The qualified trusted certification service for qualified certificates for electronic seals

WEBSITE UNDER CONTRUCTION

The qualified trusted certification service for qualified certificates for electronic seals is provided by NASES in two ways:

  1. The private key is in remote administration in the HSM module on the Central Government Portal and the qualified electronic seal will be used to automatically authorise their own electronic official documents (decisions). In this case, we recommend applying the procedure referred to in methodological guidance No 3/2015 of the National Agency for Network and Electronic Services to the procedure for the issue and initialisation of a qualified certificate for a qualified electronic seal on the Central Government Portal.
  2. The data for the execution of the qualified electronic seal and the qualified certificate for the electronic seal shall be stored in the qualified electronic seal (QSCD) establishment and this device shall be held by a public authority as the originator of a qualified electronic seal. The list of QSCD can be found on the website of the National Security Authority.

The provision of qualified trust services for the execution and verification of qualified certificates for electronic seal in both ways is free of charge. In the second way, the public authority has to procure some of the supported QSCDs in its own direction. The technical conditions of National Agency for Network and Electronic Services currently allow that the Slovak National Certification Authority National Agency for Network and Electronic Services can provide support for the following QSCD:
