 As a result of the PSD2 directive the market is going to open up for modern technologies from payment service providers. Consumers will profit from this new kind of variety. 

Let your costumer benefit from the newest identification solution at the market and establish our process in your business today!


Digital Ident is a Startup from Darmstadt that has developed in the context of a research project of the Darmstadt university of applied science/CRISP. The intention was to examine new possibilites of identification that have opened up with the PSD2 directive in the end of 2015. After the completion our team, which is composed of various postgraduates and graduates from different fields of expertise, decided to transfer knowledge from the scientific world into the world of business where new ideas are needed.

Our vision is to make a difference, challenge the current state of the art and help to build a modern and digital world with new technologies.

In October 2018, the Digital Ident Team was awarded the Dörte-Wörner Innovation prize (press article).
