Starting from today, the ESTEID-SK 2015 Intermediate Certificate must be configured in e-services


Dear Partner

As of today, the Police and Border Guard Board is issuing end-user certificates for identity documents with stronger cryptographic algorithms. In order for all e-services to continue operating with the new generation certificates, e-service providers must implement ESTEID-SK 2015 intermediate certificate.

Adding the new ESTEID-SK 2015 intermediate certificate is necessary to all information systems and applications in which it is possible to authenticate and provide digital signatures using Estonian ID-cards, Mobile-ID, digi-ID, residence permit card and e-resident’s digi-ID. The change also affects all systems in which the validity of digital signatures can be checked. We thank e-service providers who have already configured the intermediate certificate!

If you have not added the new intermediate certificate to the configuration, users will not be able to access your e-service with their Estonian ID-card, Mobile-ID, digi-ID, residence permit card or e-resident’s digi-ID and the service will not recognise their digital signatures.

We are ready to provide comprehensive support towards making this change.

We are ready to test your services after the configurations have been updated. In order to conduct a test, please contact us at support[A] and let us know how we should proceed in conducting a test.
