First, let us go through some background information.
CVR is short for det Centrale Virksomhedsegister (Danish Central Business Register). A CVR-number equals a business’ ID number.
CPR is short for Det Centrale Personregister (Civil Registration System). A CPR-number equals a person's social security number.
PID stands for personal identification number. This number is issued by Nets and is a non-sensitive version of a person’s CPR. Nets can verify the identity of a person from a PID number to authorized parties.
Authentication methods in Scrive
There are three types of NemID-authentications in Scrive.
NemID with CVR
The signing party authenticates with the business’ CVR-number
NemID with CPR
The signing party authenticates with his/her personal CPR-number and the CPR number is displayed in the signed document.
The signing party authenticates with his/her personal CPR-number and the PID number is displayed in the signed document. This is the recommended authentication method when signing with individuals (not business), since the sensitive CPR-number is not displayed in the signed document.
