Electronic personal identification with an ID-card (digi-ID) or Mobiil-ID is better and more secure than identification with a user name and password in several ways.
- Electronic authentication provides assurance regarding the fact that correct data is received from the ID-card, thereby decreasing the risk of users submitting false data for service providers.
- All service providers are able to directly and securely provide their services to all ID-card holders without prior registration.
- This is also convenient for the users as they need not remember various user names and passwords – the same card and PIN are valid for all services.
For checking the validity information of certificates in real-time, the validity verification service of AS Sertifitseerimiskeskus should be used. The service ensures secure electronic personal identification and gives digital signatures their legal effect.
