Electronic organ seal certificate

For the identification, electronic signature and, data and communications encryption by an administrative body.

What it consists of and what it is used for

A digital certificate is an electronic credential that allows secure identification, electronic signature and, in this case, can also be used for encryption.

When we talk about e-Organ seal certificate we refer to certificates that will identify and be undertaken by an application or computer development of administrative actions. It is precisely for these purposes that we have named.

In other words, just as we identify ourselves and sign electronically with digital certificates, administrative bodies can also do the same.

They are issued with a default validity of 3 years. Although they are also issued for 1 or 2 years.

What are the benefits for you?

  • Authorship or willfulness of an administrative action"
  • Confidentiality of the information handled by the body of an Administration"
  • Secure identification of administrative acts by means of computer systems"

Information that could be useful

These are some of the most common questions we receive. If you do not find an answer to your question, contact us.

How much does it cost?

The concrete value you will be able to see in the budget that will be sent to you during the request process. If you cannot wait or you need this value before, write to with the data of your entity and the certificate you want, so we can inform you.

How long does it take to obtain the certificate?

As you know, the application process requires action on your part and ours.

On our side we attend the requests in order of entry, always as quickly as possible. Although we cannot give an exact deadline, if your answers are also fast, you can get the certificate from a few hours to around 72 hours usually.

In what format can I download the certificate?

There are different ways to download the certificate, but the default and recommended process is to download it in .p12 format (PKCS#12). This is the most common and accepted format.

How do I renew my certificate?

The renewal actually consists of a new application with the same data as the expiring certificate.

The expiring certificate is not initially revoked. When you have downloaded the new certificate that replaces it, you will have to change it where you have it installed and then revoke the old one from the area for the management of non-personal certificates (NPSC).

I don’t remember my certificate PIN. What do I do?

The PIN or password of a certificate is defined by the person who downloads it at that moment.

As the custodian of this certificate only that person should know that PIN. We do not have access to it at any time and cannot help you retrieve it. It is a security measure.

If you do not remember the PIN of your certificate, you do not have access to it and you need it, we regret to tell you that you can only order a new certificate from scratch and pay its cost.

How do I know the serial number of my certificate?

The serial number is a number that appears on the certificate. You can, for example, install your certificate in your Operating System’s homepage and look it up from there. This is the easiest way.

How do I know if my certificate is type 4 or 8.

The e-Organ seal certificates we issue are qualified and type 8.

I have lost my certificate or I think it has been compromised.

You will have to revoke it from the area for the management of non-personal certificates (NPSC). From that moment on, the certificate is cancelled and can no longer be used.

Remember that revocation is irreversible. Once revoked, you must request a new certificate if you need an active one.
