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.

The Fallback Mechanism can be used if the API Channel or certain API functionality is unavailable.

The Fallback provides TPPs with ability to identify themselves to the bank, an eIDAS certificate is required to access the Fallback Mechanism. The Fallback Mechanism effectively provides access to the PSU’s direct interface. Access to this mechanism is by way of unique URL.

As part of authentication journey where the TPP is using the Fallback, the customer will also need to complete the Multi Factor Authentication process as part of entering their banking credentials to complete the flow.

For information on how to access the Fallback Mechanism please contact us on api@aib.ie
