|AUTHADA Authentication Library (AAL)
||The AAL contains all necessary functions for a customer to provide the AUTHADA services to their users in the customer’s own app. The AAL is meant to be implemented both in the customer’s app and UI / UX.
|Individual or user
||A natural person that needs to identify him- or herself towards a legal entity (authority, institution, company or the like).
|Customer / Service Provider
||One or more legal entities implementing and using AUTHADA services.
||This term refers to the German ID Card, the electronic residence permit (eAT), and the eID card for citizens of the European Union and the European Economic Area.
|(Other) ID document
||Any other document that can be used for identification but does not contain a German eID. Examples are the German passport, the Dutch identity card or the passport of the United States.
|Card Access Number (CAN)
||Necessary to access the eID data via onsite. The CAN is printed on the right side of the front page of the eID Card. Additionally, the CAN needs to be entered by the user in the ident case, when their PIN has been entered incorrectly twice. The third and last try has to be unlocked with the CAN.
|Personal Identification Number (PIN)
||Secret five- or six-digit number. Necessary for the use of the eID in an online / remote scenario for identification, namely in the “ident” product of AUTHADA. The PIN is not required in the onsite case.
|Qualified Electronic Signature (QES)
||A QES allows for completely digital signing processes. It replaces the need for physical documents to be signed by hand.
||IDA stands for Identifizierungsdiensteanbieter (identification service provider). AUTHADA is certified as IDA and is therefore allowed to acess the German eID in any business use case.
