New ID-card and its changes

At the end of 2018, the manufacturer of ID-cards changed. Instead of the former manufacturer Gemalto, the Police and Border Guard Board started cooperating with IDEMIA. In relation to this, a number of changes were made to both the card supplied and the related software and services and updated standards were adopted in the course of changing the manufacturer.

Validity of ID-card certificates

You can see whether your ID-card certificates are valid when you open DigiDoc4. An ID-card cannot be used for electronic acts without valid certificates, e.g. you cannot log in to your bank or sign documents digitally!

Certificates required for verifying digital signatures

In order to verify files that are digitally signed with an ID-card or a mobile-ID and/or digitally stamped, all of the root certificates, certifiers and OCSP-responder certificates used to date must be configured in the information system.
