Konsentus provides TPP identity and regulatory checking services to help Financial Institutions comply with PSD2 Open Banking. The Konsentus solution consolidates data in real-time across a multitude of databases and registers to ensure Financial Institutions only ever provide data to TPPs who are regulated and have customers’ explicit consent to use their data.
The identity checking element of the Konsentus service is based on the validation of a TPP’s eIDAS certificate.
The OBIE Directory Certificate Authority mimics the behaviour of a QTSP with the certificates they issue, therefore Konsentus can validate the certificates in the same way as it does for the QTSP issued certificates.
With access to the OBIE Directory root keys, the Konsentus platform can check and validate the identity of TPPs to securely interact with Financial Institutions who have implemented the OBIE API read/write specifications, in the same way that it does for TPPs using eIDAS certificates. The response, provided to the Financial Institution, will indicate that the certificate was issued by the OBIE Directory as opposed to a QTSP.
