunity to build the security foundation that is essential for the entire e-society. This contract further strengthens our leading position in the field of federations – a cornerstone of identity solutions for a connected world, where security should not lock things away but instead create opportunities for collaboration,” says Björn Lindeberg, Business Manager, Cybercom.
Cybercom will develop secure infrastructure for Swedish e-governance. The assignment consists of development in 2013, and hosting and application management during 2014-2016. The value of this contract is estimated to approximately SEK 30 million. Cybercom has worked with IT security for many years with several of Sweden’s leading companies and organisations, as it adds further.
“…We are assisting the eIdentification Board with a new platform for electronic identities, intended to allow citizens to use their digital identity (their eID, security token or similar) in a simpler and more flexible way. The technology also means that organisations can rely on each other’s logins so that we as users are given the opportunity of so-called single sign-on for various government agencies, as well as integration of cloud services in a secure way,” says Bo Strömqvist, Head of Sales, Cybercom Group
