PKIoverheid server certificate

Within iSHARE, both PKIoverheid server certificates and eIDAS qualified Seal certificates that are registered to the name of your organization can be used. The certificate is used for authenticating and authorizing your organization, for example by means of signed JSON Web Tokens.

At this moment in time all iSHARE Participants make use of the PKIoverheid server certificate. A PKIoverheid server certificate is valid for a period of up to two years. To prevent any issues with the use of the certificate you should renew your certificate before the end-date.

However, sometimes it happens, for example for security reasons, that your certificate will be revoked before the official end-date. Generally your certificate provider will inform you if this is the case. At this moment in time we are dealing with a situation like this for the G3 PKI-O certificates.
