Transfer of identifying data

Deutsche Post provides the identifying data via the information portal for requesters to download.

For corporate customers who require the automated transfer of data, Deutsche Post offers a data interface.

Direct access: Information portal

In the information portal, you have individual online access to the identifying data.

The following interactive functions are available for this purpose:

  • Search function: Efficient access to identifying data by means of various combinable search parameters.
  • View function: Filter the identifying data according to your needs.
  • Download function: Download the identifying data as an encrypted ZIP file.

The information portal is recommended if you only require a limited number of identity verifications.

Scheduled data transfer

For automatic data transfer, data packets will be processed and provided for electronic collection within a desired time frame via the SFTP interface. The data transfer is integrated directly into the existing processes of corporate customers.

An automatically created archive contains all data not provided since the last retrieval. This is password protected.

This version is recommended if corporate customers expect a high volume of identity verification processes or require automated processing.

Synchronous provision: with the automatic data interface

If identity verification is performed via the POSTIDENT portal, the data is available digitally within a very short time. We rely on standardized interfaces based on REST.

Use of the REST interface is a prerequisite for use of the POSTIDENT E-Signing process.

The data transfer is integrated directly into the existing processes of corporate customers.
