Security is important to us. The sandbox and the live environment meet the latest security standards. We’ve employed the 0Auth 2.0 consent model to enable customers to grant access to third party service providers (your application) in a clear and secure manner. 

Our sandbox provides an opportunity for developers to test their app before building in production. The sandbox is a safe, secure environment where you can test your apps functionality and test our API integrations with your apps.

Please refer to the getting started page which explains how you can onboard and get access to our sandbox environment

1. eIDAS QWAC. This is the certificate to use in the MATLS network level connection at runtime.

2. A recognised certificate capable of creating a digital signature. The digital signature is required during the OIDC client authentication using the private_key_jwt client authentication method. This certificate can be an eIDAS QSealC or a certificate signed by a recognised public Certificate Authority.

Please note that we are aligned to FCA guidance during the “Adjustment Period” up until March 2020 and as such if you have not yet obtained an eIDAS certificate we will accept the use of equivalent certificates (such as open banking certificates) as long as they enable secure identification.
