Governikus ID Mercury (formerly Governikus Autent ID Connect) provides central server components you need for modern identity management.

The product acts as a multi-eID solution for implementing user-friendly, yet secure registration and login tokens at different trust levels.

Governikus ID Mercury bundles identity providers and authentication options without you having to connect them individually to your infrastructure. ID Mercury relies on open standards (Open ID Connect and SAML). For the use of online ID cards and eIDAS-notified eID systems, the product solution accesses Governikus ID Panstar.

With ID Mercury you are able to provide your users with different options and a wide range of electronic identities for registrations and logins.

Governikus ID Mercury also offers solution modules for implementing service accounts and corporate accounts (the so-called user accounts), enables the bundling of authorization certificates (only possible in public administration) and ensures interoperability with other user accounts.

The product solution is continuously developed and maintained as part of the Governikus application of the IT Planning Council.
