United ID Services is a non-profit service organization with the mission to simplify and provide trusted online identities, free of charge.
Our goal is to educate users on secure Internet identification and authentication, and facilitate global implementation of open identity standards, enabling one single and secure online identity to an endless number of e-services.
We believe that easy movement across the Internet, without having your identity compromised, is a basic human right, will empower democracy and unfold the potential of the next generation Internet.
In order to accelerate adaptation of trusted identities, we provide a free and independent online identity service, including additional security beyond username/passwords. This service is today used by higher educations, research organizations and governments around the world.
We are funded by the Internet Society, .SE Foundation (non-profit hosting the Swedish Internet domain) and SUNET (Swedish University Network) voluntary work, and philanthropic investors.
To be long term self-sustaining, and continue to grow as a non-profit “trust-anchor” for the global open identity community, we are developing more identity and authentication services.
