eHerkenning is a standardised login system which enables organisations to make their services accessible online and securely to companies, civil servants and consumers. Users log in to a web service using their eHerkenning token, which allows them to manage their affairs online. eHerkenning will check whether the person who is utilising a service is actually who he says he is, but also whether this person is authorised to act. This means that organisations always know who they are dealing with and whether that person is authorised to act. The certified suppliers of eHerkenning provide this security at different levels of assurance.

Since July 2014, the University of Twente uses eHerkenning at a EH2+ reliability level. Chris Tuinbeek and Fikri Aktan manage eHerkenning on behalf of the University of Twente. When university employees somehow come into contact with eHerkenning and may need an eHerkenning tool, they can contact one of them to see what is needed. eHerkenning  tools are personal and charged with an annual fee, so it is important to check where and for whom we apply eHerkenning.
