Certificate service

Applications for using the technical interface can be made via the Incomes Register’s e-service from 1 November to 14 December on weekdays between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.

Note! Certificates may not be retrieved between 15 December 2018 and 1 January 2019 due to service downtime.

Certificate service

Organisations using the Incomes Register's technical interfaces are identified by using the Incomes Register's certificate service. The solution is based on digital certificates (Public Key Infrastructure).

All organisations providing data to and retrieving data from the Incomes Register use the certificate service. A certificate is issued to an organisation that is responsible for delivering data to the Incomes Register, or that has the right to receive data from the Incomes Register. The Incomes Register's certificate service issues the certificates. The certificate is used to identify the organisation providing or using the data and to ensure the integrity of the records. Certificates are issued in accordance with the purpose of use.

Once the organisation has agreed with the Incomes Register on the use of the technical interface, the certificate can be applied for and processed.

Certificate service test bench

The purpose of the certificate service test bench is to facilitate the development of the application that uses the certificate service interface. The test bench can be used to test certificate request, retrieval and renewal.
