What is a digital certificate?

A digital certificate is the only way, with full legal validity, to guarantee the identity of a user in the web world. It’s almost a mandatory condition for Public Administrations, to be able to offer aIcono representativo certificado digital y seguridad digital para los usuarios. safe service to users. In March of 2018 came into force the law by which any administrative procress must be managed with the Public Administrations telematically, so that digital certificates have become essential in our daily lives.

A digital certificate consists of two keys, one public and one private. These keys are mathematical algorithms, linked to each other, so in order to have access to a document encrypted with a private key, it is essential to know the public key. Once the identity of the user has been verified, the certifying authorities are responsible for issuing digital certificates and the keys for their use.

There are several types of digital certificates, although the most widespread by use are: the digital certificate of physical person and the digital certificate of company. There are also different certification authorities that can issue a digital certificate, among them, the best known is the FNMT or the National Mint.

A digital certificate is the unequivocal, legal and juridical way of associating a person with his digital identity.

If at any time the private key has been lost or stolen, the digital certificate must be revoked in order to generate a new one to ensure the digital security.

The public key of the digital certificate will be stored in a public access network together with the user’s data, such as name and surname.
