To issue encryption and authentication certificates, the Applicant/Client has to submit the copy of his/her identity documents to NETLOCK. If the certificate contains organizational data, the Client must also submit documents proving that he/she is entitled to apply for such a certificate (proxy, specimen of signature). You can find out more about the required documents by clicking here.
Encryption and authentication certificates can be issued with Personal, Business, or Organization profile. The profile of the certificate determines what kind of so-called Subject data are included.
Encryption certificates can be applied for with software key storage and so-called key recovery service only. In this service, NETLOCK provides security retention of the private key of the Client and ensures its recovery as well as the decryption of encrypted messages in case of key loss.
Authentication certificates can be applied for with both on-device and software key storage. In case of on-device (SCD) key storage, please take also into account the cost of the appropriate device, if you do not have yet one.
For detailed rules on the provision and use of the service, please refer to our Regulations.
