Service certificates

Service certificates are software certificates granted by the Digital and Population Data Services Agency used to authenticate a service provider’s service or server. Service certificates can be used to authenticate both public administration and private sector services.

The Digital and Population Data Services Agency produces service certificates and system signature certificates needed for the use of Kanta Services for social welfare and healthcare organisations.

There are also test certificates available that are intended for use in test environments.

Service certificates are based on the X.509 standard and they can be used to enable SSL protected data transfers between a browser and server or between two servers.
