Temporary encryption keys
The eSafeID solution is based on the exchange of temporary encryption keys when you log on to Business eBanking. The key is stored temporarily in your PC’s memory and exists only as long as the session lasts. When the session ends, the key expires, and your next logon will generate a new key.
Technically, the digital signature element of the eSafeID security solution is based on temporary keys. The digital signature can be used only if you can access these keys. Therefore, it cannot be forged or broken. Note that only the digital signature is transmitted over the Internet. When you log on to Business eBanking, eSafeID checks your personal password and uses it to protect the temporary key. When you want to sign electronically, for instance when making a transfer between accounts, enter your personal password to accept that eSafeID generates a digital signature by means of the temporary encryption key. Your personal password is linked to your user ID.
When files and other types of data are exchanged between the customer and Danske Bank in Business eBanking, the temporary keys are used for encryption and signing.
The following rules apply to the use of eSafeID
Your user ID, password and eSafeID device are strictly personal and may therefore only be used by you alone in Business eBanking. This means that you must not share these elements with anyone else. Note that the password must not be written down, unless you take reasonable steps to disguise it nor should you store it together with the eSafeID device. If you suspect that somebody else knows your personal password, or if you have lost your eSafeID device, you must order a new temporary PIN and/or eSafeID device.
