Your Unipass Identity is an electronic form of identification that lets you prove who you are when
you log on to the online services of Unipass Identity enabled financial service companies -
including product provider websites and / or extranet portal sites. It works by registering some
personal and security information, that only you will know, and issuing you with at least one
credential that you can use to prove who you are (e.g., Unipass digital certificate and / or Unipass
Username / Passphrase).
Just as the requirements for a driver's license vary depending on the type of vehicle you want to
drive, the requirements for obtaining a Unipass Identity will vary depending on what you want to
use it for. The credentials (or forms of identification) that you are allowed to hold to prove your
Unipass Identity are determined by your organisation type and individual role.
Currently, the easiest and most widely used way to prove who you are is to use a Unipass digital
certificate, which is a small file in your internet browser that contains your verified identity details.
