What are PKIgovernment certificates?

Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) for the government, or PKI government, enables reliable digital communication within and with the Dutch government. PKIgovernment is a very high-quality and secure infrastructure, based on digital certificates.

PKIgovernment certificates are digital certificates that must meet the requirements of the government, for example with regard to the issuance process and the link to a tribal certificate (certificate hierarchy). They are the standard for securing electronic (government) services.

Both the government and companies can use PKIgovernment certificates. Professional certificates are intended only for professionals with a so-called Recognised Profession.
